Skyline Ranches $$-$$$$|
John Henline -
Skyline Ranches is located just west of Omaha in the Elkhorn area.
Around 1960, a landowner by the name of Slim Thornton began to develop a different kind of residential community.
On the outskirts of the big city (Omaha) and all by itself in the country, Slim created a Horse Community called
Skyline Ranches. His vision was to build a neighborhood of homes but not forget where it was being built; in the
country! He centered his theme of a “community of horse owners” and laid out lots large enough to support such an
animal. A trail systems would join each of the residents to one central Equine based park.
There are 235 estate lots in this Horse Community that range in size from 1 to 5 acres. At Skyline Corral (formerly
lot 86) horse owners have at their disposal a rodeo arena complete with shutes and stock pen, a 4H arena with
observation tower and stands, a dressage course and sliding track.
With a trail systems that touches every property in the neighborhood, residents have at their disposal over 150
acres of common land to walk, ride, ski and snowmobile from their own back door.
