Welcome to the first ever offering of the Horse Wyse Ranch near Townsend Montana. This approximately 740-acre offering has been operated as an equestrian training center for over 25 years with a steeped history in the area. With multiple homes, RV facilities, indoor and outdoor horse training arenas, and more, this property is perfect for those seeking a blend of rustic charm and modern comfort. Light grazing and abundant live water sources throughout the ranch make it a very attractive choice for a small to medium-sized livestock operation. The big game harvest success in the area has been spectacular with a portion of the ranch bordering State Trust Lands offering a travel corridor for animals transitioning to the adjacent croplands. Numerous upland game species call the ranch home including Hungarian Partridge, Sharptail Grouse, and Pheasants. There are also increasing visits from the area’s rebounding turkey flocks with gobblers sounding off as we took videos/photos of the property. With many top-notch fisheries in the area, including Deep Creek, Canyon Ferry Reservoir, Missouri River, and an array of crystal-clear mountain lakes (Edith, Grace, and Hidden Lakes), it will be hard to pick a dry fly for Rainbows or leeches for those tasty Walleye.
