Pictured above is our Events Building with 80’ flagpole.  The Events Building is 2,500 Square Foot, extra large indoor gathering area with 18 foot high interior.   Used for Wedding Receptions, On-site Conferences, Parties, Workshop Staging Area, and other group events.  This building can easily accommodate your large group.  In 2012 we hosted a wedding reception with around 100 people.  Go to the Wedding Page for a picture of the Events Building for this reception.

Here is a picture of one of our resident Road Runners walking around on the wall in front of our main house.  We have an abundance of birds and other wildlife making their home in and around Painted Pony. 

The PPR compound consists of Main House, Two Guests Houses, Events Building, Cabin, Swimming Pool and Six RV Pads situated on  756 beautiful acres in the New Mexico High Plaines.  We offer privacy, spectacular Southwest experience and plenty of room to stretch out.

The 20' x 35' pool and hot tub areas are surrounded by landscaping adjacent to the courtyard, providing privacy and seclusion.  The pool area is shielded from the wind by screens that also provide extra privacy.  Our heated pool is fully furnished with luxurious tables, chairs, lounges and Cabana area with bar stools and table.  Pool is available year round. 

The Swimming Pool is geothermal and solar heated.  PPR is an Eco Friendly Resort using natural heat from a geothermal irrigation well augmented by solar heat.  On FAQ you will find a description of our heating system and temperature ranges for different seasons.

From the road leading to PPR you are looking across the property to the estate buildings with the Chiricahua mountains in the background.  This is an awesome setting and a peaceful, spiritually  renewing environment!
