If the horse will be living out at grass, then one acre. Two acres for the first horse, then one acre for every horse after that. It's generally best not to keep one horse alone. They are herd animals and require companionship.

How much land is needed for a horse in Michigan?

You will need to check your state, county, and even city laws about if you can keep a horse on your land at all and if so how much land they set as a minimum amount. Typically no less than 1 acre is recommended. However if you intend to put the horse or horses on a dry-lot then no less than 400 square feet per horse is the typical recommendation. Again contact your local agricultural organization and they should be able to tell you the exact minimum requirements.

How much land do you need to own a horse?

If you can afford to buy them hay year-round or you plan on keeping them in a stall for a portion of the day, you can make due with one acre per a horse. If you don't want to buy hay or stall your horse, you should have at least 2 and preferably more per horse. And remember, horses need a buddy, so if you only have enough for one horse, you shouldn't get a horse because he will not be happy without a herdmate.
