Improvements

Tari Horse Farm has been well-maintained and thoughtfully-improved for both horse and rider, with living spaces including a 4-bedroom, 2 ½ bath Victorian-era main residence that has been tastefully renovated, a 1 bed, 1 bath guest house (aka “The Icehouse”), and a separate office with attached ranch manager apartment. A 5-car garage detached garage sits nearby. The graceful main home features a gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors, a master suite with marble bathroom and private balcony, radiant heating and cooling, and a granite fireplace. The grounds beside the residence are dotted with fruit trees and large, mature landscaping, as well as verdant gardens and a large water feature with koi and a serenity pond.

Equestrian spaces are highlighted, first, by the classic red stallion barn, with its large paddock and double foaling stall and separate vet clinic and wash rack. A second barn houses 10-stalls with turnouts and is connected to a third metal hay barn that measures 48’ x 120’.

The stately farm entry is lined with white panel fencing, which also attractively delineates the numerous pastures, paddocks, and riding areas.

Climate

Tari Horse Farm is located in the Colorado River Valley, west of Glenwood Springs, where it sits at a wonderfully moderate elevation of 5,500 feet, so it partakes of both the mountains surrounding it to the east, north, and south, and the high desert to the west. This region averages 260 days of sunlight per year. High temperatures in the summer can reach 90° and January lows can drop to 10°. The average lows in January are in the mid 20s and the average highs in July are in the mid 70s. The climate here is arid, averaging 12 inches of rain and 39 inches of snow per year. The dry temperature makes both summer heat and winter cold more tolerable. But best of all, since Tari Horse Farm is located in western Colorado below the headwaters of several streams, melting high country snows supply the area with bountiful irrigation water.

Locale

Tari Horse Farm is located in the pastoral and idyllic Peach Valley, a rural area of farms and ranches that sits between New Castle and Silt, CO, along the main stem Colorado River at the western edge of the Rocky Mountains. Peach Valley has long benefitted from its moderate climate and elevation (5,500 feet), reliable irrigation water, and convenient access to I-70, which parallels the Colorado River here and allows for Tari Horse Farm denizens to easily access places like Denver to the east or Grand Junction to the west. Shopping, a hospital, and a burgeoning restaurant scene are only 15 minutes to the east on I-70 in Glenwood Springs, where the famous hot springs pool is also located for healing weary post-ride bodies. Aspen and Vail are both about an hour drive. Airport choices include Eagle/Vail (45 min), Aspen (1 hour), and Grand Junction (1 hour), with a terrific private airport also in Rifle, just 15 minutes away.

Recreation

All that the Colorado Rockies offer is within an hour and available year-round, including hunting, fishing, mountain-biking, skiing, whitewater rafting, and golf. The area is a gateway to the expansive and resource-filled Flat Tops Wilderness Area, where terrific hunting, fishing, hiking, and horseback-riding can be found. Fly-fishing in the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers is within minutes of the property and is world-class. The trails around Glenwood Springs and Rifle have become destinations for mountain-biking enthusiasts and sit only 15 minutes away. Lakota Canyon Golf Club is in New Castle and is one of the top tracks in the state. Glenwood Canyon is home to some of the most popular family whitewater day trips in the region.

World-class downhill skiing at Aspen’s four ski resorts and Vail’s two mountains is approximately one hour from Tari Horse Farm, and Glenwood’s Ski Sunlight is just 20 minutes away.

Horses

Well-maintained horse training, riding, and breeding facilities are all present on-property. However, an especially nice feature for those who like to trail ride, is that one can also head directly off-property to go for nice long rides up adjacent Slaughter Gulch and on to the Hogback area north of the property, where miles of BLM trails head off in various directions. Having the option of exploring nearby country out your backdoor makes the property feel a lot bigger. Of course the best of western Colorado horseback riding can also be experienced by trailering one’s animals, with literally thousands of miles of Flattops and White River National Forest trails all within minutes of the property.

Ranch Operations

Top-notch horse training, riding, and breeding facilities are all present on-property at Tari Horse Farm, with the capability of housing up to forty horses if a new owner is interested in a commercial operation. The property is laid out very efficiently, where one need not be exposed to the elements or walk too far for any task, while still having the room to house everything a well-designed equestrian property needs. The current owner even has a camera in the foaling stall to watch midnight births from their master bedroom. A covered breezeway leads from the hay barn so that horses can be fed without going outside in the winter. Three fenced pastures and four paddocks are all watered automatically for ease of operations. A high-quality hay grower is just down the street who supplies the horse farm. The long-time property manager is a horse expert and may be interested in remaining with a new owner.

Water Rights

This horse property possesses bountiful water resources – a senior ditch right, pond irrigation storage, and two wells, with a couple of big gun irrigation delivery systems for watering.

Mineral Rights

Seller owns 50% of the mineral rights on the property and they are part of the offering.
