Ladder Ranch

The Ladder Ranch, Caballo, NM, United States



Ted Turner Expeditions’ Ladder Ranch New Mexico possesses a rich, colorful history that begins long before the ranch was one of America’s most exclusive destinations. Archeologists have discovered that prehistoric people called “Mimbres,” which means “willow” in Spanish, lived in this area leading up to and following the Classic Mimbres period (1000-1130 CE). Their presence on the ranch is evidenced by what is left of their houses, pottery, and petroglyph-pictograph “rock art,” which is still present on Ladder Ranch today. Later, the area was occupied by the Chiricahua Apache tribe, home to Victorio, the famous Warm Spring Apache leader. Victorio fought U.S. Calvary troops during the “Apache Wars,” and at least two significant battles were fought on land that is now Ladder Ranch.
