What Should I Know When Buying a Colorado Horse Ranch?

Important things to keep in mind when searching for a horse property in Colorado are infrastructure, water resources and rights, and pasture quantity and size.

If you’re planning on riding and training horses on your property, an arena and proper fencing are necessities. You need to be sure there is enough room to build an arena if there isn’t one on the property already, and the fencing needs to be in good shape. Otherwise, you should be sure there are enough trails going through and around your property to accommodate trail riding.

Water resources are important for any ranch, and they are particularly important if you plan to board horses at your property. Water rights differ from county to county in Colorado, so it is important to understand exactly how much water you have access to and how much you can use in order to successfully run your ranch.

A good rule of thumb when considering pasture size is to double the amount of pastures per herd of horses. So, if you plan to own a ranch with two herds of 2-3 horses each, you will need 4 pastures in order to account for pasture rotation. Colorado is notorious for hot, dry summers and once a pasture is over-grazed, it’s very hard to bring it back, so the more space available for grazing, the better.

The bottom line is there are a lot to consider when purchasing a horse ranch. At Harrigan Land, we have Colorado horse properties for sale that have already been vetted to be perfect horse ranch land with all of the necessary resources.

Why Buy A Horse Ranch in Colorado?

Colorado is an ideal location to buy any ranch, and specifically horse ranches, because of its biome diversity. You can own a horse ranch in the breathtaking Rocky Mountains close to one-of-a-kind trail riding. Throngs of tourists flock to Rocky Mountain National park every summer and are sure to be looking for fun, family-friendly activities, like horseback riding.

Or, you can board horses and offer training facilities on a ranch in northern or eastern Colorado, where flat, open space is more available. At Harrigan Land, we have beautiful Colorado horse ranches for sale in both types of locations and all are perfectly equipped for a successful horse ranch business.

Can I Make Money with a Colorado Horse Property?

There are two opportunities to make a substantial profit when owning a Colorado horse property. First, the horse business you choose to run on the land will earn you money in the short term. Again, depending on the resources available on your property will determine the success of that business, which is why it’s important to partner with excerpts like our team at Harrigan Land to help you find a property that fits your needs.

Second, owning ranchland is an alternative investment opportunity that offers a lower risk option than the stock market. You can invest in a Colorado horse property that will increase the average annual investment return on your portfolio while the overall volatility of your portfolio will decrease or at least remain the same.
