What Should I Know When Buying a Horse Ranch in New Mexico?

There are a lot of things to consider when looking to buy a ranch property, especially a horse ranch. You need to be sure the land is equipped with, or has the space to be equipped with, the proper infrastructure, has water access throughout the entire property, and, depending on the type of horse business you plan to run, is within close proximity to trails.

Boarding horses is a year-long, labor-intensive business. So, if you plan to use your New Mexico horse ranch as an equestrian center with boarding services, you will need a property with stables, an area, and housing quarters for the staff you will need to help operate your business.

Access to water and proper grazing land is important if you plan to own your own herd or herds of horses. A good rule of thumb when considering grazing land is to double the amount of pastures per herd of horses. New Mexico 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.

Water and rights to its access can also be tricky as water rights differ from county to county throughout New Mexico. You’ll want to be sure you understand exactly where and how much water you are allowed to use on your ranch as irrigation and water for your horses.

Why Buy a Horse Ranch in New Mexico?

Like we mentioned, the cowboy dream is alive and well here in New Mexico, and you can bet that if you feel the need for space and open sky, then other people are feeling it too. In fact, many tourists head out West for the summer and early fall to catch a glimpse of the elusive blue, desert sky, and horseback riding is a classic, family activity that can bring big business, and a substantial income, to your ranch quickly.

Can I Make Money on a Horse Ranch in New Mexico?

There are two opportunities to make a substantial profit when owning a New Mexico horse property. First, the horse business you choose to run on the land will earn you money in the short term. Again, the resources available on your property will determine the success of that business, which is why it’s important to partner with professionals 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 New Mexico 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.
