HorsemansHip made simple

Clinton Anderson’s Signature Method

T

op clinician, Clinton Anderson is renowned for his easy-to-understand method of horsemanship that focuses on safety. What started as a passion for horses as a young boy in his native Australia has turned into an all-consuming desire to help others achieve a new level of horsemanship. As a teenager, he apprenticed under Australian horsemen – Gordon McKinlay and Ian Francis, studied every book and video he could get his hands on and even traveled to the States as a young trainer to learn from the American greats. “I’m

a firm believer that you never stop learning or adding to your skills,” Clinton shares. “Over the past 19 years, I’ve gained an incredible amount of knowledge and experience.” The culmination of which is the Downunder Horsemanship Method, a step-by-step program that helps owners achieve an obedient, safe and willing horse.

Volume 40 Farm&Ranch West


What separates Clinton’s method from other programs is his focus on safety and achieving results quickly. “No one wants to be around a horse that constantly makes you look over your shoulder with fear,” Clinton explains. “Whether you compete and go to horse shows on the weekends or trail ride every chance you get, being around your horse should be a relaxing, good time. You should enjoy your partnership with him and he should enjoy being around you.” Clinton’s method focuses on earning the horse’s respect through a series of groundwork and riding exercises designed to gain control of the horse’s feet. “When you can control your horse’s feet, you gain confidence, and if you have confidence in your horse and in your ability to control him, you can relax and have fun,” he emphasizes. Clinton first started sharing his method in 1998 when he toured the States conducting clinics and tours. By 2001, he became the first clinician to start a television series on horse training for RFD-TV, and today Downunder Horsemanship is the network’s highest rated equine program. Clinton made headlines in 2003 when he won the Road to the Horse Colt Starting Challenge and then again in 2005 when he became the first ever two-time champion of the event, which involves breaking an untrained colt in just three hours. Downunder Horsemanship is headquartered in Stephenville, Texas where Clinton continues to inspire the dreams of horsemen with instructional DVDs and written manuals that comprise an in-depth home-study course and innovative training tools. In a little over three years, his No Worries Club, a fan-based community, has grown to over 13,000 members and is gaining in popularity. A respected trainer in his own right, Clinton breeds and shows his own reining horses and consistently places at the top of the sport. Hundreds of horse owners travel to his ranch each year to attend clinics where they learn to excel their horsemanship, and he conducts standing room-only tours bringing crowds to their feet explaining the benefits of the Method and demonstrating the incredible bond that can be established between horse and human.

matched to an owner looking for a safe and trusting partner. Trained by his apprentices, Signature Horses know Clinton’s entire program from fundamentals groundwork to advanced maneuvers. “Whether you’re looking to build your confidence with a safe, dependable and exceptionally well-trained horse, or achieve an in-depth understanding of the Method that you can use to excel in any discipline with any horse, Signature Horses are an opportunity to find the horse of your dreams,” Clinton explains. These horses are responsive and well-mannered enough for beginners, including

children and older adults. Safe, respectful and attentive to riders’ needs, Signature Horses provide a fun and fulfilling learning experience, and as a rider’s confidence and horsemanship skills develop, the Signature Horse is there ready to accelerate their learning. “They are great for riders who are looking to gain confidence in the saddle again,” Clinton says, adding that riders will never outgrow their Signature Horse because they are capable of excelling in any chosen discipline Clinton firmly believes that there are no shortcuts when it comes to getting a

Barney Creek Ranch

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the words should flow freely, unceasingly— if one’s breath was not stolen by the sight.

