About FRRC

About FRRC

Fountain Riding and Roping Club was founded in 1969, by thirteen families of riding enthusiasts from Fountain, CO.  The first FRRC Gymkhana was held on December 7th, 1969!  The original members approached the City of Fountain with a request to use a section of the City's park land for horse activities. The City agreed to lease the land to FRRC. In the early days, the arena fence and lights were made up of vehicles and headlights! With planning and hard work land was cleared and leveled, arena ground was worked up, heavy duty fences were constructed, labor and materials were donated, eventually the clubhouse was built and through it all, the City of Fountain has partnered with the club to provide a PUBLIC arena for anyone to ride in when club events are not being held. 

FRRC is based in Metcalfe Park, located at 704 East Ohio Street in Fountain, Colorado.  As a club, we are dedicated to promoting horseback riding, family fun, and horsemanship in the western way of life. Riding is both a great sport and a great family activity.  All breeds and riding disciplines are welcome!

Our club colors are red, white and blue. 

Come join us! Plenty of bleacher seating is available, so bring your family and friends to watch the fun!


Our objectives (as written in the FRRC By-laws): 

1) To develop and promote good fellowship and sportsmanship among people who are interested in equestrian activities.

2) To encourage, promote, and develop the owning, care, use, handling and development of riding horses.

3) To promote and develop good horsemanship, together with the knowledge and interest in the care, training and breeding of good horses.

4) To promote and encourage the sport, pleasure, exercise and recreation of the members.

5) To encourage socializing and friendship among the members.

6) To manage and conduct entertainments, excursions, contests and social meeting for the members.
