Oh my goodness, I cannot begin to say enough wonderful words about Teri Allen and her horse rescue. Teri rescues horses out of terrible situations and also takes in owner surrenders. The second these horses enter her care, Teri shows them all the love and care they deserve. She works not only closely with rehabbing and helping understand the horse and why they might be fearful or what training holes they might have, she also works closely with potential owners and strives so hard to make sure that the horse and owner will be a perfect match. I adopted a horse from Teri in December of 2016 and he is my best pal ever. I still have to pinch myself knowing that I get the honor of being Tyson's owner and that she picked me!

I have been a client of Teri's for almost 20 years where I have had my horses in training and boarding at her training facility. She has an extensive knowledge in many breeds of horses, riding disciplines and most importantly, shows the utmost compassion for the horses under her care.

Horse rescue was the next path I knew she would take. While training horses, she often received calls of horses going to the slaughter auctions. She started rescuing these horses paying their bail out of her own pocket and with the help of friends. Incorporating her rescue enabled her to raise more money to rescue more horses.

Local rescues like Terolyn Horse Rescue LLC are the lifeblood in stepping into the front lines to rescue horses from the kill buyers and through owner surrender. I feel her rescue is so deserving in receiving the support to further her mission in helping these horses.

I have been a volunteer for this rescue since the beginning and have witnessed many amazing success stories. The focus is on giving each and every horse a second chance at a happy life. Most horses that arrive at the rescue are scared, sick, and/or neglected. They receive expert veterinary care, farrier attention, and of course, lots and lots of love. The transformations make it all worthwhile! Every horse matters!

I have known Teri Allen with Terolyn Horse Rescue Inc (Elizabeth,Co) for 20+ years. She patiently helped me ride horses again after a long break from riding due to an accident when I was little. Teri has trained me, then my horses over the years. Teri is absolutely the best person to learn from and to take care of your horses. I'm so proud of her success and of the lives she has saved during her rescue work. Like many people out there, I was unaware of what is happening to horses sold at auction and sent to slaughter. Rescues like Terolyn are so important not only for saving horses but for educating the public and raising awareness about the slaughter pipeline.

This is one non-profit that I can honestly say 100% of donations go right to where they are supposed to, in this case rescued horses. Anyone who works there, including the founder, does not get compensated in any way. I've never seen a more devoted, passionate and hard working bunch. It's difficult work, sometimes heartbreaking, but all of the horses are treated with love and respect and are rehabilitated on an individual-need basis. They are nursed back to health and develop trust in humans again. I will ALWAYS donate to and support Terolyn Horse Rescue in any way possible, they are making a big difference in the horse's lives using skills, resources and abilities that I don't have myself. I can't even say how much I respect and admire these folks.

Teri is the most amazing woman! She is so caring toward her rescues and loves each and everyone of them. She and her team work tirelessly to ensure the equines at the ranch are 110 percent cared for. Every horse looks healthy and happy. I adopted Mia, a 1 year old appendix filly. Mia was just a few days old when her and her mom were rescued (by Terolyn Rescue)from the fate of sadly many horses face, slaughter. Mia is a thriving friendly girl, she would climb into your lap if she could. She was raised properly and it shows. She is trusting, loving, willing to please, and most of all the best friend you can ever have from a horse. I look forward to all the years together we will have. I would defiantly recommend you should give this place a try. You will not be disappointed.

Our experience with Terolyn Horse Rescue Inc. has been spectacular. Teri and her staff go above and beyond the general rescue and adoption process. We first visited them with full intention of adopting one of their horses we had our hearts set on. After careful evaluation from Teri and her trainer they told us they would not let allow us to adopt that specific horse due to certain issues the horse had which would not be safe for our daughters. We went through this process until we found a perfect fit which is what they do, they find you and their horses the perfect match. They made sure that we visited on multiple occasions and rode the horse they had matched us with several times before we were able to adopt him. They take pride in their work and are honest above all else. Every aspect of our experience has been nothing short of excellent and we will continue to support them and recommend them at the highest level.
