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.

A large canvas with endless opportunity for the horse person who wants land!

Avon, Powell County, Montana

A homestead of more than 6,000 acres originally included Ravenwood Ranch. Later, it was divided into 3 parcels, with a beautiful 168 acres remaining as the homestead. Ranch is now being offered with full Mountain scenery and unspoiled natural beauty. Wildlife, including Elk, Moose, Mule deer, Whitetail Deer, Antelope and numerous birds are drawn to the irrigated meadows and pristine meandering waters of Snowshoe Creek. Moose are even known to calve their young down in the lower pasture. With full water rights to Snowshoe creek, pastures are sub irrigated or off the irrigation ditches and the entire 168 acres have been planted and maintained by the same family for nearly 40 years. In addition to the one mile of privately owned Snowshoe creek, there are five natural springs throughout the property that do not freeze in the winter. Amazing fishery with predominantly German Brown Trout inhabits Snowshoe Creek. The historic four-bedroom home was originally built in 1928 as the teacher's home. Later, a Merchant Marine added beautiful finishes including an Italian Fireplace and Leaded glass doors and entry way. Recent updates include added insulation, renovations to the Kitchen and bathroom as well as large double pane windows. The residence has a gas fireplace insert for cool winter nights and because of added insulation, stays cool in the summer. The rustic wood shingles are supported by a copper underlayment and a full unfinished concrete basement allows room for storage or the option for expansion. Outside is an older shop/garage with adjacent corrals with frost free faucets available in the barn, shed, and garden, and electricity is available in three outbuildings. A sizable garden has been producing thriving crops since 1993. Up until this year, the ranch was used to house horses and a small herd of Highland cows. Ideal location on a county road that is maintained during the winter for year-round access and only 30 Miles to Helena's Airport and 1.5hr to Missoula.
