Helicon Show Stables
At Helicon Show Stables, students of all ages and levels of ability study the equestrian arts under award-winning trainers. Visitors ride ponies or horses in a spacious indoor arena or in the fresh air of the outdoor ring, framed by stunning views of the Rocky Mountains in the distance. Boarders, meanwhile, take advantage of top-notch facilities, homing their steeds in the barn's large box stalls and grassy pastures. The 10 acres are overseen by owner and head instructor Molly Rinedollar, who has a degree in equine science and seems to have held every possible riding-related position: winning competitor, trainer, team coach, and judge.
