The Right to Roam
Indulge your family’s love of horses with Montana’s latest real estate trend: The Equestrian Community.
MONTANA means land - lots of it. The western state evokes snow-dusted mountain ranges, high meadows grazed by elk and fish-rich rivers and the opportunity to have horses on your own ranch. It is embraced by lovers of wide open spaces and horses, a pairing that’s an increasingly in-demand narcotic for outdoorsy folks looking to escape the crowds and enjoy the equestrian live style.
Naturally, with all this attention, land values have swelled. In the early 1990s, half a million dollars might have bought you 200 deserted acres and a mile of trout river; today you’d probably have to fork over $3 million to $5million for the same property. Then there are the headaches: the pickup trucks, horses, barns, ranch managers and vets, which, at the most awkward times and in the middle of the night require your attention and your wallet.
Now there is a way that you can have it all. An attractive new concept known as the equestrian community has begun to attract a new generation of buyers in Montana. Its principle is straight forward: instead of purchasing an entire ranch, you acquire a parcel just large enough for your home site and for your horses in horse-friendly subdivided ranch. Each property is edged by 30 foot riding easements, creating a natural system of trails and wildlife corridors. Like-minded neighbors either own horses or enjoy their beauty as they walk or trot by. Your expenses are your own, and you do not need to concern yourself with the aggravation of owning a large ranch or of sharing in community property –such as a shared arena or stables In the end, you can feel like Ted Turner, without the sleepless nights.
Stallion Ridge Ranch, located just 6 miles from downtown Helena is such a community. Here you can purchase a lot from 2 to 14 acres from within its 400-acre boundary. Lots are fairly priced starting from $32,900.00 for 2 acres and you can still have horses with miles of riding trails and gravel roads. A seasonal stream and common area park bisect the Ranch further enhancing your riding opportunities and scenic pleasures. Riding opportunities abound with miles of riding trails and easements.
Build your dream home, put up your fences, build your barn to house your horse, and start enjoying the equestrian life style with neighbors of like mind.
Benefits abound: When you want to ride, simply saddle up your horse and take one of the trails adjacent to your home that leads you to the network of trails that are a part of Stallion Ridge Ranch. There you will meet your friends, and your horse has friends too. Once you step off property, your riding options abound. The 975,407 acres Helena National Forest boundary is across the road, and the Northeast corner of the ranch abuts the 1,009,356 acres Bob Marshall Wilderness area
So if you and your family love horses, open space, and the beauty and freedom associated with them, I’d like to invite you to consider creating a homestead at Stallion Ridge Ranch.
