Hi, my name is Ginger DeRay...
…and I am the owner and operator of A&A Historical Trails Stables.
I was born on a cold, stormy Feb. day in 1955 in Grand Lake, CO, where my parents operated a lodge and a pony ring by the lake. My parents eventually lost the lodge because of “paperwork.” Penniless, they moved to Aurora (east Denver) with a pony ring to start Saddle Lane Stables. I don’t remember when I first rode a horse. I do remember, however, helping my mom make ribbons from scratch… ribbons that were given away every Sunday to participants in the weekly gymkanas my parents offered. When I was 14, I left my parents, my three sisters, my two bothers, and my home in order to find my destiny. Six months later, I realized what my destiny was… it was that which I had left! So homeward bound I went with a new outlook on life and a new respect for my parents and environment.
