Standing among ancient Native American buffalo jumps in one of Montana’s most historic and iconic settings, Buffalo Jump Equestrian Estate dramatically frames the distant Spanish Peaks while quietly perched above the world-famous Madison River below. The ranch, consisting of roughly 250± acres of blufftop irrigated pastures, is home to one of Montana’s most impressive equestrian estates. Developed nearly a half-century ago by visionaries of their time, the ranch’s equestrian compound boasts facilities to be admired by elite horse breeders and the most serious horse trainers. A nearly 30,000± square foot heated indoor arena provides horsemen ample space to work year-round in any discipline of the equestrian arts.
The estate’s centerpiece is the timeless 40-stall stable fully outfitted with equipment shops, vet rooms, and multiple staff housing units. The newly renovated stud barn stands separately, rounding out the compound with modern living quarters just far enough away from the action. With the current ongoing renovation, Buffalo Jump Equestrian Estate reveals a sense of permanence seldom found on other equestrian estates. With no expense spared, the grounds are thoughtfully divided with the highest-end fencing and designed to modern bison management standards. Buried irrigation runs throughout each paddock, and the automatic pivot irrigation supplements operations with onsite hay production.
Along with the corrals and outdoor arenas, the livestock sorting facilities are state-of-the-art and the standard by which all else is measured. In addition to the ranch’s equestrian prowess, the Madison River, including an 18± acre wooded private island, forms the eastern boundary of the ranch, counting the ranch among premium fishing properties of Southwest Montana. Located just a short 15± minute drive from Three Forks and a 30± minute from the vibrant University town of Bozeman, the ranch is conveniently close to amenities but far enough away to enjoy privacy.
