Bring Your Horses

Bridlegate Ranch is a very horse friendly community, one horse is permitted per 2 acres and the covenants allow you to build a barn before a house! Property owners can use all community maintained facilities free of charge. This includes a large 100' x 200' out door arena, 6 outdoor padlocks and 2 box stalls. From the riding arena you can access a 2.5 mile long trail that is dedicated to horse riding and walking as well as miles of private roads with riding easements on both sides. Horses are also permitted in the 50 acre river park.

Located only 10 miles form the Hill Country State Natural Area with 5400 acres and 40 miles of trails designated for walking, bicycles, and horse back riding.

Secure Gated Community

At Bridlegate, privacy is a top priority. All entrances are gated and monitored by surveillance cameras night and day. Community members are provided gate remotes and codes obtained through the HOA.

Guest Facilities

Two historic facilities dedicated for private hotel accommodations to serve owners and their guest. Pick from an entire ranch house consisting of 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, or one of the 7 other units available.

Bridlegate Ranch is comprised of the former ranch of Dr. Palmaz-Schatz’s, inventor of the heart stent and the former Hill Country vacation destination Abundare River Ranch Resort. The ranch preserved the buildings and guest suites from both these Hill Country icons for property owners to continue to enjoy.

Stay the weekend with your friends and family at Dr. Palmaz-Schatz’s 5100sqft ranch house or one of his guest houses. Only property owners and their guests have access to these wonderful complexes and accommodations for owners start at $50/night for these amazing quarters (which are far superior to local accommodations).
