I met Hilary and some of the volunteers years ago at a horse expo. It was an honor to finally meet some of the faces behind this great horse rescue whose reputation preceded them. Their work was well-known in our community and soon became legendary in the fight to end horse slaughter. I've worked for many years to fight horse abuse and have never heard a bad thing said about this organization. They are what horse rescue should be!

Front Range Equine Rescue has been instrumental in assisting us with programs to help keep horses in good homes. Our efforts to keep horses with responsible owners and connected to equine veterinarians have met with success thanks to support from FRER. Their belief in innovative, positive solutions to equine issues makes them a true leader in horse rescue and advocacy.

I volunteered with my parents at Front Range Equine Rescue during my middle school and high school years. We loved meeting all of the horses and became a foster family for a few years once we owned horse property. I took riding lessons and participated in educational events to learn more about caring responsibly for horses. It was a great day when I purchased my first horse! Front Range Equine Rescue inspired me to share my love for horses with others and I now have my own students to teach the joys of responsible ownership and proper riding skills. Thank you Front Range for all you do for abused horses!

We adopted a wonderful older horse from Front Range Equine Rescue several years ago. He was a great addition to our horse family. While he's no longer with us, "Ole Blaze" will always be remembered and cherished. They are wonderful people for all they do for abused horses. Their knowledge, compassion and dedication to improving horses' lives is truly admirable.

My husband and I discovered Front Range Equine Rescue back in 2008 when looking to help raise awareness of horse abuse and help local non-profits at our training barn. We've been impressed since our first contact with them and have not stopped our admiration since! They are professional, knowledgeable and always put the horses first. Their achievements range from helping each horse in the most responsible way to educating the local community about responsible horse ownership and other important issues (such as fire evacuation) to large scale efforts to end horse slaughter and advocate on behalf of wild horse protections. Their legal efforts to keep new horse slaughter plants from opening were precedent setting to say the least. We were honored to assist with rehabilitation of abused horses and help with training evaluations. My husband and I also adopted two FRER horses and helped find homes for several others. Cannot say enough good things here!

For over 10 years we've partnered with Front Range Equine Rescue when possible to help abused horses, especially keeping them from slaughter. It's been a win-win for both of our organizations as we can help additional at-risk horses by working together beyond what our groups can do alone. The work we all do can be emotionally draining so it's great to have like-minded people to share the experience with, as well as the heart-warming part of it! Front Range has made a tremendous difference to horse rescue in Colorado and well beyond.

I was thrilled to find the perfect horse for me at Front Range Equine Rescue. My trainer and I had been searching for months when I saw an ad for rescue horses for adoption. The facility was well-kept; their horses looked happy and very cared for. It was clear they knew the horse and his abilities and told us what they knew of his history. My trainer and I knew after that first visit we had found a real gem. I'd recommend looking at Front Range Equine Rescue's horses to anyone looking for a new horse (I adopted one of the CO horses).

Front Range Equine Rescue has shown great responsibility not only in how it cares for at risk horses but in the scope of trying to solve equine abuse. Its special programs to help horse owners or find solutions before horses need help is unique. For a small group it packs a powerful punch. I've been proud to volunteer, provide foster care in earlier years when the rescue had no facility of its own and serve on the board of directors.

We met Front Range Equine Rescue in the early 2000s at a horse expo in Denver. Our family volunteered that summer and for several years after before having to move. We've continued to support their work as we saw first-hand their dedication and excellent care the rescue horses received. Their guidance helped us in getting our first horses. A first rate group!

I remember when Hilary first got her horse Dancer. I saw her reach out to help other less fortunate horses back then and it was no surprise that she began a horse rescue 20 years ago. This small group of people have done phenomenal things. You'd think there were dozens of people working day in and day out to accomplish what they have. Truly a grassroots movement when it came to stopping new U.S. horse slaughter plants. Facilities are gorgeous and the horses, even when they first arrive, are extremely well cared for. I love helping out when I can and seeing all the different horses and their personalities.
