About New Mexico


New Mexico

New Mexico is also usually considered one of the Mountain States. With a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth-most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.

Formerly a Spanish colony after conquistadors arrived in the 16th century, then a Mexican colony until the Mexican-American War of the 1840s, and then an American territory until New Mexico achieved statehood in 1912, New Mexico still has a large native Spanish-speaking population as well as many Native American communities, offering a unique culture that clearly stands apart from that of other states.

Spanish is the official second language. New Mexico has a fantastic natural scenery, a major fine arts scene centered around Santa Fe, great outdoor recreational opportunities, and a distinctive regional cuisine.

Understanding New Mexico starts with grasping the overpowering importance of two of its geological features: the Rio Grande, which bisects the state north to south, and the nearby Sangre de Cristo Mountains, southernmost range of the Rocky Mountains and a part of the same large-scale geological structure that produces the Rio, the "Rio Grande rift." The eastern third of the state is an extension of the Great Plains both geographically and culturally and has more in common with the western parts of Texas and Oklahoma than with the rest of New Mexico.

The New Mexico horse industry produces goods and services valued at $503 million. The national industry has a $759 million impact on the New Mexico economy when the multiplier effect of spending by industry suppliers and employees is taken into account. 91,100 New Mexicans are involved with horses, either as horse owners, service providers, employees, or volunteers. Even more participate as spectators. The New Mexico horse industry directly provides 35,700 full-time equivalent jobs. Spending by suppliers and employees (in New Mexico and other states) generates additional jobs in New Mexico for a total employment impact of 45,000. There are 147,000 horses in New Mexico, over 60 percent of which are involved in showing and recreation.

RD Hubbard Crystal Springs Farm

Tularosa, Otero County, New Mexico

We are privileged to have the exclusive listing on the R.D. Hubbard - Crystal Springs Breeding Farm and Horse Training facility is located 5 miles north of Tularosa, New Mexico. Consisting of 155.133+/- deeded acres, this “one of a kind” training facility is the “best of the best” in New Mexico. Ruidoso Downs, home of the world famous Ruidoso Downs Racetrack and All American Futurity, home of the world’s richest Quarter Horse race, is only 40 miles east, less than one hour of this amazing property. The El Paso International Airport is 100 miles or one and a half hours south of Tularosa, New Mexico. The closest municipal airport is the Alamogordo-White Sands Regional Airport with a 7,000 foot runway. Ruidoso also has the Sierra Blanca Regional Airport with a 8,120 foot runway. R.D. “Dee” Hubbard was born in Smith Center, Kansas in 1935, the youngest of eight children. After entering the glass business in Wichita, Kansas in 1959, R. D. soon emerged as one of America’s most enterprising businessmen. He took two nearly bankrupt glass companies and soon turned them into a company that became the second largest glass manufacturer in North America before the company was sold in 1992. Mr. Hubbard’s illustrious career in horse racing began in the 1960’s. His ownership interest in horse racetracks was from almost every corner of the United States. He was instrumental in establishing the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, and as a member of the Board of Directors, he co-founded its Racing Integrity and Drug Testing Task Force. In 2007, Mr. Hubbard was awarded the “John W. Galbreath Award for outstanding Entrepreneurship in the Equine industry”. Mr. Hubbard has served as Vice Chairman of Breeders’ Cup and has been active with the organization for many years. Throughout his career, Mr. Hubbard has campaigned more than 100 American Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred stakes winners, and because of his achievements and impact on the industry, Mr. Hubbard was honored by the American Quarter Horse Association with a Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame in 2009. In the spring of 2014, Mr. Hubbard was inducted as a member of the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans. Mr. Hubbard originally established the Crystal Springs Farm west of Paris, Kentucky. This area of Kentucky is in the heart of Thoroughbred country. Mr. Hubbard sold his Kentucky property and moved his entire Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse operation to Tularosa, New Mexico in 2007. The love and passion behind Crystal Springs Farm are evident in the detail and quality of his New Mexico facility which was built from the ground up starting in 2007. This area of New Mexico was chosen because of the mild climate and proximity to Ruidoso Downs Racetrack. The average rainfall is approximately 12 inches with an average high temperature of 76 degrees and average low of 47 degrees. The facility construction incorporates many of the same features found in his Kentucky Crystal Springs Farm. The facilities have ample room for preparation of colts to be trained and sold. Additional revenue for boarding mares and their colts is also a benefit. Ruidoso Downs has annual summer sales and colts from Crystal Springs Farm frequently sell through these sales. Crystal Springs Farm has been operating as a highly successful broodmare program. The R.D. Hubbard – Crystal Springs Farm has raised and trained many successful winners, both in Kentucky and New Mexico. For a short period of time A Revenant stood at the Crystal Springs Farm. Crystal Springs Farm received great response from the public as well as other breeders. This facility has the capacity with 183 stalls to incorporate a World Class Stallion program, and the facility would be the premier breeding and mare farm in the country. Within a mile of Crystal Spring Farm is a highly successful veterinary clinic for large animals. In addition, the airports in Alamogordo, Ruidoso and El Paso make this facility easily accessible for potential clients, trainers or breeders. The climate, quality and cleanliness of the facilities are very important in any breeding program and this facility meets all requirements. Mr. Hubbard recently sold Ruidoso Downs Racetrack to several successful businessmen who are heavily vested in the breeding and racing of American Quarter Horses, and now, because of Mr. Hubbard’s advancing age, for the first time ever, the renowned Crystal Springs Farm and Horse Training Facility is offered for sale. Without question, no other horse facility in New Mexico compares with Crystal Springs. All facilities have been very well maintained. There are four (4) MD Barnmaster custom designed horse barns with 183 total stalls. These are all custom made professional equestrian facilities. The Big Mare Barn contains approximately 19,992 square feet and includes 34 stalls, each 16 foot by 16 foot, with rubber mat floors, two wash bays, tack room with bathroom and washer and dryer hookup.

