Our current horse facility includes a 16-stall barn, with a dry lot attached to each stall, plus room for tack and feed storage. An arena and round pen, plus parking for trailers, adjoin. There is also a four-stall visitor’s barn, which is the model we will use for additional stalls if and when needed, and a large hay barn. A stall lease gives access to and the use of everything listed above plus access to the community pasture.
Stalls are leased to property owners only. There is a maximum of two stalls per lot for those using the community facility. Leases are currently $15,000 for a 25-year fixed term, which the owner may sublease or assign, but only to other property owners and subject to the two-stalls-per-lot maximum. If not in default, the owner will have the option to renew the lease at the terms then offered. In addition to the lease payment, there will be an annual maintenance fee for each stall, which is currently $250.00 per year. The property owners’ association (POA) will manage the barn. Copies of stall leases and the pasture agreement are available upon request. Shorter-term rentals of stalls will be offered on a first come, first served basis, depending upon availability
We currently have approximately 26 acres of fenced pasture, and the number of horses allowed to use the community pasture is limited to 26. There are 5 permanent groups of horses, with 5 pasture managers. Each horse must have use of a stall, either in the community facility or on the owner’s property. The pastures are divided in such a way as to allow for the preservation of the pasture, with rotation, plus a “sacrifice” area to be used as needed to keep the horses off the pasture in drought or wet conditions. Pasture space will be offered on a first come, first served basis with priority given to long term stall lease holders and to lot owners who have built their own barns and do not have space for pasture. Any horse kept at Thomas Divide for less than a month will not be offered pasture space unless there are less than 26 horses using the pasture. There will be a monthly rental/maintenance fee for any horse using the pasture, to be set by the POA, currently $50.00 a month.
