Hilary is very committed to rescuing horses and defending the American mustang. She's a modern day St. Francis.

Front Range Equine Rescue is a wonderful organization. The horses are very well taken care of and I enjoyed the time I spent there. I loved giving the horses affection and knew that their stalls were clean and neat whenever I left. I have volunteered at other animal shelters and Front Range Equine Rescue is definitely the best I have encountered.

I have been involved off and on as a volunteer in several roles as well as a temporary foster facility since their early days. I am consistantly impressed with the genuine caring and professionalism of this group to not only help save as many neglected and abused horses as they responsibly can, but also on their quest to educate people on proper care and understanding of the animals. This includes initiating several proactive programs to help reduce the impact of backyard breeding and unnecessary slaughter. Any horse lucky enough to find themselves rescued by FRER is guaranteed to be given the best of health and nutritional care and placed into a well matched home. Any time I have visited their facility it has been very clean and safely organized, and the horses have plenty of room for exercise and grazing. I have several friends who have adopted rescue horses, and it is just amazing how these animals seem to know and appreciate the second chance they have been given for a better life. The resulting bonds are heart warming indeed! This is a first class organization!

I have been volunteering at Front Range rescue every week for many years now, plus I have fostered two of the rescue horses at my own barn. I have always been very, very impressed with the ethics and care of the horses. I have seen other rescue facilities that were very under par on both ethics and care. Hilary who manages the Front Range Rescue does an excellant job of keeping the facility clean in every respect. She has a great volunteer crew who clean stalls and freshen water twice a day. The horses are very well fed and have excellant shelter. I am mostly impressed with her constant medical care of all of the horses. She has many professionals working with them, and these horses come in with multiple health and physical issues. They are givien immediate attention with whatever they need. At the same time, I respect her ability to let a horse be put down if it has unsurmountable problems and suffering. She always has the best interest of the horse in mind, and does not need to go to heroic lengths to keep them alive if pain and suffering cannot be relieved. I am also very impressed with her standards for adopting a horse out. Certain criteria have to be met and Front Range follows up on all adopotions. Even foster homes, such as mine, have her constant attention for medical issues, food and supplies. Hilary is very accessable whether you are adopting, fostering, or volunteering. She also works to restore behaviour and rideability with the horses by the trainers who work with them. Safety is a major issue. Actually I can't say enough about this organization and its management. Even if hard pressed, I could not think of any critcism. It really is a model to be put out there for how to manage a horse rescue.
