Building a course for riders and their horses to practice trail skills so that they can enjoy our beautiful Colorado outdoors.

Some Quick Information About The Course & Parking:


The course is open every day from dawn to dusk and is free to the public.


We do ask for donations though, as our friends group is fully tasked with fundraising, designing, building and maintaining the course with no monetary and little labor assistance from El Paso County Parks.  This is a unique course and the only one in the country, if not the world, where it’s completely free and open to the public. It also features beginner, intermediate and

advanced levels at each obstacle.  


Parking is along the north side of the RV parking lot near the dirt pile at Norris-Penrose Event Center (NPEC) as shown on the map on our Facebook page and website. 


The event center is at 1045 Lower Gold Camp Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80905.

No Spring Fling Poker Ride in 2023.

Unfortunately, we will unable to rally enough volunteers to host this event at the skills course at Bear Creek Regional Park this year.   We'll hope to rally and have the event again in the spring of 2024.  

In the meantime ....Get Out & Ride!
