Wild Horse Mesa
Wild Horse Mesa is a special place, where “the Great Outdoors” truly comes to life. Located in the sunny high desert of the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado, Wild Horse Mesa takes its name from the bands of wild horses that roam the private lands to this day. These mustangs are descendants of the horses brought to North America by the Spanish Conquistadors as they explored the great western territories. Properties in Wild Horse Mesa are blessed with stunning views in all directions of the San Juan, La Garita, and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges.
Inhabited by native Americans for over 10,000 years, the area is now home to farmers and ranchers whose families have been there for generations. Local farms grow such crops as potatoes, wheat, beans, carrots, and lettuce, as well as raising cattle, sheep, and goats. Besides horses, wildlife in the Mesa also includes an abundant supply of deer, elk, antelope, eagles, black bears, and bighorn sheep.
Located about 12 miles south of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado, Wild Horse Mesa is steeped in history, with the Old Spanish Trail running along the east side of Wild Horse Mesa, and even old legends of the mesa being haunted. Also on the eastern border is the Sanchez Reservoir, a state wildlife area with a 4 mile long, 2,000 Acre lake offering top-notch fishing for pike, trout, and catfish, as well as some great bird-watching of geese, loons, swallows, and many more. Wild Horse Mesa is remote enough to give you all the fresh air, privacy, and independence you desire, but close enough to civilization to allow you to access services you need.
