Horseback Riding Adventures

Whether you’re an experienced rider or 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 Pioneers did over 100 years ago—on horseback!

Don't Forget the Kiddos: Pony Riding

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 10 to 15 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!

As an added bonus you'll receive a complimentary 5x7 photo of your youngin' on the horse. And don't worry we'll be sure to provide them with a helmet and guide them every step of the way.
