Horse Property for Sale in Sedona & the Verde Valley
The Verde Valley's two principal communities, Sedona and Cottonwood, are held together by Route 89A. Located approximately sixteen miles apart, they are an easy drive on a relatively level four-lane highway.
Sedona, the smaller more boutique-like of the two, offers a more sophisticated mix of hotels, restaurants, night clubs, and shops, as well as a six-screen cinema complex. Cottonwood, on the other hand, has the Verde Valley Medical Center, a Super Wal-Mart, a Home Depot, and an array of car dealerships. If you put the two together, they would contain most of the elements we associate with a medium-sized urban city.
But that is what is deceptive about that stretch of 89A. What you don't realize are the many turn-offs, including those inside Sedona's city limits and Cottonwood city limits, that still retain hidden vestiges of the old rural West. And there are none more enduring than Arizona's revered four-legged icon
. . . the horse!
As you can tell from the picture, I love horses! I have ever since I was a little girl growing up in Washington state. I now have time only for an occasional ride. However, many of my clients and friends own horse properties and visiting them is always a joy and pleasure.
If you are a horse lover and interested in looking for horse property in the Sedona area that is for sale, I will be happy to show you around and let you see what our market has to offer.
If you are interested in finding a stable where you can keep a horse separate from your living space, I can help you with that too. If you are intrigued by the idea of riding a horse through some of the most spectacular scenery in America, there are numerous trails for you to choose from.
And if you have never been on a horse, don't worry, here are some fun tips to wet your appetite. The primary key to working with a horse is communication. Not with "Gideeup" or "Whoa", but primarily using your balance and body position, along with the bit and reins. Anything you can do to increase your feel for the horse's movements and your own balance will make you a better rider. And remember, a horse will generally end up behaving toward you the way you behave toward it. Keep yourself calm, attentive and self-disciplined and you will find yourself riding a gentle, attentive and well-behaved horse!
As Roy Rogers used to say, "Happy trails and keep smiling."
