Colorado Horsepower

therapeutic riding center

To protect students, volunteers and family members Colorado Horsepower Spring Session previously scheduled to begin the week of March 29, 2020 and end Saturday June 6 is cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

At this time, we hope to resume HorsePower for the summer session beginning the week of June 14.  We will continue to assess the situation over the next few months in concert with CDC and State guidelines and keep you and your families informed during this challenging time.

 We recognize what a tough and uncertain time this is for all members of our HorsePower family and look forward to a time of healing and “getting back in the saddle.” Many thanks for your patience, stay safe and healthy.

We are available to answer any questions  through email info@coloradohorsepower.org or by phone 303-594-1509
