The owner said, “When I got here, I just kind of felt at peace. This was exactly what I was looking for! A place where I could run horses, raise, and train horses, run some cattle and retreat with my family away from the big city pressures and business. It’s cowboy country out here and it has everything- history, topography, and water - lots of water, along with incredible wildlife and spectacular nature. Our ranching family and business interests have expanded out of state, which makes it difficult to utilize this place that we have loved so much.”
The owner and his management team have poured millions of hours and millions of dollars into expanding the versatile holdings, enhancing, and stewarding this ranch since 2009. They have optimized water, wildlife and livestock carrying capacity. In addition to running cattle, each year valuable polo ponies are boarded to take seasonal time off from the rigors of international competition to graze, recuperate and refuel on the irrigated pastures. This provides additional revenue streams to the exquisite property along with cattle, hay, and recreational income.
