THE MARK REYNER STABLES
Mark Reyner Stables has been a landmark organization in Colorado Springs for over 50 years. This organization has contributed to Colorado Springs and surrounding communities by offering horseback riding lessons to children and adults, providing boarding for horses, sponsoring "Little Britches Rodeos," and promoting the personal growth of both children and adults through horsemanship.
Established in 1954, Mark Reyner Stables is nestled in beautiful Palmer Park, and conveniently located in the heart of Colorado Springs. Palmer Park was deeded to the City of Colorado Springs in 1899 by Colorado Springs' founder Gen. William Jackson Palmer. The Park offers horseback riding on numerous trails that meander through a beautiful 750-acre mesa that overlooks the City of Colorado Springs and lies in the shadows of the magnificent Pikes Peak region of the Great Rocky Mountains.
Mark Reyner Stables is owned and operated by Bob & Nancy Harrison. Both Bob and Nancy each have a lifetime of equestrian experience, a passion for horses, an true dedication to children, and work unrelenting to uphold the Western Heritage in the Pikes Peak region. Together they make Mark Reyner Stables a remarkable environment to experience everything equestrian. Palmer Park and The Mark Reyner Stables is the home of The Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center.
