Holiday Pony Rides

Enjoy a 15-minute pony ride and then decorate a cookie and warm up with cocoa. Reservations are required.  To make a reservation, call the Ken-Caryl Riding School @ 303-972-8456 or email eqschool@kcranch.org.

The pony ride will be conducted by one of our experienced camp or riding school instructors, but we do ask an adult to walk alongside young children to help them keep their balance.  Don’t forget your cameras! After your ride stick around to meet our other horses and watch our students ride.  Children and parents must wear boots or lace-up shoes.  No slip-ons, flip-flops, or open-toed shoes allowed.  You are encouraged to bring your own toddler-sized bike helmet for children under 5.

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Equestrian Center boarding and training facility is located in the foothills southwest of Denver.
