This ranch was developed as our “forever” place, however, health issues have required us to stop breeding and showing my wife’s prized horses. Thus there are many upgrades not normally seen, especially in the basics and infrastructure. Call for the details sheet.
This excellent horse facility sits on 38.36 acres that has all the basics PLUS. Horse amenities include a 100' W x 200' L x 18' H lighted covered arena. The first barn is attached to the arena with 12 oversized stalls, covered 12' aisle-way, tack room, wash / vet rack with hot water, and hay shelter. There is a second barn with 15' center-aisle, 10 stalls, inside and outside wash / vet racks with hot water, feed room and a large air-conditioned tack room with 2 half-baths ( 1 private, 1 public ). Both barns have automatic fly mist systems & Linear Rubber Products mats ( 1 seam / stall ) over cement floors. Attached pens are heavy duty 6' H welded-grid panels to prevent rubbing manes out or reaching through to bite, etc. Last is a 64' round pen. There is no wood for horses to chew on.

It has an excellent well, electronic gate with keypads + clickers, and alarm system for security, has privacy, yet is only 8 miles from town.
