About Black Canyon Stables

Black Canyon Stables is an equestrian-styled wedding venue located in Ridgway, Colorado, founded by horse-lovers John Hoyt and Paula Dunn. Inspired by their vision for a combined horse training and boarding facility, the duo opened their stables to welcome to-be-weds and their guests in style. Surrounded by the San Juan and the Cimarron mountain ranges, the equestrian farm is beautifully situated, ensuring that the views are excellent in all directions. Couples are sure to look back on their big day at the farm with fondness.

Facilities and Capacity

Boasting charming barn-style venues suitable for weddings from 2 to 200 guests, Black Canyon Stables entices to-be-weds to indulge their creative vision. With ample space for both indoor and outdoor events, the farm offers many wonderful options for couples to choose from for their ceremony and reception. Guests can witness you making your vows while looking out over a pond and mountain peaks, creating a dazzling effect on a momentous occasion. As a fully customizable venue, the staff encourages to-be-weds to explore inspirational ideas and make use of the location. The barn is ideal for seated receptions and after-parties, with room for different table layouts and a dance floor. Alternative dining arrangements are available such as buffet-style and food stations, allowing couples to design the day of their dreams. Couples are also welcome to use the equestrian stables and surrounding buildings for engagement photos and wedding photoshoots, keeping the big day in one location.

Paula Dunn

Owner

I have been a healthcare technology executive and entrepreneur for over 30 years. Originally from Arizona, now living part of the year in Colorado, one of my hobbies is riding horses specifically in three-day eventing. John and I started the barn as our private riding facility but it has grown into a beautiful event facility. We began having parties and weddings for our friends and family but it has grown to be a major part of our business. My good friends Leslie and Chuck Waters keep the grounds beautiful and take care of the horses while we are in Arizona.
