rodeoThe Estancia Valley Rodeo is part of the rich heritage of the region.

Located in central New Mexico, the Estancia Valley spans Torrance and Southern Santa Fe Counties, and is home to several incorporated communities, including Edgewood, Estancia, Moriarty, and Mountainair.  Only a short distance to Albuquerque via Interstate 40, the Estancia Valley has become an attractive option for those seeking larger rural properties while still desiring the amenities associated with a metropolitan area.

The valley's close proximity to the state's largest and fastest-growing metropolitan area, combined with an excellent highway system, attractive real estate prices, low tax rates, widespread broadband internet service, and a variety of settings, make the valley a prime location for enterprises of all kinds.  Growth in the area has attracted manufacturers, technology enterprises, retail establishments, restaurants, financial institutions, national supermarket and drugstore chains, consulting firms, and other ventures to the valley.

The valley also offers many recreational opportunities, from hiking, horseback riding, and skiing in the nearby Manzano and Sandia Mountains, to soaring and general aviation, making the valley an attractive place to live, work, and play.
