Moon Horse Ranch is a little ranch south of Santa Fe, home to painter Stella Maria Baer, designer Seth Reese, their three children, Wyeth, Whitman, and Winona, two appaloosas named Sun and Moon and Stars, and two curly goats.
Our vision for Moon Horse Ranch is a place where people connect more deeply with the land, one another, and themselves. Through workshops in art, architecture, and shepherding we offer tangible ways to learn practices that honor and deepen our relationship with the land.
Moon Horse Ranch is on ten acres, surrounded by forty acres of high mountain desert grasslands, with juniper, prickly pears, cholla, chamisa, and yucca and views of the Sangre de Cristo and Ortiz Mountains. These desert grasslands are home to black tail jack rabbits, mountain bluebirds, coyotes, ravens, and doves.
The land south of Santa Fe is on the unceded ancestral lands of the Tewa people, who live in this region to this day. We support local Indigenous communities, including Tewa Women United
and Indigenous Women Rising
, and support the rematriation of all lands to their original peoples. You can learn more about Tewa history and culture at the Poeh Cultural Center
. You can learn more about whose land you live on at native-land.ca
We seek to honor the land where we live through shepherding goats and horses, and providing a place where others can learn to create art and dwellings with earth and mineral materials and connect more deeply with the land and sky.
