Horse Property For Sale in Montana



Nestled within the breathtaking landscapes of Montana, horse ranches epitomize the rugged charm of the Big Sky Country. Montana's vast expanses of rolling hills, pristine meadows, and mountainous terrains create an idyllic setting for these ranches, where the equestrian spirit thrives.

From seasoned ranchers to avid trail riders and competitive equestrians, Montana's horse culture embodies a unique blend of tradition and modernity. The vast, unspoiled landscapes of Montana provide an idyllic backdrop for horse-related activities, including trail riding through the mountains, cattle ranching on sprawling ranches, and participating in rodeos. According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Montana has 27,400 farms and ranches that encompass 59.8 million acres, placing the state second in terms of ranch land, right after Texas.

Montana's economy is characterized by a diverse tapestry of industries that reflect the state's natural resources, outdoor recreation, and agricultural strength. Historically rooted in ranching, farming, and mining, the Treasure State has expanded its economic portfolio to include tourism, technology, and energy. As of 2022, Montana’s GDP stood at $49.7 billion. Agriculture remains a cornerstone, with cattle ranching, wheat farming, and barley production playing pivotal roles. The state's wealth of natural resources, including timber and minerals, also contribute substantially to its economic output.

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

Avon, Powell County, Montana

Original home on 163.3 acres that was part of more than 6,000 acres originally included as Raven Wind Ranch. Later, it was divided into 3 parcels. The 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 163.3 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 warm 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, two bath 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 wood fireplace for cool winter nights and additional propane forced air furnace. The added insulation increases the homes efficiency with heating/cooling during seasonal changes. 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.
