How many horses can I keep on my property?

Horses are permitted on properties in any R-A, RLD and R-E zone with a lot size of 15,000 square feet or larger. For properties in such zoning districts, or any R-S or R-U zone, with a lot size less than 15,000 square feet (but not less than 10,000 square feet) a conditional use permit is required for the keeping of horses.

The total number of horses permitted on a property is subject to the size of the lot as follows:

Minimum Lot Size
Maximum Number of Animal(s)
10,000 – 15,000 sq. ft.
15,001 – 17,000 sq. ft.
17,001 – 20,000 sq. ft.
20,001 – 25,000 sq. ft.
25,001 – 30,000 sq. ft.
30,001 – one acre
6 (Two (2) additional animals may be maintained for each acre of lot area above the first acre).
