About Us
Debbie and Doug created Double D Ranch in 1998 with the desire to provide a fun, relaxed, family atmosphere.  We pride ourselves in our ability to provide a safe and happy place for horse lovers of all ages.
Debbie grew up riding and working with horses in Maryland and New Hampshire.
Doug is a veteran of the United Stated Air Force and has been stationed in Arkansas, Alaska and New Hampshire.
They have two boys, Michael who is 17 and Christopher, who is 12.
Debbie seen here with her 'partner'  Dancer.  They did great things together.  He is 22 now and semi-retired although they occasionally enjoy a trail ride together.

Double D Ranch is a happy, safe and family friendly facility.  We boast 52 acres only 25 minutes from the heart of Denver.  We currently have pasture board with shelter, 7 stalls with runs, a 60x120 outdoor arena, 45 ft roundpen, tack room, trailer storage and access to two very large community arenas.

We are only 2 blocks from the Salisbury Equestrian Park and Cherry Creek trailhead.  A bridle path leads off the property to miles of open space and trails.  We feed top quality, barn stored hay.  We have it analyzed every season to ensure it's nutritional content.  We do not switch our hay, or change suppliers - this is very important for the health of the horse.  We feed by weight, ensuring that each horse gets it's needed requirements every day.
We have a great working relationship with both the vet and the farrier.  The farrier is on site every 3 weeks.  We live on-site, ensuring the consistent hands-on monitoring that every horse deserves and should have.

Pasture Board    $200/month
Stall with runs   $250/month
(prices may vary due to rate changes since the last time Colorado Horse Forum has spoken with the facility owner)

I board my 2 horses with Deb Osborne at Double D Ranch in Parker off of Motsenbocker.

Here are some pictures of my horses and a few of the others who they share a pasture with: http://http://www.cindersandruby.com

My girls are on 22 acres with 18 horses.  They love it!  They kick up their heels and have a ball in their pasture.  There is even a stream that runs through it.

Deb and her family live onsite and care for all 56 horses as if they were her own.  I have never boarded at a facility that gave such personal care.  Deb breeds warmbloods and sport horses.  She has 4 mares in foal for Spring babies.  Check out the horses for sale page of her website to see some of the yearlings and a couple broodmares for sale: http://http://www.doubledranchco.org/horsesforsale.html

Deb is a level 2 Parelli trainer.  She is wonderful to work with and give people like me lessons to polish skills.  I'm a good rider, but she aways has a tip to help me improve.  She also specializes win providing lessons for adults who have confidence issues due to a fall or bad experience.  

The boarders at Double D are GREAT!  They get together and trail ride every weekend.  There are no "cliques" and everyone is welcome to ride.  They are a very friendly group!  Saturday one of the women is competing in the Gymkhanas at Douglas County Fairgrounds.  A bunch of us are taking our kids to watch and cheer for her.  

If you want to come out for a tour call Deb.  I'm usually there on Sat and Sun mornings from 9:30 - till I'm done :)  I'm happy to talk with anyone who has quesions.
