Oregon Land provides rich and fertile soil for your horses and other equine friends. It is ideal for growing grass and other agricultural products, such apples and potatoes.

The equestrian community in Oregon is quite large and diverse in disciplines and breeds. The price of land is still affordable, especially for those relocating from California. Central Oregon enjoys as many as 300 days of sunshine per year, and Ashland in southern Oregon features the Tony-Award winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Oregon is home to natural wonders such as Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America, and Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States. It is world renowned for its beautiful blue waters.

 Oregon is one of only five states with no sales tax. Overall, Oregon has a highly diverse agricultural industry. Farms and ranches in Oregon produce more than 250 commodities, from wheat and cattle to grasses and grass seed, a variety of berries including grapes, many types of vegetables, and of course, Christmas trees. Oregon ranches and farms tend to use conservation-minded ranching practices, and a fair share are engaged in sustainable agriculture. Many Oregon ranches for sale are family owned operations. Cattle ranches often acquire additional grazing leases of BLM lands (Bureau of Land Management), like in other states like California and New Mexico, since a good portion of Oregon land is owned by the federal government and managed by this department.

Oregon's wild horses have found protection on certain Oregon ranches that have devoted their efforts to becoming wild horse sanctuaries. The Kiger Mustang which is now actually an established breed, was originally discovered in a remote area of Beatty's Butte in southeast Oregon, and such herds can now be found throughout Oregon. A Kiger Mustang was used as the model for the animated feature film, Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron from Dream Works Pictures.

Buyers will often find that Oregon land for sale and Oregon ranches for sale have horse breeding and training as their focus.
Oregon has a great variety in climate, topography, and agricultural conditions. While many out-of-staters associate Oregon with rain, there are areas in eastern Oregon that get no more than 12 inches of rain each year.
Southeastern and central Oregon land produces primarily hay and cattle. Central Oregon land also grows a wide range of crops, including vegetable seeds and grains. Northeastern Oregon land produces wheat and livestock as well as various fruits, such as cherries, apples, and pears. Wine appellations in Oregon can be found in western and northern Oregon. The demand for Oregon land for sale, Oregon ranches for sale, Oregon horse property and farms, and rural homes in Oregon has soared during the last 10 years. The market has been fueled by pricey California, Oregon's neighbor to the south, from which ranchers, farmers, horse breeders and trainers have moved to Oregon to increase the size of their acreage holding and thereby expand and grow their business. A land of great beauty and great diversity, Oregon offers many opportunities for those who follow the trail that leads them there!
Below is a list of Oregon properties

CENTRAL OREGON
Central Oregon is known to be horse-friendly, and by some estimates has one of the highest rates of horse ownership in Oregon. Many smaller properties of only a few acres have barns or corrals. Larger ranch-type properties may include multiple paddocks and arenas, and a few have indoor facilities. A key advantage to having a horse in the Sisters area is easy access to hundreds of thousands of acres of BLM and Forest Service lands
