Carter Jonas is well-placed to provide equestrian property agency and professional services, including management, valuation, building surveying and planning/development, across the breadth of England and Wales.
We are involved in a wide variety of equestrian properties, including stud farms, racing yards, livery yards, paddocks, stables, and veterinary practices. We understand that such properties vary with the nature of the operation and resources, and often include a component of residential accommodation, as well as varying degrees of equestrian facilities.
Typically, with equestrian sites, the majority of the value is held with the principal property, varying more precisely with where this is located and how it is presented within the sale. Therefore, careful consideration should be given to the main asset’s condition and maintenance requirements, to allow client confidence when investing in equine operations.
Carter Jonas is a familiar face at equestrian events, having a known track record in sponsoring and running trade stands at point-to-point race meetings and three-day eventing competitions. These present an opportunity for us to speak to clients directly and discuss the full range of property services which we offer in this sector, led by our national team of equestrian experts and property specialists.

OUR EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY SERVICES
Carter Jonas consistently provides a very personal service for our equestrian clients. Through all our dealings, we never lose sight of the individuality of our clients. With every instruction, we begin by asking what our client wants to achieve from their investment. From that moment on, our team and our services are shaped to deliver the desired result.

FUNDING FOR EXPANDING, DEVELOPING OR BUYING AN EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY FOR SALE
We help clients to source financing for all sorts of purchases and projects, including in equestrian property. Whether it’s buying land for expansion, purchasing an equine property for sale, or developing existing buildings and land, we can help.
We recently secured funding from Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC) for a livery and stud business in Hampshire to purchase additional land to expand the business. This process involved working with the business owner to understand how the business operates, how the land fitted into the business plan and ensuring all AMC’s criteria for a loan were met.
