Our Colorado Campus is situated in the historical Southwest corner of Colorado, in the heart of the old West.
Surrounded by stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and famous mineral Hot Springs where you can sink down and relax after a day of riding through mountain trails studded with Ponderosa Pine, Blue Spruce and Aspen trees. Many of the trees are so tall, they appear to reach the sky. The perfect place to be outside with your horse.
The entire property has been turned into a Horseman’s Adventure Park, with miles of trails, interesting topography and stunning views which makes even a casual trail ride a lifetime memory.
Imagine the feeling you will have cantering or galloping your horse up mile-long meadows with a slight incline. Everything on campus is designed to help you become successful with your horse and fullfill your dreams. We have two indoor arenas, several outdoor arenas, two 180-foot round corrals, one of which is in Pat’s Professional Playground, the other one is nestled in Meadow Bonita, and there are extensive confidence courses with dozen of obstacles, jumps and challenges.
Before you ride your horse through the Confidence Course, you will experience the exhilaration of seeing your horse gain confidence and coordination with obstacles on the ground. Feel the thrill of having him do it with a calm, connected and responsive attitude with you in the saddle.
Every Wednesday night, we have a BBQ and campfire featuring horsemanship exhibitions given by our top students and instructors and serenaded by well-known musicians. A highlight of the year is our pinnacle event every September, ‘The Savvy Summit.’
Pagosa Springs, famous for its world-class mineral Hot Springs, rivers and stunning views, is nestled in the center of the San Juan Mountains, known as one of the most stunning ranges of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It is located 2 ½ hours from the world acclaimed Santa Fe, New Mexico and an hour from the Wild West town Durango. A short drive from there you can experience Mesa Verde Cliff Dwellings and the Adventure Town of Telluride. The area between Pagosa and Telluride is intimately known as “Little Switzerland.” If you enjoy aerial views, a beautiful hot air balloon ascends to the heavens every morning at 7am and the launching pad is right next door to Pat’s favorite 27-hole Golf Course.
Most of the restaurants in town have named either a dish on their menu or a drink after Pat Parelli.
Come join us at our spiritual Home and create your Horsemanship memories of a lifetime!
