Leaping Horse Farm offers a special setting at the base of the majestic Mission Mountains. The 80± acre farm’s perimeter is surrounded by mature, diverse timber that frames its irrigated pastures. A custom log home was built with an exceptional level of craftsmanship in 2009 and the vintage farm home has been completely updated. The two homes overlook the lush valley, the National Bison Range, and the rugged peaks to the east. Adjacent Tribal lands offer direct access to the Mission Dam or a hike into the Mission Mountains.
This property is comprised of 80± deeded acres. Approximately 35 acres are under flood irrigation and the surrounding perimeter has a variety of foliage that ensures seclusion and privacy. The land varies from slightly sloped pasturelands that transition into thick conifers and deciduous trees blanketing the surrounding hillsides. The beautifully managed forest and contoured land provide spectacular views and several riding trails. Leaping Horse Farm has all newly fenced and cross-fenced pastures allowing horses seemingly unlimited grazing and a dry paddock area.
The horses have the run of all 3 pastures from mid-September until the end of April. Then they are restricted to the two smaller pastures to allow the hay to grow. The first cutting takes place around July 7th, bales (both round and square). After the first cutting, flood irrigation begins until the second cutting around September 15th.
The property backs up to Tribal wilderness area on the north and east offering unrestricted horseback riding and hiking trails. The Mission Dam is just a 5-minute walk to the north where you can fish or swim.