The Yearling Barn contains approximately 5,738 square feet and includes 54 stalls, each 12 foot by 10 foot, with rubber mat floors, 2 tack rooms, and restroom with washer and dryer hookup.

To the north of the Training Barn is an open air and heated barn with 4 stalls each measuring 20 foot by 20 foot. In addition, there is a shedrow style barn with 14 stalls, each measuring 12 foot by 12 foot. The Training Barn includes a fire suppression system that is installed and ready to activate. The fire suppression system has three large water storage tanks that are tied into the system to provide adequate water for fire suppression. The training barn has two conventional walkers located on each side of the barn, plus a round pen. Race Track - The facility includes a six-tenths mile oval racetrack and a 350 yard straightaway track. The racetrack is 40 feet wide with a 4 horse starting gate. The track was constructed with interior and exterior safety rails. The track was designed by Dennis Moore. The track’s surface material was delivered, groomed and represents the best and safest training track for any horse. The irrigated fields and paddocks are watered with a 300 gallon per minute well (100 acre feet water right allocation) located on the northeast corner of the property. A 10 inch main waterline from the well ties into other water lines ranging from 8 inch, 6 inch, 4 inch and 2 inch. The 10 inch waterline runs around the perimeter of the tract. There is a 1,515 foot (198 drops) Zimmatic Linear sprinkler on the center paddocks and a 421 foot (51 drops) Zimmatic Linear sprinkler on the south paddocks. Several of the smaller paddocks are watered with above ground Nelson Model irrigation guns. The paddocks are planted in Giant or common Bermuda Grass for grazing. There are 44 paddocks that were built with the Kentucky Style wood plank fence construction. The paddocks are all 4 wood plank, round upright wood post, round or oval perimeter, with no corners for the safety of the horses in mind. The main dwelling on the property is an approximate 5,800 square foot custom built home, which was constructed in 1972. The main home has been remodeled and appliances upgraded since the Hubbard purchase in 2007. The home features 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, with a large master bedroom. The interior and exterior walls are all of adobe construction. The exterior walls are finished with stucco and the interior walls are all plastered and painted. There are two large family rooms including a large gathering or entertainment area. The home has central heat and air. On two sides of the home is a large covered porch area for entertainment. This home has an excellent view of Sierra Blanca Mountain. There is also a detached 3 car garage that has ample storage as well. The home is heated with propane, and there is a natural gas line that can easily be tied into. The property comes with a 1,456 square foot modular home that is perfect for employees or guests. This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. In summary, the R.D. Hubbard – Crystal Springs Farm is a property that you would expect to only find in Kentucky. You will not find a more well planned and well constructed horse property, from the irrigated paddocks, miles of 4 plank board fencing, horse facilities like no other in this country, beautiful adobe home, and a magnificent view of Sierra Blanca Mountain to the east, mesa country to the north, and White Sands to the west. Crystal Springs Farm is priced to sell at $7,500,000. Replacement cost of this facility would be considerably higher than this asking price. The employees are exceptional at caring for and training the horses, maintaining the facilities, and they have indicated interest in staying on with the new ownership. If you have the desire to own the most prestigious horse facility in New Mexico, Please give Dwain Nunez or Jim Welles a call for a tour or more information.
