Would like some info on area's to retire with a couple of hores or mules for trail riding. Would like to keep our equines at home, mobile with some land or small house. It would be great to be able to ride out right from home. Unfortunately not a lot of money to spend. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

you can find some inexpensive land still in Tonapah. It is a little remote, but not too bad as far as shopping. Buckeye may still have some horse properties, but I know Peoria and north Phoenix are still spendy.

Tell folks how much is "not a lot" since that means different things to different people!

Yes $ amount makes a big difference to what you want. More requirements from you helps since there are 100's of horse areas all over AZ.

Definitely possible, Bezbud.

No clue on the price but not uncommon to see horses in the outskirts of Tucson and frequently riding in the Rillito Riverbed.

You can scoop up 5 acres of land further west of Tonopah for about $50,000. Good flat land, it may have a wash or 2 running through it though. Great trail riding out that way, you will find a lot of horse property out there.

You can find places all over AZ where you can have horses/mules. There is a magazine that comes out monthly. Have a look at it. www.bridleandbit.com
Lots of info in there relating to AZ and horses etc. You can read it on line. I've found horse property listed in Bridle and Bit a bit pricey for my pocketbook, but you can get ideas of areas and real estate agents, etc.

Tonopah is about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix. Closest shopping would be in Buckeye about 15-20 miles away, also feed stores will be a short drive from Tonopah although there were one/two in the area I used to frequent when I lived out there.

Look in Goodyear (mobile homes w/horse property), Avondale south of I-10, Laveen, parts of Surprise (northwest of US 60), Buckeye/Rainbow Valley area, etc. Good riding right from the house to mountain parks and BLM land.

Anything else you need to know about horses, riding areas, etc. You can DM me and I'll see what I can do for you. Good luck.
