2018 Heritage Ride in support of the Colorado Horse Council

The 2018 HERITAGE RIDE is in support of the Colorado Horse Council and equine industry in our state. The Heritage Ride focuses on education of the equine community and is an annual fundraiser to support work in protecting and advocating for horses in the state of Colorado.

 Join other horse lovers on a trail ride with an option to join in Poker Run, Win Prizes. Each rider will collect five cards from buckets out on the trail. The envelopes containing the cards will be opened upon your return to the trail head. The best hands win! Prizes for 1st-3rd place.

The Heritage Ride Registration to include "Day at the Races" is $20 with lunch and park entrance included.

The Obstacle Challenge Series is $25.

An opportunity to try working cattle is $10.


The ride will start at 8:30 am and riders will be allowed to take a trip around the race track and get the feel of what jockeys and horses see as they race!  This is a very unique experience and riding on that course is a new experience in itself. Then it is off to an 80-acre trail course where riders will compete to win prizes in our first Heritage Poker Run. This is a great networking ride and a chance for you to enjoy a natural trail adventure and ride to win great prizes.

Now that you and your horse are warmed up, have you ever want to try an obstacle course or work with cattle?  Well now is your opportunity!

The Colorado Obstacle Challenge Series will be hosting an event right on site.  They have great beginner classes and novice classes as well more advanced challenges, heck you can even elect to participate in a Jackpot run and win it all!  This is a great up and coming organizations that was featured at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo  and have a great belt buckle program as well.

Ok, now it is your chance to cowboy or cowgirl up and give yourself a chance to learn to work with cattle.  Whether you just want to try your hand at moving a herd around or trying your skills at Ranch Sorting, this is a perfect venue to give it a try, this is not a competition, it's an opportunity!  Cattle will be available at the Arapahoe Fairgrounds Rodeo Arena, you'll be passing it on your way to and from the trail ride, so stop and see what it is all about.

The final part of your equestrian adventure at Arapahoe Race Park is a "Day at the Races".  Your Heritage Ride registration gets you entrance into the race park, lunch, barn tours and paddock tours.  Not only will you learn about the racing industry, you be able to see up close the horse and the races.  Arapahoe Race Park has live Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing starting at 1:00 pm.
