- Country Classic Estates, Oregon
This 40 acre property, with a view, is located just outside the Metro Urban Growth Boundary in a highly desirable area. The gently rolling pastures will be turned into twenty home sites in an equestrian community design clustered around common open space defined by wetlands and a stream corridor. Equestrian facility design and planning services will include renovation of some existing structures and addition of a covered arena, new pastures, and riding/walking trails through the development.
- Cuchara River Ranch, LaVeta, Colorado
Master planning for an equine-centered residential development on a 2,200 acre ranch in south central Colorado. This equestrian community design will take existing ranch buildings and renovate them for community use with the addition of indoor and outdoor arenas, boarding barn, trails, and other non-horse oriented recreation areas. The headquarters site is designed to be developed in phases, with the potential to have a variety of horse shows and activities at the site. The horse show facilities include a 150' x 300' indoor arena with seating for 1,500 people. A restaurant/bar overlooks the arena from one end. The other end has pens to handle cows and bucking chutes for rodeo events. The outdoor arena of 200' x 300' also has grandstand seating for 3,000 as well as 200 show stalls.
- Deschutes River Ranch, Bend, Oregon
This 450 acre historic, working cattle ranch has 30 home sites ranging from one acre to 20 acres. At the heart of the development will be the ranching and equine operations. Home sites look down upon the grazing areas and equine center along the Deschutes River. Riding trails run through the ranch property, along the river, and connect to surrounding public lands for riding.
Master planning of this residential community in central Oregon includes an extensive equestrian community design. The equine facility consists of a 150' x 300' outdoor arena with pens for holding cattle during events; a covered 125' x 250' arena that includes viewing areas and a clubroom; and equestrian barn designs that will be constructed in 10 stall modules around a round pen and common area. The facilities also include storage for hay and bedding; farm equipment; recreational vehicles; and trailers. There will potentially be 40-60 horses at the facility and there will be resident caretakers and trainers. It is anticipated that the equestrian center will also be used for clinics and occasional horse shows.
- Fox Hill Farm, Sherwood, Oregon
On this 80 acre site, Equine Facility Design developed twelve home sites ranging in size from two to three and one half acres. The site, previously farmed, had significant slopes, trees, and distant views from the hillside lots. Equine Facility Design was responsible for road and lot layout; site grading; as well as the equine facilities. The equestrian community design includes an equestrian center which is located on five acres and will feature a 70' x 180' indoor horse riding arena with 24 stalls, a 100' x 200' outdoor arena, a covered round pen, all weather turnout paddocks, caretaker's residence, storage for trailers, and pastures in the common space. The site is surrounded by an equestrian park where Equine Facility Design created eight miles of riding trails for members use. Currently under county review.
- Oak Hills Ranch, Ashland, Oregon
This historic cattle ranch is located in the hills eight miles west of Ashland. The sloped mixed oak and pine forest offers excellent views of the valley below. Equine Facility Design laid out seventy lots in clusters on this 750 acre property. The lots range from two to five acres with the remaining land preserved in open space and developed with trails. The equestrian facility design and planning includes indoor and outdoor riding arenas, 50 stall horse barn design, storage buildings, caretakers' residence, and common pastures.
