Dancing Bear Ranch Boarding and Arena Rental

Dancing Bear Ranch is the home of Sandy and Bill Chestnutt, the place where Earth Walk Medicine operates (see links above), where our horse stable is for boarding, and where the competition size outdoor arena is. The arena is available for clinics, shows, and to individuals who wish to have an opportunity to practice their riding skills in a safe and controlled environment. Never puddles! Rain and ride!

Additionally there is a covered sitting area overlooking the arena…great for auditors and spectators alike, and a 60' round pen for lunging and warm-up.

Great riding trails surround us. Ride to the Rio Grande Gorge, Manby Hot Springs, or just cruise the mesa! Park here, warm-up, head out!

Board your horse where they are part of the family!  Our brand new facility opens August 1, 2017—Full Service Boarding.

• indoor stalls with mat floors
• 12' x 36' runouts with direct turnout to the grazing field
• shared tack room
• grooming and wash area
Includes full use of the arena, round pen, and trail access, and hay feed x2/day. Security cameras. 
Residents may arrange to have lessons or get training with the trainers that come here. Trails are self guided (there's a map). Arena has jumping standards for those who practice that, and other cool stuff. All obstacles are available for use. 
Our stable is an intimate setting with easy entrance and parking. We are pretty much always here, so the horses will always be tended to. Visiting local Vet and Farrier.
