Stone Gate Horses

Stone Gate Ranch is Paradise Found Farm

Mimi has retired and passed the reins to Stephanie Peterson and Sue and Ray Krueger Koplin

The name has changed but it's still the same premier equestrian center. A large but comfortable barn, full size indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, galloping paths, cross-country course and round pen.

Boarding options including 40 13x17 ft. box stalls (inside or with runs), private or shared paddocks and a six acre pasture. Several grassy turnouts totaling approximately ten acres give all the boarded horses a place to kick up their heels.

Less than 4 miles from old town and 5 from the CSU equestrian center our North Taft Hill Road location is only a few minutes from most anywhere in Fort Collins.

Much more than just a place to keep your horses, it's a place you can really relax and enjoy your horses.

For hunter jumper, dressage, training, lessons or boarding contact Stephanie for an appointment or more information

Justin and Ray on horseback Tenorio volcano

Ray (right) and his good friend Justin on the slopes of Tenorio Volcano in Guanacaste northern Costa Rica. Of course this has nothing to do with a horse farm in Colorado, but it's the only picture we could find of Ray on a horse.

You'll find him on the tractor, bobcat, in the shop, in front of a computer, or dragging irrigation dams around the property but probably not on a horse.

Sue's been an avid recreational rider for forty years and loves all animals.
Stephanie Jumping

Stephanie has been riding ever since she can remember. Although she did not start formal lessons until she was 10 she has always had a passion for horses. As a child, Stephanie rode western and english and competed in 4-H until she found her true love in the hunter/jumper world.

During her junior years, she won numerous year-end championships in hunters, jumpers and equitation as well as qualifying for the national USEF and USET medal. She continued her winning ways as an adult including a Horse of the Year award with her mount Divine Intervention.

While in college, Stephanie decided that being a professional in the horse industry is where her passion was. She finished with two degrees (business and equine science) , but is happy she gets to spend all day with horses.

Her training philosophy is centered around developing an athletic, happy horse who is happy doing his or her job. She always expects the personal best out of all of her riders, and seeks to not only teach them how to ride but also how to be horsemen.
