Are you looking for a horse business? 1709 Horton Road, Knightdale, NC

1709 Horton Road, Knightdale, NC (Brighton Stables)

1709 Horton Road Ranch

1709 Horton Road Farmhouse

This home, in central North Carolina, is a working  horse farm and an operational business (Brighton Stables) with boarders and training facilities.  The property has over 20 acres of pastures, barns, run-ins, and arenas.  (One arena is covered.)  This horse farm has hosted horse shows for NCDCTA which included dressage and stadium jumping, and it has a cross country course, too.  A tack shop (Centerline Tack) is operational and included with the property.

The house was built in 1980, and the current owner has made many improvements and upgrades.  Caring for the horses and running the tack shop is more important to the owners than cleaning the house, so there are a few projects to do on the house itself.  Most of the house is on one floor, but there is an apartment upstairs (which would be perfect for a trusted farm hand).  An upstairs studio has unusual pull-down-stair access.  There are pleasant views from the wrap-around porches of grazing horses, as every bit of the pasture is utilized.

The barns and run-in sheds are extensive, with over 20 stalls, many with access to pastures directly.   One barn has a center aisle.  In that barn you will find separate tack rooms for boarders and the owners.  The seller has added automatic waterers and paddle fans in many of the stalls.  Some stalls are separate from the main barn, so you can keep horses which need more attention near the home, and control the herd dynamics.

This Wake County horse farm is for sale at $985,000. If you would like more information on it, email me at You could also call me, if that is more convenient, at 919-303-3588.

About A Cain

I am originally from New York State and moved to Pennsylvania for college and graduate school. My husband and I later lived in California and West Virginia, and then we were transferred to North Carolina. I learned to ride as an adult, in North Carolina. I have two horses now: one wild-and-wooly teenager who is learning from me, and one former race horse that has turned into a school master for me. They are both pretty sensible and great on trails, so we go everywhere. They live with me on my own North Carolina mini farm. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch them graze.
