Ponies and property are two British obsessions. So what happens when you pair them up? Check out these equestrian properties on Zoopla.

Brits' love of horses pre-dates the Roman Empire and shows no signs of waning. But racing them on the gallops isn't enough – we also want to give them a cosy home.

Last April we ran this feature, below, showcasing six perfect equestrian homes. Despite some of the eye-watering price-tags, they've all been snapped up, but we've left the properties here to give you some equine inspiration. 

And if you want to search for current equestrian homes, just visit our Property for sale section, click on 'Advanced search' and enter "equestrian" into the Keywords field.
