Bucking Horse is designed around fulfilling the hunger for community. Visitors and homeowners will be able to discover a community of opportunities nestled in a safe environment. Local vendors will have the chance to share their products and create relationships with those visiting the village, while community gardens and gathering places will encourage homeowners not only to interact but to bond with their neighbors. A trail system, community gardens, a working farm as well as a garden for the farm-to-fork restaurant, are all part of the proposed master plan to protect our land. A variety of homes will be offered within the community including single family and townhome residences.
The theme of the project is based upon the existing 128-year-old Johnson Farm and Jessup Farm buildings which will be rehabilitated in an effort to protect the history and enhance the overall ambiance of the project. Bucking Horse is designed around maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The entire project is designed around trail systems that will encourage outdoor exercise. "Healthy" retailers, within the Jessup Farm Artisan Village, including a proposed bicycle shop, yoga studio, and fresh local produce along with a clean and safe environment will promote quality of life and health.
The community gardens and farm-to-fork restaurant will teach today's kids how a seed in the ground becomes the food on their plate. Not only will the project allow us to teach society where their food comes from, the children of today will learn how nature can provide endless opportunities for fun and learning. Whether it's building a treehouse, learning about care of the farm animals, or growing vegetables, the project will reflect how plants, animals, and people can live and coexist.
Construction is Moving Along!
Site development construction continues and we've started construction on Block 1 of the Townhomes. The Neighborhood Pool and Pool House will start construction soon, and a new Bucking Horse entry sign at Timberline Road and Nancy Gray Avenue will be constructed soon as well. Here's a picture of Donald R. Horton (yes, that "D.R.Horton") visiting the Bucking Horse site on May 23rd. D.R. Horton is one of the builders for the Single Family Residences...also soon to be under construction.

Bucking Horse "Ponied" Its First Annual Float in the St. Patrick's Day Parade
The St. Patrick's Day Parade is a local Fort Collins highlight, with thousands coming to Old Town to watch the parade and revelling in the all-day festivities. We built our float this year, literally from the ground up, and had many people active in the project ride along. We even had goats, chickens, a bunny and pony - oh my! Next year we hope to have the Bucking Horse residents continue the parade float tradition. Thanks to everyone who turned out!
Bucking Horse Has Broken Ground!
We officially broke ground at Bucking Horse on October 24, 2012. Even though it was a cold and rainy afternoon, we appreciate that so many of the design team, consultants, City staff, residents and others involved with this great project could be a part of the kick-off to construction. Construction will start with the Townhomes at Bucking Horse and general site development.