In Paradise Valley, the world is a breathtaking canvas of natural beauty conveyed in layers: towering mountains, sloping foothills, extensive valleys and a roaring river that shapes and gives life to it all—a scene perfectly scripted and infinitely inspiring. Once owned by American novelist and screenwriter Thomas McGuane, III, Barney Creek Ranch was a place of inspiration, a private retreat where he bore witness to the ever-changing American West: its storied past and its uncertain future. Today, one thing is certain. Barney Creek remains a place where natural beauty and historic buildings still dominate the landscape, vastly untouched. “It’s exceptional. There’s really no other way to describe it,” said Tracy Raich, owner of Raich Montana Properties, LLC and a consistent top seller in the southwestern Montana real estate market. “You can see beauty throughout Paradise Valley, but Barney Creek really lets you live it. This is one of the most exceptional recreational properties of this size to come on the market.” Encompassing 661± deeded acres, Barney Creek Ranch is a recreational haven for the hunter or general outdoor enthusiast who desires more than a view from the porch. Bordered by U.S. Forest Service land and thousands of acres of wilderness and surrounded by three mountain ranges, the ranch is literally submerged within meadows, rolling hills, mature aspen stands, creek frontage and extensive grasslands. Diverse topography welcomes the hunter with dense coniferous forests filled with wildlife and the outdoorsman with exclusive public lands for hiking, skiing and horseback riding. Accessed off Barney Creek Road, just 20 minutes south of Livingston, the ranch has fencing on three sides, as well as numerous pastures and grazing land that could handle up to 120 head of cattle. The ranch features 1,000 feet of Barney Creek frontage, and Pine Creek is used for floodirrigation to 40± acres of pasture and 40± acres of hay ground. Additional water is provided by two wells. A perfect blend of contemporary architecture with rustic accents, the 2,916-square-foot, four-bedroom, two-bath main home is a true retreat, perfect for quiet seclusion or entertaining guests. The spacious floor plan features vaulted ceilings, pathways that allow effortless movement of light and people

from room to room, warm wooden accents and an exceptional charm as welcoming as it is gorgeous. Large windows frame picturesque views of the property and allow natural light to fill every room. Remodeled in 1985 with new flooring and an updated kitchen and baths, the two-level home offers a western-facing deck and a three-stall, 782-square-foot garage (built in 1997) with electricity. Complementing the main home, a 192-squarefoot guest cabin will charm your guests with a private place amidst the meadows. Featuring a quaint front porch, a three-quarter bath and a sleeping loft, this smaller cottage provides all the warmth of the main home. Yet, for the ultimate escape, a mountaintop hunter’s cabin provides a bird’s-eye view of Paradise Valley and the famed Yellowstone River. Complete with a stove and bunks, the cabin is perfect for the hunter planning for a day amidst the valley and its plethora of wildlife. Nurtured by the world-renowned Yellowstone River and three world-famous spring creeks just minutes away, the wildlife roaming Barney Creek Ranch is as diverse and magnificent as the ranch itself. From the depth of the river, Yellowstone cutthroats and rainbow and brook trout rise to dance along the surface, beckoning anglers to enjoy fly-fishing in the crystal-clear Blue Ribbon waters. At the ranch, elk and mule and whitetail deer migrate through the meadows and up the

timbers slopes year round. The sight of the massive beasts traversing the property is incredible, and their calls unmistakable as they echo off the mountains and fill the foothills with the sounds of nature. In addition, the sight of birds of prey, wolves, mountain lion, moose and bear provide further evidence of a true wildlife haven with a historical charm. A testament to Barney Creek Ranch’s historical roots, the forest-green barn (built in 1920) is an iconic landmark, instantly familiar and still functional after almost a century. The barn features a main floor with two closed stalls with exterior paddocks and potential for expansion on the other side of the breezeway, Volume 40 Farm&Ranch West

a newer tack room, an upper-level hay loft, two turnout sheds. Directly adjacent to the barn lie a 276-square-foot granary, a 1,860-squarefoot mechanics shed with large access doors and a 324-square-foot, two-room tool shed. Additional improvements include an indoor riding arena (80' by 100') with a tack room and an outdoor arena (165' by 78') for the equestrian enthusiast eager to ride the terrain. Though one could ride for miles and never see a soul, Barney Creek Ranch has convenient access to big-city amenities in Livingston and Bozeman (45 minutes). Celebrating an Old West heritage with modern amenities, both historic locales feature fine dining and shopping, music and art galleries, medical centers, year-round events and access to private and commercial airports. “You don’t have to sacrifice privacy for convenience,” said Raich. “That’s one of the beauties of Barney Creek. There are so many possibilities. If you want a high-quality ranch, it’s ready. If you want a place to get away on the weekend, it’s here. If you want recreation, the hardest part is deciding what to do.” Throughout his career, Thomas McGuane, III feared for the death of the American West, the passing of a great legacy to the encroaching cities just on the horizon. He feared the loss of the land to parking lots, mountains to skyscrapers and, perhaps most importantly, the dissolution of the Western spirit. At Barney Creek Ranch, the spirit survives and awaits a new generation to preserve its legacy. Offered for $6,995,000.00 (Some equipment and home furnishings will convey at closing). v For more information on Barney Creek Ranch or to schedule a showing, please contact Tracy Raich, Broker/Owner of Raich Montana Properties, LLC in Livingston, Montana at 406 333-7184 or Tracy@RMPMontana.com.

