Water is plentiful on the ranch, including the seasonal flow of Iron Gulch, the spring-fed Crowfoot Creek and three windmills, four wells and ten stock ponds. The magnificent setting of the ranch is complemented by equally magnificent improvements.

The impressive Venue was designed by Michael Barber Architecture, an award-winning Denver firm, and is in the Plains Victorian style. Its 14,000-square feet include an impressive Great Room with gas fireplace, complete bridal suite, formal buffet room, ballroom, gourmet kitchen, and an eight-sided, two-story breakfast nook. This remarkable Venue also includes a large grooms’ quarters with wet bar, full guest suite and two additional guest bedrooms, each with a separate bath.

First-rate equestrian facilities put Flying Horse Ranch into a league of its own. A 245x160-foot indoor riding arena is the centerpiece of the Flying Horse Ranch’s equestrian improvements.

Completed in 2004, it includes a dirt/sand surface, elevated announcer’s booth with sound system, natural gas heaters, LED lighting and abundant windows for natural lighting. Connected to the riding arena is a 120x60-foot extension housing offices, restrooms, kitchen and an auction/sale ring. This facility is tailor-made for horse events or sales in first-class fashion.

Additional horse facilities include a training round pen and outdoor roping arena. The ranch is also well-equipped to handle cattle, with a cow barn that includes a vet room and show area. A hay barn, grain shed and equipment shed completes the long list of outstanding improvements on the ranch.
