Horses are allowed on most parts of the Ring, everything except the Mount Esther trail and North Slope Recreation Area.

None of the access points for Ring the Peak has designated trailer parking, but some parking areas have enough space for trailers.   

Camping with horses is allowed in backcountry areas of national forest land, that is, Forest Service dispersed camping is allowed with horses.  But horses are not allowed in developed Forest Service campgrounds in the Pikes Peak ranger district. 

Forest Service requires horses to use certified weed free feed, and recommends that riders change the feed for their horses 4 to 5 days before riding in the forest, as feed takes time to work through the digestive system.
