Horse Club...there is so much more to "Horse Culture" than riding. Just being around them makes people feel good and better about themselves and this is reflected in art and literature through out the ages! Horse club is a great way to learn about art, literature and history through man's journey with the horse!        Recreational Riding

 

The opportunity to ride as a recreational activity is an option for all residents.

Equine Assisted Learning      Everthing is more fun with a "study buddy" and a four legged buddy is the best kind ever! Horses can make geometry come alive!     Horse Club

 

The fascinating thing about horses, is that there are so many ways to enjoy them. From the ancient cave paintings of Lascaux to the Denver Bronco's mascot, horses continue to inspire us. The Horse Club is a chance to explore the horse in art, history, literature and cultures around the world.
