Ride Into Luxury: $15 Million Equestrian Farm Hits the Market in ConnecticutIngrid
Equestrian enthusiasts, take note! A stunning equestrian farm located in Newtown, Connecticut, has recently hit the market for a whopping $15 million.
RedGate Farm, listed through Sotheby’s International Realty, boasts more than 50 acres of land, complete with paddocks, ponds, barns with 60 stalls, an indoor riding ring, and horse treadmills.
The main house, located at 7 Equestrian Ridge, totals nearly 9,000 square feet and sits atop a hill that overlooks the lush fields below. The property was originally purchased by Bruce and Kimberly Travis more than two decades ago, who invested millions into turning the existing riding farm into a top-notch equestrian center and boarding operation.
Today, RedGate Farm is home to highly regarded trainers such as Leslie Burr Howard, who was a member of the gold-medal U.S. equestrian team at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.
Connecticut has no shortage of equestrian properties, with nearly 160 stables in the state that offer training for riders and horses. However, RedGate Farm is undoubtedly among the most luxurious and well-appointed, placing it among the three-dozen priciest equestrian properties in the nation.
Notably, Lost Acre Farm in Warren, Connecticut, is also listed for $16 million, making it the state’s priciest equestrian property. Recent years have seen several other high-profile equestrian properties change hands in Connecticut. Ridgefield’s Double H Farm was sold for an impressive $24 million last month, marking the top sale in Connecticut to date in 2023.

Meanwhile, in February, a horse farm located on Brushy Hill Road in Newtown sold for $2.4 million, representing the town’s biggest real estate transaction of the past few years.
Despite these impressive sales figures, it’s worth noting that some equestrian properties have struggled to fetch their asking prices. For instance, the Newtown horse farm that sold in February was listed for sale in 2021 for twice the amount it ultimately sold for.
If you’re on the market for a truly exceptional equestrian property, RedGate Farm is undoubtedly worth considering. It offers the perfect blend of luxury, functionality, and natural beauty, making it a dream come true for horse lovers everywhere.
And with such a prime location in Connecticut, it’s sure to attract plenty of attention from buyers who are eager to own a piece of the state’s vibrant equestrian culture.
