Free Horse Business Webinar: What Professionals and Stable Operators Need to Know About Land Use Planning and Zoning 
Speaker: Tom Daniels, PhD
Duration: 1 Hour including Q&A
Date: Monday, October 14th
Time: 5:30pm Pacific - 7:30pm Central - 8:30pm Eastern    


SUMMARY: Planning and zoning decisions can affect how land is
taxed, what it may be used for, and which standards and regulations are applied to it.  These regulations determine not only whether individuals may keep horses on their own property, but also whether horses have access to community parks and trails.

 With real estate rebounding, many developers are anxious to recoup their losses and start building. The problem  for horse professionals is that development often means pushing stables further away from urban areas. When stables are forced to locate out of town, it becomes inconvenient to drop kids off or for adult riders to make it to the barn after work. This can seriously affect the growth and profitability of your stable and has forced many barns out of business.
