Featured Equestrian Neighborhood – Saddle Creek

Life is a little slower just a few miles east of I-75.  This is where you will find the elegant Old Florida equestrian lifestyle at Saddle Creek.  This varied community has homes spanning a wide range of time periods and styles.  Each home has a minimum of 5 acres.  With over 30 miles of equestrian trails, oak forest patches, fishing ponds, and abundant wildlife, Saddle Creek is a dream location for families. Families moving to Saddle Creek have more than just their neighborhood to enjoy.  The Myakka River State Park is nearby offering even more outdoor adventures, while the white sandy beaches of Siesta Key are only about 20-25 minutes away.  Clearly, the uniqueness of this neighborhood draws much attention from the equestrian lovers in Sarasota!  I recently listed a home in this neighborhood, and it went under contract within the first week.  Check out this beauty!

Did you know that Florida has the 3rd highest population of horses in the United States?  Don’t be fooled by the palm trees and sandy beaches, according to the most recent equine survey conducted by the US Department of Agriculture, half a million horses call Florida their home!
