Over the past 20 years, Denver Equestrians owner Corinne M. Lettau has been mastering proper horse training and horse communication while studying under elite professionals such as 1994 Olympic bronze medalist Michelle Gibson. At her 32,000-square-foot equestrian complex, Corinne and a team of talented instructors share their bond with horses by leading students through riding lessons, horsemanship classes, and rider assessments. On large indoor and outdoor arenas, students cover the basics of oat-powered transportation, such as mounting, dismounting, and transitioning from walk to halt. In group classes, students glean horseback know-how alongside up to five other riders. During private lessons, students build upon individual strengths and weaknesses and discuss the advancement of elective hoof surgery for humans.

The staff at Cisco's Den goes to great lengths to care for dogs both with and without homes. Pups brought to the facility by their loving parents play with attentive caretakers while exploring indoor and outdoor play yards, spacious dog runs, and poker rooms. When not at play, pups rest in large kennels with room to move about and assume yoga poses. Additionally, Cisco's Den offers conveniences such as paperless drop-offs, as well as parking and airport shuttles for customers dropping off their dogs before their vacations.
In a separate center, staff members care for rescue dogs, providing them with homes until loving families can be found. Proceeds from Cisco's Den are donated to DMK Rehoming, a no-kill rescue service and shelter that gives canines a chance to find a permanent home.

The privately owned Overland Animal Hospital & Pet Resort spans 17,000 square feet of facilities that more resemble a boutique pet hotel than an animal clinic. Claiming accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association, Overland’s general practice veterinarians see to pet health with services that range from vaccinations to pet hospitalization. The boarding facilities cater to both canines and felines even during the holidays, comforting lodgers with heating, air conditioning, and unlimited access to the outdoors for dogs. Onsite webcams similarly comfort owners, letting them check in on their furry friends.
Dogs can also come to daycare, where they get to romp with similarly sized pooches during hours of outdoor play. Individual daycare programs are available for pups who prefer working on their memoirs to frolicking with other dogs. Further services include professional dog training and grooming, during which staff only use hypoallergenic products.
