What is there to do?

Yee haw, it's time to channel that inner cowboy or cowgirl now we're headed out into the stunning Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado. Yep, we're off on an adventure with Academy Riding Stables!

The whole family can enjoy some Colorado horseback riding, guided by real cowboys. It's a true wild west experience! Whichever experience you choose, you guide will point out some of the interesting red rock formations of the Garden of the Gods Park including; the Sleeping Giant, Snakehead Rock, Kissing Camels and SiameseTwins.

There are a number of rides you can select for your nature filled experience. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced horse back rider, Academy Riding Stables has a horse suited to your abilities.

Throughout the year, you can enjoy one or two hour rides. During the summer months, you can enjoy an even longer 3 hour ride.  This takes you around the outer edges of the stunning 1400 acre park.

For those little ones aged 2 to 7 years, they can enjoy their own horse experience with the Colorado pony rides. These last around 15 minutes and they are a great introduction to the world of horse back riding.

For those special occasions, hire their hay wagon, surreys or the stage coach and invite your friends!
