New Mexico

Mexico's horse ranches and equestrian estates encapsulate the rugged and expansive spirit of the American Southwest. Scattered across the state's diverse terrain of deserts, mountains, and high plains, these ranches are not only working landscapes but also repositories of cultural and historical significance.

Spanish explorers and colonizers, including Juan de Oñate, brought horses to the area in the late 16th century. The introduction of horses revolutionized transportation, trade, and hunting practices among Native American tribes, such as the Apache and Navajo, who quickly adopted these magnificent animals into their nomadic lifestyles. As ranching operations expanded in the American West, not only facilitated cattle roundups but also enabled ranchers to cover large distances efficiently. Today, as modern ranching techniques coexist with traditional practices, horses continue to symbolize the enduring spirit and legacy of New Mexico's ranching traditions. 

Statistically, the New Mexico horse industry produces goods and services valued at $600+ million91,100 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 99,100 horses in New Mexico, over 60 percent of which are involved in showing and recreation.

With a GDP of $96.5 billion, New Mexico's economy is characterized by a diverse blend of industries that contribute to its unique economic landscape. Historically, the state has been associated with extractive industries, such as oil and natural gas, which play a significant role in its revenue generation. Additionally, New Mexico has a strong presence in the technology and research sectors, fostering innovation and scientific advancements. Despite these strengths, New Mexico faces economic challenges, including issues related to poverty and income inequality. Efforts to diversify the economy and invest in education and infrastructure are ongoing to ensure sustained growth and prosperity for the residents of the Land of Enchantment.

Eighty Acres with Stunning Views & Utilities

Rodeo, Hidalgo County, New Mexico

Approximately 80 acres of pristine high-desert land with mountain views in southwest New Mexico, where the sun shines 95% of the year. Located in the beautiful Caballos de las Estrella Equestrian Subdivision (the "Caballo"), this exquisite and affordable 80-acre parcel consists of 4 adjoining 20-acre lots that are being sold as a single unit. However, the buyer can elect to sell off any or all of the lots since they have already been surveyed and recorded. The property is situated directly on the AZ/NM border with excellent year-round access. Grid power and underground phone and high-speed internet are on the property line. One of the 20-acre parcels already has a registered domestic well (no pump) + 2 septic systems (these will be inspected prior to sale). Views from any place on the land are inspiring and unobstructed, with the 10,000-foot Chiricahua Mountains rising skyward immediately to the west. Across the valley to the east are the rugged and roadless Peloncillo Mountains. Lying to the west and south are expansive BLM and state lands with direct access for riding; and all roads within the subdivision are designated bridle paths. Caballo amenities also include a new gym, spa, library/game room, laundry facility, equestrian center with a 12-stall barn, 12 partially-covered runs, spacious arena, wash racks, round pen, turnouts, vetting station, feed and tack rooms, a community garden, and RV sites for residents and visitors. You will be amazed just how beautiful and functional this property is. And because of the large parcels and adjacent public lands, the Caballo will never feel crowded or overdeveloped. The "common sense" HOA rules are essential yet minimal. They are carefully designed to protect the environment, "big-sky" views, dark night skys, and the property values. For example, the rules state there can be no more than one main family residence per parcel + a separte small casita for family, staff or visitors. The basic parcel sizes cannot be further subdivided, no single- or double-wides...only site built homes. This gorgeous expanse of desert southwestern paradise will not last long at this asking price, so schedule some time to come out west to see it in person. You will not be disappointed!
