Horse Property For Sale in Montana


imgFrom antelope-speckled, short grass prairies in the east to snow-capped mountain ranges and free-flowing rivers in the west, it’s no wonder Montana has been dubbed “the last best place.” Inspiring landscapes and easy-going, friendly towns combine to form Montana’s six distinct regions. 

In fact Montana has several nicknames, none official, including: "The Treasure State" and "Big Sky Country", and slogans that include "Land of the Shining Mountains" and more recently, "The Last Best Place". 

The state ranks fourth in area, but 44th in population, and accordingly has the third-lowest population density in the United States. 

Montana is well known for its mountainous western region, most of which is part of the Northern Rocky Mountains. About 60% of the state is prairie, part of the northern Great Plains.

The economy is primarily based on services, with ranching, wheat farming, oil and coal mining in the east, and lumber, tourism, and hard rock mining in the west.  Millions of tourists annually visit Glacier National Park, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, and three of the five entrances to Yellowstone National Park. The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that Montana's total state product in 2003 was $26 billion. 

Montana is a relative hub of beer microbrewing, ranking third in the nation in number of craft breweries per capita. 

Montana's personal income tax contains 7 brackets, with rates ranging from 1% to 6.9%. Montana has no sales tax. 

In presidential elections, Montana was long classified as a swing state, though in recent years, Montana has been classified as a Republican-leaning state, as the state supported Republican presidential candidates in every election from 1996 to the present.

The Montana State University Department of Animal and Range Sciences estimates that in the State of Montana are between 150,000 and 180,000 horses.

Montana is home to one herd of wild horses which is located in the Pryor Mountains south of Billings along the Montana-Wyoming border. For more than a century, the Pryor Mountains have been home to free-roaming bands of wild horses. In 1968 Montana set aside 31,000 acres in the Pryor Mountains as a public range for the wild horses living there.  The Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range is unique in both its setting and for the wild horses that inhabit it. Many of the horses have primitive striping on their backs, withers, and legs and are reputed to be descendents of "colonial" Spanish horses.

19,490+ / - deeded acres and HUGE potential!

Custer, Yellowstone County, Montana

The Saint Labre Ranch presents the first offering of this 19,490+/- ac grass ranch in 25 years. Owned by the St Labre Indian Educational Association, it has provided an educational opportunity for the younger Northern Cheyenne and Crow children to have a working ranch experience. This Ranch is located approximately 5 miles North of Custer, MT and the Yellowstone River. The Bighorn River, a renowned Blue Ribbon trout stream, converges with the Yellowstone River only 10 miles away from the ranch. This stream, famous for monster trout, flows North from the Yellowtail Dam at Fort Smith. The dam backs up 55 miles of reservoir filled with walleye and trout, and offers fabulous recreational boating as well. Looking up from the reservoir at the edge of 100 foot cliffs you will often see the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang herd roaming on their Preserve. The historically famous Little Bighorn Battlefield and Custer National Cemetery is also roughly an hour’s drive from the ranch. This superbly located Ranch land has been well cared for and the management indicates it has never been overgrazed. The improvements consist of one main Ranch House: a 2,288 sf, 2003 double-wide that has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The second house, built in 1975, is 2,624 sf and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The shop is 26’ x 61’ and is heated. There is an exceptional processing area surrounded by metal fence, along with a barn, loading chute and sorting alleys that lay out over approximately 5 acres and in good condition. The processing drum and squeeze chute are designed for buffalo as well as cattle and are built stoutly. There is power that services 15 of the 16 wells that feed the 23 watering tanks scattered across the ranch. There are also various reservoirs. There’s great access to a county road, and the fences have been upgraded due to wildfires that came through the ranch in 2021. The regrowth of the grass is fantastic! Not only will you see complete elimination of sagebrush in those areas, but the grass, much of which is knee-high, is being allowed to go to seed and has not been grazed on in 2022. It is a great experience to travel over such a wide spread parcel of entirely deeded land. The offering of the St. Labre Ranch is a more than rare opportunity. Showings will be to qualified Buyers only. Please call Pat Schindele, Broker/Agent 406-591-2551 with any questions.
