Loxahatchee Groves is well-known for its large plots of rural land, charming homes, and its animals. What kind of animals, you ask? Well, aside from the day-to-day wildlife that naturally gather and spring from the lush Florida landscape, such as turtles (Loxahatchee is Native American for Turtle Creek), frogs, and birds of many feathers, you might be intrigued to find that you can also visit some lions, tigers, and bears… oh, my! Lion Country Safari is one of the few remaining drive-thru safari attractions in the United States, where you can hop into your own vehicle and pass by various African plains animals as they meander, frolic, and dine in environments that are close to home for them.
If the zoo doesn’t offer enough animal life for you, then the Loxahatchee Groves Equestrian Properties might help placate that animal instinct. Horses are a part of rural life, and there is no place for them (and those that care for them) quite like Loxahatchee Groves. Since incorporating in 2007, residents have participated in the future development for their town, and they have made it clear that they wish to upgrade horse trails throughout the community to provide a solid riding infrastructure.
In 2009, a report was completed titled Master Road and Equestrian Greenway Trail Plan, which analyzed the Loxahatchee infrastructure and made recommendations as to how to accomplish that very goal, as well as improve the roadways. Horse enthusiasts would be pleased to find that among the many recommendations included establishment of equestrian trails on all letter roads, with safe crossways at controlled intersections.
Need a cherry on top? The nearby village of Wellington is also world-famous not only for its equestrian hospitality, but also for hosting a variety of major equestrian events in the Wellington-Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
In anticipation of great advances for the Loxahatchee equestrian community, it suites well that many of the Loxahatchee properties available in today’s market are multi-acre equestrian properties; fitted with barns, unique homes, and open land – ready for your to board, ride, and enjoy your horses!
