Staff is taking precautions to contain the virus, but we are asking residents to not touch the horses at the Equestrian Center at this time.

    During the ranch’s heyday, a number of well-known Colorado natives frequented Ken Caryl, including the notorious Civil War butcher John Chivington. Another regular was Ute chief Colorow, whose tribe members were known as pesky beggars to the white settlers. Although Colorow and other Utes in the area were removed after the Meeker Massacre of 1879, he did leave a legacy. Present day Colorow Elementary school was named for him, and a rock formation in the area that was apparently one of his favorite lairs continues to be known as “ Colorow’s Cave “.
