After researching on the internet, my wife and I found Cottonwood.  We immediately liked the vibe.  Its great to get out of the city and ride.  There’s a beautiful view of the Front Range, a huge cross country riding course and access to Chatfield trails.  
My daughter has been riding at Cottonwood for over 6 years now. It has become her second home and I couldn’t ask for a better place for a young teenager to spend her time! She has grown so much, not only as a rider but as a young adult and CRC plays a big part in that! The staff have gone above and beyond to help Katie become the rider she is today. They encourage her to do her best, try hard and to respect herself and her horse! Not only have they spent time with her while on her horse but have also been there for her when she just needs someone to talk to. I couldn’t be more impressed with Cottonwood and how they embrace the kids who ride there! I would highly recommend coming for a visit! You are sure to feel peace and happiness the moment you step out of your car!
Over the years, much has changed in the horse industry. However, one constant has been the excellent care and compassion of Cottonwood Riding Club. Having boarded a horse for over 15 years at the facility, I’ve always felt reassured he was being well fed and taken care of. From the time we purchased him as a young, off the track Thoroughbred to his school master status, he remains a happy horse in the same paddock he has lived in for the past 15 years.  Cottonwood is a first class facility dedicated to a horse’s well-being. 
We love coming out to “the barn” every day. It’s such a beautiful, peaceful environment.  My stressful day literally melts away the moment I step out of the car. You just can’t help but feel happiness and peace. I swear it’s my daily therapy! My daughter just started her third year of riding lessons and I cannot speak more highly of each and every member of your staff. All of her instruction has been caring and professional in every way. As first-time horse owners, we have benefited so much by all the knowledge and expertise you’ve taught us. You’ve always been there for us and always have time to help us. You are all clearly a close knit “family” and you have made us feel welcomed into it.  We’re deeply thankful for you and all you do.
