Rivervale Farm, nestled along the banks of the Belle Fourche River, is a one-of-a-kind 190± deeded acre ranch featuring outstanding improvements, productive irrigated meadows, wildlife, scenery and excellent fishing on nearly one mile of fish-filled water. The lush river bottom is lined with mature cottonwood trees and the balance of the land is in irrigated meadows and upland pasture, together attracting a variety of wildlife.
The properties facilities are specifically designed to support equestrian activities as well as sustainable haying operations. From this ranch’s convenient location at the doorstep of Black Hills National Forest, the many amenities of The Black Hills as well as the regional airport are all within an hour. The property centerpiece is the 8400 square foot indoor riding arena with sand/wood chip footing with attached 34′ X 48′ 6 Preifert stall barn with tack room and grooming stall. The grounds are thoughtfully divided with high-end fencing and designed to modern horse management standards.
