The Bucking S Equestrian Property is a desirable piece of land for any horse enthusiast. Located just 4 miles north of Thermopolis in the Big Horn Basin, the property boasts a commanding view of the Big Horn River and the highly productive farm ground below. The property has year-round access off of Hwy 20, and plenty of room to ride both on the property and the adjoining BLM land.
The property is well improved with a 3,656 Sq. Ft. home with an 812 Sq. Ft. unfinished basement and an attached 812 Sq. Ft. shop/garage. The spacious home includes 4 bedrooms and 2 and ½ bathrooms, central air, a large kitchen area, and two living rooms separated by a two-sided stone wood-burning fireplace. The home has had several updates including new flooring throughout the house.
In addition to the main home there is a very nice 37,500 Sq. Ft. (125’ x 300’) indoor equestrian arena equipped with lighting, a large foaling stall, grain storage area, and a heated tack room/office. Livestock corrals with automatic waters directly adjoin the arena and access the pasture land. A TL 5 tower pivot waters approximately 35 acres which can produce up to 5 tons of hay/alfalfa per acre providing valuable feed for the horses and can also be sold for an additional source of income. The farm ground was tilled up in the Fall of 2020 and is ready for the new owner to plant whatever crop they choose.
The town of Thermopolis is the most populated town in Hot Springs County as well as the County Seat. A blue-ribbon fishery, the Big Horn River attracts fishermen all year long. Just minutes from the property is the Hot Springs State Park “the world’s largest mineral hot springs” offering bathhouses, truly fascinating geologic formations, as well as many other attractions. Top-notch medical services and an excellent school system are also available in town. Thermopolis is approximately 52 miles South of Meeteetse, and 83 miles south of Cody.
In Thermopolis, due to its sheltered location, in the Big Horn Basin, and low elevation, this part of the state is often called the “banana belt” of Wyoming because the sun is almost always shining, and the wind rarely blows. Snowfall is usually light and doesn’t remain on the ground long. Thermopolis has one of the most desirable climates in Wyoming, while still offering the beauty and diversity of all four changing seasons throughout the year. Average temperatures range from the low 90s in July to the low 40s in January with an average precipitation of a little over 12”.
