Dallas Horse Farms and Ranch Listings

Call me biased, but I truly believe that North Texas is the best equestrian area in the country. I’ve made a lifestyle out of my love for horses, and included in that life is a collection of Dallas horse farms and ranch listings that reflect my love of horse and property. Because of my deep understanding of what it takes to have a successful ranch, or healthy horses for leisure, I can help both buyers and sellers of horse farms in the Dallas area.

North Texas has a rich history related to stallions of yesteryear. We do like our traditions in this part of the country, and ponies are no exception.

Wild horses have thundered through the tumbleweeds in our great state of Texas for hundreds of years. Packs of Mustangs could be seen (and heard) by Texas settlers of all areas. These rumbling packs were the descendants of horses brought over from Spanish explorers hundreds of years before the Wild West was born.

Their presence definitely set the tone for what would develop into America’s horse country. I know Kentucky is famous for their horse developing grounds and racetracks, but we have a distinct atmosphere that goes along with our rolling hills. The spirit of the mustang lives on here, giving a hint of the Wild West days that passed some 150 years ago. We even have a few (447 to be exact) high schools in the state who have adopted the Mustang as their school mascot.

Thanks to that legacy, Texas was known as horse country before it became part of the United States. Back before the battles for independence, our neighbors in Louisiana had to secure a passport to come buy horses for their soldiers. Mexico held the deed to this land back then, and while we still celebrate our Hispanic heritage, we are happy to exclude the passport portion of the process.

After all the territory issues had been settled and we were happily known as the Lone Star State, the role of steed evolved. They were great modes of transportation during the days of soldiers moving about the state, but after the dust settled, it was time to go back to working the land. Newly‐established Texans began growing crops, and used horses to help plow fields and haul necessities.

As horse power was traded for engine‐based help, the ponies became a source of entertainment and competition for spectators and riders. There were horse races at the Dallas fairgrounds in the 1880’s. Good times had by both men and women riders. Ladies were not left out of the fun back then, either.

Settlers to some of the original available horse farms and ranches in Dallas did use horses to work their herds of cattle, which lead to cutting horse popularity in the area. Cutting horses are a special group of Quarter Horses. All Cutting Horses are Quarter Horses, but not all Quarter Horses are Cutting Horses. Cutters make the head of the pack of Quarter Horses by instinctually knowing how to “cut” a cow off from escaping its herd.

Fast forward to the land of hooves

You can see why we North Texas natives have saddle oil running through our veins, with that kind of back‐story. That’s what draws so many new faces to our area codes, the tradition and knowledge passed along from expert to novice. Now that the Dallas, and surrounding areas, are growing in size – population and geography – there are sizable opportunities for both buyers and sellers of horse farms and ranches.

Folks looking to relocate to the North Texas area will find no better patch of land for you and your brood when searching for Dallas horse farms and ranch listings.
