What Should I Consider When Buying a Horse Ranch in Montana?

The most important thing to consider when purchasing a Montana horse ranch is the type of horse business you tend to run on your land and the amount of space you need to be successful. If you plan on running more of an equestrian-style ranch, you will need space for the proper infrastructure. Corrals, boarding quarters, and room for staff will all need to fit, so you want to make sure there is enough space.

You also want to make sure there is enough grazing land. Although winters in Montana can be cold and snowy, that moisture doesn’t last very long into the warm, dry summers. Once a pasture is over-grazed it’s very hard to bring it back to life. A good rule of thumb to avoid overgrazing is to double the number of pastures per number of horses in your herd.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.

This is all a lot to consider on top of searching for ranchland at a good price. Our team is here to help and relieve the stress of trying to find the perfect ranch. We understand what makes a perfect horse ranch, and we are ready to help you find one that’s exactly what you’re looking for.

Why Buy a Horse Ranch in Montana?

Horse ranches have a great potential for being very successful because of Montana’s booming tourist industry. Each year, families and solo-hikers alike flock to the mountains of Montana to get their fix of open space, fresh air, and beautiful views. Glacier National Park is a massive draw for serious backpackers and young families on camping trips.

These tourists are sure to be looking for a fun, outdoor activity, and horseback riding is a great option. Entertain tourists with the perfect Wild West experience, and build a successful, profitable horse ranch in the process.

Can I Make Money on a Horse Ranch in Montana?

Absolutely, and there is more than one way. The first is, as we mentioned, your horse business that you run on your ranch. With the endless amounts of tourists, any family-friendly horse ranch stands to make a decent profit simply off of the horse business.

The second opportunity is owning ranchlan. Ranch ownership is an alternative investment opportunity that offers a lower risk option than the stock market. You can invest in a Montana 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.
