One of the facilities at Chalk Hill Ranch

One of the Barns at Chalk Hill Ranch, Healdsburg

Chanslor Wildlife has owned and operated equestrian properties involving trail riding, boarding, training for over 25 years and the principals have been involved in managing agricultural property for over 40 years.  We have had as few as 6 and as many as 70 horses under our custody and care.  As consultants, we have been involved in the sale of many equestrian properties in Sonoma County and the needs of buyers varies substantially based on their type of equestrian activity – ranging from buying a property as a business to being a participant in pleasure riding, dressage, training,

Occasionally we are involved in a property that offers options that address common needs across a wide spectrum of buyers.  Such a property is The Hilliard Estate in Healdsburg, CA.  The 40.5+/- acre property has paddock facilities if an owner wants to maintain horses on the property.  The adjacent property is The Chalk Hill Ranch which offers boarding and training facilities as well as access to approximately 300 acres of vineyards, riding trails and ponds.

One of the challenges for owners of a ranch property that is a primary or secondary residence is who can provide professional care for horses when the owner is out of town.  Additionally, access to trails and facilities that are maintained.  In the case of The Hilliard Estate arrangements can be made for horse care to be provided either on the property or at adjoining Chalk Hill Ranch.

On-line tours of the property are available at

Please contact Charlene Schnall, Broker Associate, Healdsburg Sotheby’s International Real Estate for an appointment to visit the The Hilliard Estate at (707) 483-3192/
