Time to Ride — July 15th & 29th, 5:30 – 8:00 Rides

Time to Ride — July 8th, July 15th and July 29th.

Alpine Animal Hospital “Time to Ride” will feature horseback rides for kids in a special pen, lessons on horse care, and the opportunity for questions and answers. The rides will be offered from 5:30 to 8:00. Riders need to be lined up by the riding pen near the picnic pavilion prior to 8:00. At 8:00, they will not be allowing anyone else to line up, so they can complete the riding activity for those lined up prior to 8:00. Chuck Maker, DVM and Sonia Marzec of Alpine Equine Hospital have graciously pulled together this special activity. Thank you also to Lisa Flynn of Aspen Riding Academy for providing the horses. Laura Martin and Lisa Nieslanik are on deck as well to bring horses if needed. This activity has been a favorite of kids at the rodeo and has brought many a smile to adults as well. Be sure and tell them how much you enjoy Time to Ride.

To enjoy riding activities outside of the rodeo you can contact Lisa Flynn, of Aspen Riding Academy. She primarily operates out of Cozy Point Stables but will travel to your location. Lisa offers horsemanship, arena riding, horse education and opportunity to be on an equestrian team. Lisa can be reached at [email protected] or at 970-379-9481.
