Where to Find Horse Properties Around Park City? 

May 28th, 2024 | Buying

With its rolling hills, lush meadows, exceptional trails, and wooded groves, Park City was made for outdoor enjoyment. Traversing the area on horseback is an altogether serene, exhilarating, and peaceful experience–one that many locals cherish. 

As such, ranches and horse properties are popular with homeowners. These types of properties are highly coveted, and for good reason.

In Park City, you can’t just choose to build or buy a ranch in any part of town. 

While some areas are specifically zoned for horses, others prohibit them, which could potentially make finding an appropriate ranch somewhat difficult if you aren’t sure where to look. 

Here are some of the top neighborhoods in Park City zoned for horses. 

In Town 

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, that is, the convenience of Park City proper amenities and the tranquility and space of a horse ranch, there are a few options available. 

Holiday Ranchettes

Located in the neighborhood of Park Meadows, Holiday Ranchettes is an incredible Park City equestrian community. Homes here come with properties ranging from about 1-4 acres, and the neighborhood is zoned for horses, meaning you can have space to board your horse, a small outbuilding or barn and even a guest house. 

Hidden Hollow

Located at the top of Deer Crest in Deer Valley, just next to the Snow Top subdivision, Hidden Hollow homes for sale are in high demand. With large acreage, the properties are expansive and private, and some of them come with horse zoning. In addition to this, the Park City trails system runs through the neighborhood, giving homeowners excellent access to hiking and biking trails for even more ways to enjoy the outdoors. 

Morning Star 

Another horse-zoned neighborhood in Deer Valley, Morning Star features beautiful, secluded homesites ranging in size from 3-10 acres. The size of lots as well as the privacy, natural terrain, and proximity to Lower Deer Valley makes Morning Star a popular choice for horse owners who want to stay close to more urban amenities. 

Aspen Spring Ranch 

Situated just a few minutes from Park City Mountain Resort, Aspen Springs Ranch is a single-family community with smaller homes on under-one-acre lots as well as some sprawling equestrian properties.
