Equestrian Community: L’Esprit in La Grange KY

equestrian_communities_277Located northeast of Louisville KY in Oldham and Henry Counties, just outside of La Grange Kentucky, the L’Esprit equestrian community was the first large, planned development in North Central Kentucky that centered around one thing: horses. The 5400 acres was devoted to Arabian horses largely in part due to the tax incentives that were available at the time of its inception in the 1980s.

The plans for the development featured 60 horse farm tracts ranging in size from 13 - 700 acres. It had its own Quarantine / Receiving center that would keep incoming horses in isolation to avoid the potential spread of any diseases that the newcomers to the community might be carrying. It had its own veterinary and surgery complex, a maintenance area, and its own sales center.

The gently rolling community even had some nice water features with some gently babbling creeks flowing through the development, and 2 lakes.

The development did quite well initially - but was soon met with an uncertain economy coupled with the removal of the tax benefits that once made Arabian horse farms so attractive. Then the real estate market became very soft, which made the once in demand development unattractive, and unaffordable for most persons. The community then languished for several years - its fate not entirely certain.

Today, things have really turned around and L’Esprit has become the horse community that it was always intended to be. With gently rolling hills, conveniences of shopping nearby in LaGrange which has become a bedroom community to Louisville, and quick access to the I-71 interstate - the community has really revitalized and bounced back.

Many persons searching the horse properties for sale in Kentucky, quickly find that an equestrian community is exactly what they are wanting.
