Equestrian Friendly Community Highland Township has some interest in having developers design equestrian friendly developments where at least some of the lots are big enough for a couple of horses. These developments would have common areas for arenas and trails. If you have any ideas please forward them to me and we will see that the proper individuals in Highland Township get your information.
