Whether you are an experienced horse back rider or just a beginner, Academy Riding Stables has a horse suited to your abilities with Colorado guided horse back riding in the Garden of the Gods Park. One and two hour horse back rides are available throughout the summer months and after Labor Day through Thursday before Memmorial Weekend you can enjoy a perimeter ride (approx. 3 hrs.) around the outer edges of this beautiful 1400 acre park. We also offer Colorado pony rides for kids ages 2-7. They are approximately 15 minutes long. The stables are open year around except on Thanksgiving and Christmas days.
