location in Arizona
Horse Ranch is located in the San Pedro River Valley about eight miles
north of Benson, Arizona. Getting there is easy. A brief drive north
from Interstate 10 on Ocotillo Road takes you to the ranch. Only the
last mile or so is unpaved, and that portion of the road is maintained
by Cochise County. Views of the surrounding valley and mountains are
as beautiful on the property as they are on the drive to the ranch.
Carefully and thoughtfully designed and constructed as a horse raising/training/boarding
facility, Wild Horse occupies approximately 39.6 acres and includes
an owner's residence, a large barn with four covered stalls and attached
outdoor runs, two large laser leveled irrigated pastures, four turnout
pens (two irrigated, two "dry"), a full size riding arena,
two round pens, four additional covered stalls with partially covered
runs, wash racks, and a dog house with run attached. The equestrian
facilities are nestled in large, thick mesquite groves that provide
shade and beauty for riding and walking. (See "Improvements and
Horse was carefully updated in 2006 with a new, masonry entrance with
electrically operated gates, a 3,000' road, approximately 5,000' of
white vinyl pasture fencing, and new no-climb fencing around its entire
perimeter. In addition, the home was updated with new mechanical systems,
paint and carpet.

and Property Taxes

Only rarely do you come across an equestrian property as carefully
put together as Wild Horse Ranch. Thoughtful attention to functional
details and careful construction of all its improvements are the hallmarks
of Wild Horse Ranch. Space, beauty and privacy are also its hallmarks.
Situated in the San Pedro River Valley as it is, Wild Horse enjoys
wonderful views of several nearby mountain ranges.
Horse is easily reached from Interstate 10. Shopping is easy in Benson,
and Tucson- a major urban center- is not far away (about 45 miles).
Benson Airport (a municipal airport ranked #1 in Arizona in 2002)
is on the way to the ranch. Wild Horse Ranch is particularly well
located in relation to growth patterns currently emerging in the Benson
area. Given its zoning, Wild Horse also has potential for further
subdivision and development. There are a number of possibilities for
the future configuration and use of the property.
Horse Ranch will afford its next owner a very special lifestyle, as
well as good investment potential.
Word About the Wild Horse Vinyl Fencing...
In 2006 the owners installed more than one mile of four-rail five-foot
high white vinyl fencing on the ranch. This beautiful fencing extends
along the entire front of the property, along both sides of the entry
drive to the owner's residence, and around the irrigated pastures.
This fencing is stunning in appearance and accentuates the beauty
of the property.
About the Wild Horse Perimeter Fence...
The entire perimeter of Wild Horse Ranch (approximately 7,010 feet
or 1.33 miles) is fenced with 5 foot high, all steel pipe, top-rail
no-climb fencing. Vertical posts are set in concrete about every 14
feet; all pipes are 1¾", and all pipe joints are miter
welded. The white vinyl fencing where it occurs along the perimeter
is set inside the no-climb fencing.
Wild Horse Roads.
About 3,000 feet of carefully compacted and graded AB all-weather
roadway has been built from the entrance to Wild Horse Ranch to the
owner's residence and beyond, all the way to the barn and working/training
area of the ranch.
The attractive, inviting entry to Wild Horse Ranch was newly constructed
in January, 2006. The entry consists of stuccoed walls and pillars
set on concrete bases, topped with concrete crowns. A sixteen-foot,
eight-inch wide two-panel ornamental iron gate (eight feet high) opens
onto the tree-lined entry drive. The entry gates are controlled by
remote control or lighted keypad from the outside, and open automatically
when approached from inside when leaving the property. The entry drive
is lined by five-foot high, four-rail white vinyl fencing.
The West Pasture has been laser leveled in four tiers and measures
approximately 330 feet by 406 feet. It is fenced on all four sides
with five-foot high, four-rail white vinyl fencing, has two 10' gates,
and is watered by flood irrigation. The West Pasture lies along the
entry drive and adjoins the House Lot.
The East Pasture adjoins the House Lot and measures approximately
300 feet by 900 feet. Like the West Pasture, it has been laser leveled,
has two 10' gates, is flood irrigated, and is fenced in its entirety
with five-foot high, four-rail white vinyl fencing.
Northeast Turnout Pen
The Northeast Turnout Pen is situated just beyond the East Pasture,
and measures 105 feet by 255 feet. This working pen or turnout pen

Two turnout pens, side by side, are situated west of the barn. Each
pen measures about 75 feet by 315 feet. Each pen is equipped with
a 20' X 24' covered loafing shed that provides shade, feed protection,
and water. The east, west, and north sides of these turnout pens are
fenced with five-foot high, top-rail no-climb fencing. The south side
of the turnout pens is fenced with four-rail steel pipe fencing combined
with forty-eight feet of the metal siding that comprises the south
side of the loafing sheds. Both of these pens can be irrigated, and
each is accessed through a ten-foot gate on its south side.

and west of the barn. It measures 145 feet by 248 feet, and is fenced
with five-foot high white vinyl fencing. This working pen or turnout
pen is gated on its east side and is large enough to serve as an arena.
It could also be easily irrigated, if so desired.
Four Stall Complex
The Four Stall Complex is located north of the barn behind, and east
of, the wash racks. This complex consists of four 32' X 32' covered
pens and runs, a grooming rack, and a ten-foot wide covered walkway.
The stalls are of all steel construction. Stall fences are five feet
high, three-rail, 3½" welded steel pipe set in concrete.
All four stalls are partially protected from sunlight and weather
by metal roofing. Stalls are equipped with feeders and waters.
The Southeast Arena is located directly east of the barn, and is easily
accessed from the barn. Measuring 145' X 260', this arena is gated
with twelve-foot gates at both its east and its west ends, very near
the runs connected to the barn. At the northeast corner of the arena,
a gate opens into an 80' diameter round pen. Construction is steel
pipe, five rails, posts set in concrete. This is a very convenient
layout and arrangement for a wide variety of training and practice
