Can I stable my own horses on my property?
Private stables are categorized as an accessory use in a residential district. An accessory use is defined as a use of land or a building (or a part thereof) incidental and subordinate to the principal use or building and located on the same lot.

The parcel on which the private stable is located must be at least two (2) acres in size.
Private stables must be located (50) feet from all property lines.
Riding academies and private instruction are not permitted.
Lots existing before the adoption of the Unified Development Code (as amended on September 22, 1998) which legally had stables located on them are grandfathered from these requirements.
