At Chatfield Stables, fifty horses roam the prairies at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and dedicated wranglers call to each of them by name, having known many of them since they were lanky and awkward foals. Wranglers organize an extensive schedule of programs and activities to ensure that all these horses receive healthy amounts of play and exercise. Programs include horse camps for riders as young as seven years old, with activities such as grooming, saddling, and riding. Wranglers also lead riding and horsemanship lessons, along with leisurely trail rides through miles of cottonwood groves and open prairie, which follow the Platte River where riders can enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
