    you are probably the closest to the kiowa/eliabeth area which is about an hour or so. Parker would be a little bit farther.
    there are lots of options for riding in the area, just cost and the disciple are different. i don't know anyone for dressage in the area. I also am not sure how much you are willing to pay, if you want a lesson or just to ride, or your level of skill which all would influence where i would recommend.
    any more details you can give?

    Kiowa (a little over an hour) is further than Parker (about 30-45 minutes) from Colorado Springs. Black Forest and Monument are the closest bets for a hunter or dressage lesson. But you may be hard pressed since schoolies aren't common at most of those places.

    If you just want to go for a trail ride, give Academy Riding Stables near Garden of the Gods a call (719-633-5667). Sure, it's guided, but it's time in the saddle through a really cool spot.
