Why Visiting CHR

is so Important

Written by: Bill Friedeman, VP of Philanthropy 

Nestled at the foot of Colorado’s Front Range, Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) is more than just a home for horses – it’s a place of hope, compassion, and community spirit. Our mission is to provide a second chance for horses in need, and we invite you to join us in making a difference.

Horses in pasture

Whether you are an avid equestrian or simply a lover of animals, a visit to CHR promises a chance to witness CHR’s mission in action.

At CHR, each horse has a unique story. While many of the horses we welcome come from responsible private owners needing to rehome them, we also serve horses coming from animal control seizures, retirement from dude ranches, the local livestock auction, partner rescues, and more.

By visiting, you’ll see these incredible animals up close. Our sixty-horse herd of rescues ranges from yearlings to gentle seniors, each one showcasing the beauty and grace that makes horses such special creatures. As you walk past our pastures, you’ll witness firsthand the remarkable transformations made possible by dedicated care and love.

Every visit to Colorado Horse Rescue directly impacts the lives of our horses. Your presence helps raise awareness, inspires future volunteers, and contributes to the financial support needed to fulfill our mission. Here’s how your visit can make a difference:

Education and Awareness: Learn about the challenges facing horses today and how rescue organizations like ours are essential in addressing these issues.

Community Engagement: Become part of a compassionate community dedicated to equine welfare and advocacy.

Support and Donations: Your visit can lead to generous donations, whether through direct contributions, sponsorships, or spreading the word to potential supporters.

When you visit, you can expect a guided tour by our knowledgeable staff and volunteers. They will walk you through the facility, sharing stories of our horses and the rescue process. CHR is conveniently located just outside of Longmont, Colorado, and easily accessible from major highways.


Join us at Colorado Horse Rescue and be a part of something truly special. Your visit not only enriches your understanding and appreciation of these magnificent animals but also plays a vital role in their journey towards a brighter future.
