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.

Additionally, colleges and non-profits like Horses Spirits Healing - current user of IEC - attest to the complete sufficiency of the facilities for all types of users.

However, there is plenty of opportunity for growth, especially since it’s only minutes from Billings - one of the fastest growing cities in the West. Furthermore, it has nearly 60 acres of deeded ground (comprising four individual and saleable tracts), and an additional benefit is the direct access to a 640-acre section of Montana State land for recreational use that includes riding and exercising horses.
