Massive Horse Complex on Track for Southeast Idaho


Initial plans have been given the green light to build what is being billed as a "massive horse complex" on the Idaho border.

The Idaho State Journal reports that The Horse Station in Cache Valley would include nearly 170 acres of training and boarding facilities, retail businesses, an equine veterinary center, indoor and outdoor arenas, a hotel and condominiums. The project has an $80 million price tag.

The Franklin County Planning and Zoning Commission has given unanimous approval to rezone the land for the project. The Horse Station is to be located in Franklin County along Route 91, which is a major tourism route linking Idaho to Utah, Colorado, Nevada and Wyoming.
