Business Opportunity (Equestrian Facility)

22 stall barn in City of Dublin. 2 minutes from 270. Less than 10min drive time from Dublin, Powell, Worthington, and Upper Arlington. Lots of opportunity for boarding and/or lesson program. Rent is $2500/month. Boarding rates should easily hit $500-$600 per stall per month based on location and current facilities. Proximity to well-off, child-centered neighborhoods makes lesson programs – especially intro-level children’s riding programs – likely to generate reliable income. Barn contains 18 full-size stalls and 4 half-size stalls for minis. Other facilities include 45' by 90' indoor arena, 100' by 200' outdoor arena, 50' round pen, 50' square pen, eight 25' by 100' turn out runs with 20' run in shelters, two pastures with 24' run ins, indoor observation area, tack lockers, and indoor lounge space. Access to undeveloped 20-acre field to the north negotiable. Water included. In addition to rent ($2500/mo), you will be responsible for all parts of your business, including all labor, materials and supplies, appropriate insurance, electricity, all maintenance, manure removal, portable toilet rental (if desired), and providing daily care for 5 additional horses. Please respond with your questions AND either business plan or description of your prior experience or related education and plan for generating income to adequately care for all horses involved in your business model and pay the $2500 per month. Responses without information about you and your initial business plan will not be responded to. Photos available. Owners live on site. Unscheduled drive-bys will be considered trespassing.
