Horseback riding is one of the best ways to explore Golden. With a horse, you can climb to the top of Lookout Mountain or North Table Mountain and experience magnificent vistas of the mountains to the West and Denver the East.
GET THE WESTERN EXPERIENCE
Experience Golden like the first settlers did – with their horse! Horseback riding also provides an authentic Western experience without going too far into the mountains. Several outfitters in Golden provide guided trail rides and riding lessons, including Silver Quarter Acres and Pine Cliff Stables. Silver Quarter Acres is an all-discipline horse boarding and training facility that is centrally located just east of Golden with easy access to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, the Denver Coliseum, and immersed in some of the most beautiful trails and open space our county has to offer. They have been boarding horses in the Golden area since 1986. Pine Cliff Stables, located north of Golden, offers horseback rides for the whole family interested in a great mountain trail ride or individuals wanting a quite time in the mountains.
