Construction is expected to start soon on the Horse Station at Cache Valley, an $80-$100 million development to be located just north of the Utah-Idaho border on U.S. Highway 91 in Franklin. Master Developer Ernest Bleinberger said it will include a horse sports facility with training space, an equine hospital and therapeutic programs.
“Aside from the equestrian facilities, the commercial area that we just had approved to move forward with,” Bleinberger continued, “will include a hotel, a gas station/convenience store, restaurants, a retail village, a bank, we’ve had some interest from some grocery stores (that’s a very popular notion in Franklin), could be a home and garden center.”
