Horse Property For Sale In North Las Vegas or Homes For Sale With Large Lots
Horse Property is all over the Las Vegas Valley, both on County and City land. There are sections of land in every direction of the Las Vegas Valley that allow horses. In 2005 the zoning designation for Clark County was changed from RE – rural estates- to RNP, which stands for Rural Neighborhood Preservation areas.
This county-wide zoning change continued to allow the sidewalks in these neighborhoods to remain dirt. Also included in the Rural Neighborhoods is the right to be without street lights. Every effort is being made to keep these rural pockets of land preserved and new pockets are often added.
Rural Neighborhood Preservation Zones
The requirements for a property to be zoned RNP are:
- Populated by residents with common interests in more open-space lifestyles than experienced in urban neighborhoods;
- Custom-built homes;
- No mandatory Conditions, Covenants, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) or homeowners’ associations;
- Suitable for keeping and riding horses in a rural residential setting;
- Trail access to mountainous areas surrounding the city;
- Residential lots large enough to park boats, horse trailers, and other recreational vehicles behind the front setback line. Having enough rear-yard area to construct accessory buildings, stables, tack houses, and other horse-related outbuildings;
- Residential densities low enough to allow substantially more physical separation between neighboring dwellings than typically found in urbanized areas;
- Modified pavement sections and few public streetlights and sidewalks;
- Less light pollution from fewer residential nighttime activities and house lighting in general.
How Many Horses Can I Have?
Clark County allows 2 horses on a 1/2 acre lot. Henderson, Las Vegas, and N. Las Vegas all go along with the County horse zoning Rural Neighborhood Preservation areas.
Know that just because a property has 1/2 acre, it doesn’t mean you can have horses. You cannot have horses if the CCR’s say they are not allowed. We have sold many properties zoned for horses, so we usually know which neighborhoods allow horses and which don’t.
Search Horse Properties
I searched horse properties for sale today. In all of Las Vegas, Henderson, and North Las Vegas, there were almost 100 listings. They ranged from the mid-$300,000’s to over 6 Million. Every area of town has horse zoned property and even some near the middle of town.
In addition to single horse properties, there is an equestrian custom home neighborhood by the McCarran Airport. These estates are all about horses, with homeowners sharing the stable, arenas and trails.
Areas around town have large and small pockets zoned for horses. North Las Vegas has quite a few areas zoned for horses, even though builders are trying to assemble as much land as possible. The Northwest has miles of custom homes on 1/2 acre or more without sidewalks. As an added plus, the area connects to Lone Mountain.
Near Mt. Charleston, there are horse properties at Kyle Canyon and on Mt. Charleston. North Las Vegas has quite a bit of land, still with room to roam, Sunrise Mountain has many parts in Rural Neighborhood Preservation areas, East Las Vegas has some, Henderson has 5 areas. Many people have 1/2 acre lots without horse facilities. Let us know what you’re looking for, and we will find it for you.

Clark County Buffer Zones
20 years ago, every area of town had an area of 1/2 acre or larger lots. There were designated rural areas with no sidewalks and horse trails. The last 20 years have seen builders buying larger ranches or assembling multiple parcels. DR Horton, Las Vegas, has been extremely successful in making “buffer zones.” DR Horton will get zoning approved from the county or different cities to make one-story tract home communities. Their lots are only 10,000 sqft lots- under 1/4 acre. However, it is a compromise between rural estates and tract housing. Using the term “buffer zone” is a way to follow the rural conservation area policies.
With the rules changing as land becomes more valuable, I see fewer and fewer ranch-type horse properties when I drive down the street. This is because of tract housing blocks the view from the road. Ranches are rather hidden behind these “buffer zones,” which I like. Let’s see if you agree.
