Imagine a better

World For Horses

We are Colorado Horse Rescue, and we work to continuously reimagine what’s possible and create a reality where safe solutions exist for every horse.

Marshall Fire

Relief Resources

HAY BANK

CHR is partnering with Boulder County Animal Control to coordinate the official hay bank for our community after the devastating Marshall Fire. If you are in need of hay, come to the rescue from 8 am – 5 pm, seven days a week.

FREE WINTER BLANKETS

If you are in need of a winter blanket for your horse due to loss in the Marshall Fire, come to the rescue from 8 am – 5 pm for free winter blankets. We are also accepting good-quality, waterproof winter blanket donations at these same times.

REHOME YOUR HORSE

If circumstances have impacted your ability to provide for your horse, consider rehoming through CHR. Unfortunately, we cannot provide temporary boarding at the ranch.

FINANCIAL HELP

Colorado Horse Rescue’s Leg-Up Program can provide you with temporary financial relief if you are experiencing loss from the Marshall Fire or another crisis.

EDUCATE

Imagine a time where horses are no longer thought of only as tools or sports equipment.

CARE

Imagine a society that empowers every horse to reach their potential.

ADOPT

Imagine a culture where every horse is valued.

FOGGY

Foggy's training evaluation states that he has not been under saddle with CHR trainers at this point. He is wearing a saddle during groundwork and not entirely compliant in the process. Time will help us determine his riding potential and skill level. Will likely need an advanced rider/handler. Fron…

The

Issue

Every week, an average of 18 horses are sold at the livestock auction in our community. Approximately ten are purchased by kill buyers and shipped to Mexico to be slaughtered for meat. We rescue as many of these animals as we can, in addition to accepting and rehoming horses from families in personal crisis.