Entry into Dancing Wind Ranch

In 1864, David Shorthill, a Civil War veteran, came to Montana to discover the American dream and, instead, founded a legacy. An

adventurer by nature, he traveled into the valley following the promise of gold, and discovered his fortune in the foothills of the Gallatin and Absaroka Mountains. Ten years later, the Shorthill family traded East Coast luxury for a Western lifestyle and returned to Montana—a place of pristine beauty and endless opportunity—an undiscovered paradise.

“I truly believe that Paradise Valley is a glimpse of heaven,” said Gwen Wagner, owner of Legacy Lands, LLC and a dedicated, personalized agent with over 17 years of experience in Paradise Valley real estate. A resident of Livingston for 45 years, Gwen has extensive knowledge of Montana’s rural property market. “It’s a truly unique place, not just for its beauty, but the sense of peace you find, the tranquility. As a year-round home or just a place to retreat on the weekends, Dancing Wind Ranch takes everything you imagine about Montana and proves it a reality.” On his daughter’s wedding day, David Shorthill gifted the new couple a masterpiece of land framed by majestic mountains and forest, colored

Pine Creek flowing along the southern border of the ranch

by verdant meadows and brought to life by the new family who called it home. Years later, this rare canvas received the name “Dancing Wind” and was expanded in the 1990s by Jay and Tamme Call to create a private 1,749±-deeded-acre retreat. Set in the heart of the world-famous Paradise Valley and the prized Pine Creek Drainage area, the ranch features privacy in its location, perfection in its scenery and pleasure in its amenities. Bordered by the Gallatin National Forest (3.25 miles) and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness (.25 miles) and framed by the foothills of the Absaroka Mountain Range, the ranch provides assured privacy in a quiet part of the valley rich with lush vegetation and native wildlife. The ranch offers 938 grazing acres, 311 forest acres, 495 tillable irrigated acres and 5 farmstead acres—a diverse range of land that provides for various farming, recreational and development opportunities. In essence, Dancing Wind is more than just beautiful—it works. “I grew up on a ranch, so I know the details that make the difference between a ranch that looks good and a ranch that works well. Dancing Wind is one of those ranches that not only offers an owner the physical esthetic, but the overall quality of the amenities are just outstanding. It’s self-contained, ‘clean’ and ready to go the moment you drive through the gate,” said Gwen. A three-mile paved drive leads from East River Road to the executive home. Set within the meadows along Poole Creek, a 2,800±-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath manager’s home (built in 1995), a 2,700±-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath guesthouse (also built in 1995), helicopter hangar and an excellent array of quality cattle-handling facilities, including shops, barns, hired hand headquarters, shelters and corrals, make up the central ranch headquarters. Dancing Wind runs a fully self-sustained, 200±-head cattle operation with no required outside hay purchases or grazing leases. Pool Creek running between the guesthouse and horse barn

