Our History

In 1969 Corky Warren bought and built the barn we know as Oasis Equestrian Center. The indoor arena was the first indoor arena built in Fort Collins. Corky built this arena to train to make it to the NFR, which he did in 1973. When he wasn’t training himself for the NFR, he put on team roping practices and lots of barrel racing and team roping events and clinics for all ages. Corky worked very closely with CSU and the University’s livestock club “Little National Western”. Corky Warrens Arena was a big name for Fort Collins Colorado equine riders.

In 1975 Corky’s Arena turned into Saddletree Stables. it was used as a horse boarding, training and roping facility.

In 1995 Saddletree Stables turned into Patriot Farms. Horse boarding was still being utilized at this facility but they started F.R.E.E rides. Front Range Exceptional Equestrians ride was designed for people who had disabilities to learn and develop social, physical and emotional skills while riding and being around horses.

In 2004 Patriot Farms turned into High Country stables. High Country Stables did horse boarding, training and kid camps.

In 2014 High Country Stables was bought and named Oasis Equestrian Center. Horse boarding and English training became the norm. In 2021 when the May family bought Oasis Equestrian center they decided to bring back some of the original history back. They now have a team roping arena and are are hoping to start putting on gymkhanas, barrel races, team roping practices and jackpots and jumping shows in the near future.
