Caballos de las Estrellas includes over 1000 acres with trails to ride, hike, or bike on peaceful private roads. Caballos surrounds another 160 acres of land locked BLM and much of Caballos borders BLM and state land. Our climate is mild, the area has a very low population, clean air, good aquifer, and magnificent natural surroundings. Caballos is well established and debt free.

Caballos is made up of fully independent people who work together to form an Intelligent Living Community. We are interested in people who want to build an alternative community free of the globalist Ponzi Scheme of endless work/consumption/debt/government dependence. The core belief is giving back to nature in equal measure to what we take from nature. A community were life is lived beautifully with amenities, adventures and events. A community were people can form individual, group, or community owned businesses to generate their own income and participate to the degree they need to or desire to, putting them in charge of their own lives. Our unique approach allows each person to pursue their personal dreams while living in a strong ‘have your back’ community. We are not a commune. We value the individual journey and creativity.
We are looking for people with a serious commitment to continuing to build Caballos and to creating a new reality. Caballos is drug free (legal drugs which are not abused are accepted). We believe in working with nature to build a beautiful world, not in escaping life through the abuse of drugs.
Now you can be part of Caballos if you have a RV. 4 large pet friendly sites available. 2 full utility (electric, water, septic) 2 eco sites (water only for alternative systems). The sites are large, landscaped, pet friendly. have a picnic table, metal fire pit, raised beds, bird bath, wind chimes, shared bird feeders. Your rent includes use of the growing list of all Caballos amenities including the Equestrian Center. We have a budget friendly shelter cabin for rent with sink and toilet, outdoor shower, bring your own camping gear and enjoy the views from the porch, better than a tent, pet friendly of course. A cottage for longer term rentals. Fully furnished guest cabins with small kitchen area and full bath for rent, short or long term. Cabins available for purchase. A tipi if you want the full primitive experience, some very basic furnishings, water available on the grounds and you must provide a portable compost toilet.
We still have a few lots for sale. Caballos is a closed community. You own a lot or rent a RV site or cabin to become part of Caballos. You are free to visit and stay as long as you like to see if Caballos is a good fit for you.
Library started with over 600 books and over 600 DVDs and growing, plus games. We have a gym, 5 person spa, and really nice free range chicken and duck area for free eggs for residents. A free laundry, labyrinth, community garden for free produce if you participate. In 2020 we added two more eco sites for yurt/tent camping and an area for the cabins. Our project for 2021 is a new expanded library with pool table. We practice food foresting in our landscaping.
How things work at Caballos.
The 80 acres of community grounds will include the amenities, shared income projects, and part of the wildlife habitat enhancement project. Projects are in various stages of completion and nothing is posted on the website until finished or announced until paid for or under construction. The 38 acres of the commercial section will offer an opportunity for free enterprise for individual, group or community owned businesses. Private lots are your sanctuary space to enjoy nature with your animals. If you decide to leave Caballos you are free to sell your lot and start your new life with some financial security. Yes, we are very different but it is working. We have a stable long term community with almost no turn-over or burn-out. We have no chore lists, work schedule, hours required, or community meals.
Sustainability and Self-Sufficiency:
Caballos is a wildlife sanctuary. Our goal is working with nature with an emphasis on giving back in equal measure to what we consume along with sustainability and self-sufficiency within the community. Caballos de las Estrellas is always working toward a harmonious relationship with our environment from providing eco friendly innovation, to wildlife habitat enhancement, to education and events. No matter how much we ‘lower our footprint’, it simply can not keep up with the exploding human population, so we have taken a different approach.
“Even if each and everyone of us contributes in an almost imperceptible way, 7.6 billion and rising is a tremendous number that our minds can’t even begin to conceptualize, with all of those trivial impacts amounting to profound transformations.”
João L.R. Abegão, Ecologist specializing in Environmental Health.
“What ‘sustainability’ means has also been seen through the lens of Man’s needs. A society is not truly sustainable if it brings on extinction of other Earthlings or if it tames its lands and waters” “Per capita sprawl comes from bigger homes and lots, and is tweaked by tax, zoning, and transportation policies, while population sprawl comes from more bodies. Looked at overall, the two were nearly even for how much sprawl they drove, but population growth came out somewhat higher.” “Man Swarm” by Dave Foreman
We are an animal friendly community at a time when many people who live with animals are finding themselves faced with oppressive restrictions and less space designated for large animals every year. There is no charge for keeping horses and some livestock at the equestrian center but you can also keep them on your own lot. We have members that work in animal rescue and our community is dedicated to giving back to the earth.
For years I have watched people put a great deal of effort into designing beautiful livable and environmentally sound concept communities, but over the years few have materialized and life goes on as usual. It takes a great deal of money and commitment to move from start up to something solid and established. Most dreams and projects rarely get off the ground. We are left with government solutions and history proves that the nature of government is and has always been parasitic and self-serving with a small disconnected privileged elite class at the top. Marxist or Neocon, the results have been the same worldwide, no matter how utopian the dream they are pitching. Elites and serfs, nowhere to run, no personal control. I believe real change will only come from the ground up within a growing group of small communities, each with their own vision. These communities remain the wisest places to test and refine concepts. Caballos is one of those communities and we welcome you to see if our vision works for you.