Ranging in elevation from 4,830' at the entrance to 6,750' near the national forest/wilderness border, the ranch features the entire spectrum of Montana topography: irrigated and sub-irrigated hay meadows, rolling hills, high alpine meadows, cliffs and rock-faced mountains, steep canyons, slow and meandering tree-lined creek bottoms and cascading waterfalls. Due to its diverse topography, size, location and wilderness border, the ranch has the potential for a conservation easement. The ranch’s extensive water rights (priority dates back to 1882) include the South Fork of Deep Creek, Poole Creek, Pine Creek and their tributaries, as well as developed springs and a picturesque stocked pond near the executive residence. Designed by the world-renowned and award-winning Jonathan Foote and built by OSM in 1997, the stunning main home reflects the clean, simple and picturesque Montana lifestyle. Creatively constructed from native Montana stone and antique timbers, the home welcomes you inside with the warm embrace of reclaimed wood, invites you to linger amidst a spacious floor plan, beckons you to gaze through wall-sized windows at the mountainous landscape and entreats both owner and guests to relax amid the rustic atmosphere enhanced by a plethora of modern amenities. More than a home, this alpine retreat features three bedrooms, four full baths, two half-baths, an attached three-car garage and 8,031± square feet for endless entertaining and relaxation that moves seamlessly onto the 2,400±-square-foot patio with breathtaking ranch views. From the home, Montana’s vibrant playground is displayed through rolling meadows, a seasonal waterfall that skips down the rocks and the vast canyon mouth that throws back echoes of the ever present “dancing wind”—all under the watchful gaze of the ranch’s quiet sentinel: Black Mountain. “Imagine waking to the sun rising over the mountains, the smell of the crisp air moving through the valley and a house full of the warmth of family and friends. That’s what it’s like to call Dancing Wind Ranch home,” said Gwen. Of course, living in the shadow of Black Mountain does not mean sacrificing city amenities. Just 10 miles south of Livingston, the ranch is easily accessible and offers private jet access at Mission Field (Livingston) or Gallatin Field in Bozeman (45 minutes). In Livingston, one can enjoy art galleries, fine dining and shopping, as well as numerous events throughout the year. Also in close proximity, Bozeman offers art and music, a major university and medical center and close proximity to several recreational opportunities in Bridger Bowl, just 15 minutes away. In essence, Dancing Wind is the best of all worlds: the pride of owning one of the last legacy ranches in Montana and the joy of experiencing the Montana lifestyle from sunrise to sunset. “Montana is so vast. There are so few borders here and so many ways you can discover yourself. Dancing Wind invites you to explore, to escape the city and live amidst all this natural beauty. I ask you; where else can one truly be a part of ‘Paradise’?” Offered for $33,000,000. (All water and mineral (no known fracturing) rights will convey with the sale. Purchase could include the sale of cattle, equipment, airplane hangar at Livingston Mission Field and most home furnishings.) v Irrigation system on ranch meadows with McKnight, Martin and Black Mountains

The Bell Ranch

T

New Mexico v San Miguel County v Tucumcari

The Bell Ranch is one of the most important— even singular—cattle ranches offered in the United States today. Encompassing 290,100 deeded acres, it probably represents the only opportunity to purchase nearly 300,000 acres of North America land in one stroke for the balance of this century. The Bell is part of a 656,000-acre 1824 Mexican land grant, and was purchased by William N. Lane—a vigorous Chicago businessman—between 1974 and 1978.

D L O

This remarkable holding is the largest working cattle ranch available in the United States today

and offers great privacy and the unbridled operational freedom and personal enjoyment found only within an empire encompassing 453 square miles of deeded land. The Bell possesses strong resources for successful entrance or expansion in the cattle business, including 290,100 blocked-up deeded acres (no federal or state land); 14 to 15 inches annual precipitation and elevation from 4,300 to 5,600 feet; a broad spectrum of strong grasses provide yearround forage; 116 wells and windmills plus 90 miles of pipeline and 206 stock tanks; superb cattle-handling facilities at 14 locations and good fencing;

S

a carrying capacity for 5,000 animal units (calf weights at 500 pounds); six cow camps, each with good homes; headquarters listed on National Register of Historic Places in 1974; 10,000-square-foot hacienda with eight bedrooms and classic estancia architecture; a 8,000-foot maintained dirt airfield with hangar and fuel storage; 18 miles of Conchas Lake frontage with a comfortable 2,800-square-foot guesthouse; trophy antelope and turkey hunting; and a variety of wildlife, including mule deer, Barbary sheep, black bear, cougar, quail, dove and some elk. The Bell is a first-rate cattle ranch and world-class investment offering its next owner a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage in one of America’s important industries. It also represents an amazing opportunity for immediate, successful expansion by existing large beef producers. A large part of the bargain will be enjoyment of a wonderful authentic western lifestyle along with escape from the pressures of success into an inspiring private world of timeless natural grandeur. Because of The Bell’s extraordinary historical values and unsullied landscapes, consideration of conservation easements will hold appeal for some. Previously, The Bell was offered at $440 per acre. Recognizing current global economic conditions, it has been discounted 35% to $286 an acre – $83,000,000 – including all seller-owned mineral rights. Buyers’ brokers are welcome to enquire.

