Here in Colorado…now what? (Equestrians on the Front Range and Western Slope)Posted by TheHomeCartTeam on Friday, May 25th, 2012 at 1:31pm.
Blue skies, wide-open spaces and plenty of sunshine, for these reasons and so many more, hundreds of horse-loving individuals flock to Colorado each year. If you’ve made the decision to call Colorado home, you may be asking yourself, now what? If you’re an equestrian living in the Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder or any one of the mountain communities on the Western Slope, you’re in luck. With a plethora of riding opportunities, horse shows and a variety of horse communities, equestrians all over the Front Range and Western Slope are happy to call Colorado home.
While Western style was made popular here in the West, Colorado equestrians can be seen enjoying Hunt Seat, Dressage and Saddle Seat disciplines. From the in-town stables in Cherry Creek Park to the trail rides amongst the Garden of the Gods, Colorado offers something for every type of rider. From Arvada to Vail and everywhere in between almost every community in the Front Range and Western Slope have barns, ranches and riding opportunities for novices to veterans. And with over 300 days of sunshine, every day in Colorado is a great day to go riding.
When not in the saddle, you may find yourself at one of the many horse shows hosted here. The National Western Stock show starts the year off with a bang in January and features all breeds including American Paint, Draft Horses and Quarter horses. The Region 8 Arabian Championship, which celebrates those beautiful Arabians each June, is not to be missed. And every November the Show for Champions features Hanoverian, Sport, Thoroughbreds, Trakehner and Warmbloods. With so many fantastic shows, featuring so many different breeds and riding styles, a horse enthusiast is never bored in Colorado.
From Arvada to Sedalia, Colorado is full of active horse communities. Some of the closer-in communities such as Cherry Hills Village offer all the convenient amenities of city living but at the same time provide enough room for your horse(s) to graze and for you to ride. If you prefer a more secluded community and more room to spread out, Larkspur may be just what you need. And of course we can’t forget Colorado’s majestic mountain communities. From Pike’s Peak to Summit County, there are so many desirable horse communities you’d be proud to call home.
Colorado is known worldwide for it’s western history and traditions. And while much has changed in the state from those Wild West days, Colorado is still the place to be for equestrians.
