"WOW!" "Incredible!" "Awesome!" are just some of the more common words we hear at Academy Riding Stables. From the oldest to youngest, the excitement we see from returning riders shows this is an experience you don’t want to miss. We look forward to meeting you and hearing your thoughts as you return from your own awesome ride!
Your adventure begins at our stables 45 minutes prior to ride time, where you are matched with a horse that will carry you on either a one- or two-hour ride. Whether you’re an experienced rider or just a beginner, our trained cowboys have the knowledge and skill to insure your ride is the best it can be.
As you wind along the scenic trails of historical Garden of the Gods, your eyes will feast on the natural beauty that inspired one of America’s most revered and timeless anthems, “America The Beautiful.”
Your adventure awaits at Academy Riding Stables. So come on over and experience Colorado the way they did over 100 years ago—on horseback!
Not to be left out, kids 2-7 years old can experience the fun of riding a pony. Our wranglers lead your young ones on a discovery tour of our stables for fifteen minutes. Your kids will delight in riding a real horse, seeing other friendly horses in stalls, learning about feeding and so much more. We invite parents to walk along side your mounted son or daughter. Together, you'll enjoy a spectacular mountain view from our porch. When you leave Academey Riding Stables, you'll take a complimentary 5x7 photo of your child on the horse, looking super cute sporting their ARS provided riding helmet. Ages 2-7. Includes 5x7 photo.
