Giddyup to the Zoo.
Hey cowpokes! Hop up in the saddle and take Old Paint for a ride at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We have a mess of trusty steeds in all sizes and colors for the young'uns. Each pony and rider is individually led by a wrangler around a circular trail, nestled in Rocky Mountain Wild, just south of The Lodge at Moose Lake. It's an old west adventure they'll never forget.
