Land used for equestrian purposes is a specialist area. Real thought needs to be given to these types of tenancies to ensure that the landowner does not fall foul of any regulations relating to subsidies or Agricultural Property Relief.
Although generally horses grazing on the land will not affect its classification, if the property is also used for exercising horses then this can change the planning position.
If a land owner wishes to let out their premises for equestrian use there must be very careful consideration as to the tenancy document. Chubb Bulleid would be able to assist and offer guidance in this regard. Should you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
