The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Community Board Overview
This is a feature we’ve seen featured within various packs in different ways over The Sims 4’s lifetime. Each iteration in a slightly different way and The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Community Boards are no exception.
Where Can I Find the Community Boards?
You can find the Community Boards dotted around Chestnut Ridge. In fact, there are three in total your Sims can use.
- New Appaloosa – Located just outside of the Hay Now! Equestrian Centre and Duke’s Hall Lots
- Rider’s Glen – Located near the Sweet Nectar Glade Lot
- Galloping Gulch – Located at the bottom of the hill near the Canyon Crossing lot
Community Board Features
Now, the community board comes with a range of different features. At first glance, it can seem a little overwhelming but in actual fact, the Sims 4 Horse Ranch Community Boards are incredibly easy to navigate.
Overall, there are eight different features that you can choose from when your Sim interacts with any of the three community boards in the game.
Here’s a closer look at what you can find on the Community Boards!
Call Ranch Animal Exchange
By calling the Ranch Animal Exchange, your Sims will be able to Purchase a Horse for $1000, Rescue a Horse for $250 or purchase a Mini Sheep or Mini Goat in numerous colours and quantities.
Ranch Animal Info
Here you will find quick helpful pop-ups relating to the Equestrian Centre, Horse Care and Mini Animal Care.
Looking for some quick and easy Simoleons? Then why not take a look at Community Jobs?
Choose from a range of different jobs from Training a Neighbour’s Horse to Sheep Grazing and more to earn some extra money. On average. community jobs will take your Sims four hours to complete and the overall payout will depend on your Sims skill level.
Upon selecting the community job, your Sim will go ahead and complete it. You will not be able to interact with your Sim during this time and once complete, you’ll find all the details of how they got on in the notifications panel.
Much like how you enter a competition at the Hay Now! Equestrian Centre, entering via the Community Board is just another way to do so.

Looking after and running a ranch is hard work. However, you don’t have to do it on your own. Why not hire a Ranch Hand to help you with the day-to-day running of your ranch? Simply select the option from the Community Board menu and you’ll be set!
Similar to using the Community Board to enter competitions, this is another quick and easy way to access the trainer options for your Horses.
