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.

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).

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 adopted a fantastic mustang from Front Range Equine Rescue about 6 years ago. I LOVE HIM! He is the best horse ever and it makes me so sad and angry to think he would have gone to slaughter if not for Front Range Equine Rescue. They have helped so many horses and done a great job with them. I can't imagine my life without my rescue horse.

A great organization dedicated to saving abused horses. Front Range Equine Rescue is not only practical and responsible with how it handles rescue, rehab and placement of its horses, but has innovative programs to keep horses from being abused. Their work to responsibly end horse slaughter is awe-inspiring as are efforts to protect wild horses.

I spent two days at Front Range for research on a book I'm writing about equine rescues and sanctuaries. I've visited many fine places around the U.S. but I can say with all sincerity that Front Range stands out as a superb rescue, organization, and group of people. I was impressed by the number of rescues they take in and their adoption rate; the training and rehabilitation program for the horses, the barns and pastures, and the level of healthcare given to horses that arrive at their facility. Front Range also offers an unique education program in the summer for kids, which I was able to observe. I had the impression the kids were not only having a good time but also learning about horses, horse care, and humane treatment of all animals.
