Trail Rides

Ride With Us!

Parker Trail Riders is dedicated to creating trail riding events for all levels of riders and comfort level of their horses within the beauty of the Front Range Colorado Area.

We strive to have trail rides that are safe, enjoyable and relaxing including some “on the trail clinics” that can be a fantastic on-the-go learning experience and to also introduce the fun, exciting group entertainment of overnight and extended Horse Camping trips.

We always have a fully experienced Trail Rider with our group to help explain and guide our newer riders through any new experiences.

Each of our scheduled rides and events throughout the year are fully explained in advance with detailed Trail Ratings, Descriptions, Parking information, Estimated Time Range and suggested supplies and have been ridden prior by one of experienced Trail Leaders.

At Parker Trail Riders we believe in preserving the trails we ride and have a high level of Trail Etiquette we follow both for the safety of our members and the pristine Colorado trails we use.

Get yourself and your pony dressed up in pink and help us continue to raise money for our local ladies and men fighting and recovering from cancer. 100% of the proceeds from the event help them feed their animals, keep their lights on and anything else they may need during this time.