Clark’s Canyon Ranch Wyoming v Park County v Cody

C

Clark’s Canyon Ranch rests in the very private and historical area of Wyoming’s northwest corner, along the front of the rugged and steep Beartooth Mountains. Approximately 26 miles northwest of Cody, 40 miles from Red Lodge, Montana (a popular ski resort) and 70 miles west of Yellowstone National Park’s northeast entrance on the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, the ranch is accessed by a county-maintained gravel road via State Highway 120. The 3,200 total acres consist of 1,070 deeded, 1,500 BLM lease and 640 State of Wyoming lease acres. There are 365 irrigated and 134 sub-irrigated acres. Historically producing alfalfa hay, the 365 irrigated acres are currently used for grazing and produce native grass. A wildlife refuge with native range grasses, the sub-irrigated acreage provides incredible wildlife habitat. The majority of the BLM lease adjoins approximately three miles of the Clark’s Fork River along the Beartooth Front and is part of the critical elk winter/parturition range where over 4,000 elk reside. The picturesque State of Wyoming section lies at the canyon mouth of the Clark’s Fork River and forms the west boundary of the ranch. The Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River flows through Clark’s Fork Canyon and meanders along the northern border of the ranch. John Colter, the first Englishman to visit Yellowstone, spent the winter of 1806–07 in a cave in the Clark’s Fork Canyon after leaving the Lewis and Clark expedition. Along the Clark’s Fork River, Native American sites and migration routes are obvious with numerous teepee rings. In fall of 1877, the Nez Pierce Indians, led by Chief Joseph, evaded the U.S. Army. While attempting their famous escape, they passed through the immediate ranch area. Improvements are designed to complement a horse and cattle ranch operation and provide comfortable amenities for recreational enthusiasts. The custom home has an open floor plan with high ceilings and large windows, allowing spectacular Beartooth Mountain and Clark’s Fork Canyon views. Multiple outbuildings include a horse barn with eight box stalls, tack room, indoor water and hay storage. The Clark Canyon Ranch is an outdoor sportsman’s retreat with unlimited opportunities. Hunting enthusiasts will find resident herds of elk, mule deer, whitetail deer and antelope. Moose occasionally frequent the river and creeks. Bighorn sheep and mountain goat reside near the canyon. This area is only one of two places in Wyoming where mountain goats are found and is considered by many to be a premier wildlife viewing location. The Clark’s Fork River on the ranch and over 950 lakes on the adjacent Beartooth Plateau in the national forest offer exceptional fishing for Yellowstone cutthroats and mountain white fish. The ranch and surrounding public lands offer horseback riding, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, ATV riding, backpacking, boating, whitewater rafting and kayaking. Trails on the Beartooth Plateau and in Shoshone National Forest offer outdoor enthusiasts the chance to experience miles of untamed country. Winter recreation includes snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice fishing and ice climbing. $6,420,000.

Nestled in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains, Atwood Ranch provides a perfect setting where broodmares and foals enjoy life on 2,500 acres of native grasslands in the oak-studded, rolling hills of Northern California. Captivating views of snowcapped Mount Shasta, Mount Lassen, the Sierras and the Sacramento Valley create the backdrop for this premier breeding and training facility. The ranch is fully committed to its principles of breeding, raising and nurturing the finest Quarter Horses, bred for competition in cutting, cattle working events and reining, as well as recreational performance. The ranch specializes in extensive young horse development and educational programs, including the Parelli Pre-School Training program, but is equally suited for a first-class performance horse training operation or large-scale breeding establishment. Central to the success of the ranch programs are its impressive quality facilities; the large, freestanding 140' by 250' barn includes many amenities for the trainer and breeder with large office space, breeding shed with stocks and vet lab, tack and wash bays and foaling and stallion stalls. In addition, a 120' by 100' clear span riding arena, a 200' round training arena, 24-stall training barn, hay barn and three hot walkers accommodate most every facet of horse development necessary to this highly effective and successful breeding and training facility. Ranch fields are divided into many pastures, some with hundreds of acres, some smaller. Others are set up for special use like weaning, geriatrics or rehabilitation. Top-quality fences are built with woven wire, using steel pipe for brace posts and gates. Water is pumped from a 2,500 gpm well and circulated to the barns and most fields by miles of buried pipeline. The largest fields have big reservoirs with year-round water. Some pasture is leased to cattle operations. For additional details and photos, visit VanCleveRanches.com.
