Established in 1986, Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) has a legacy of making a real, measurable difference in the number of at-risk horses and the safe solutions available to them. Each year, we welcome ~80 horses of all breeds, ages, and abilities through our gates. These horses come to us from a variety of circumstances - private owner surrender, fellow rescue transfers, retirement from dude ranches, animal control seizures, the local livestock auction, and more.

Your gift gives the deserving horses we serve the opportunity to heal emotionally and physically, receive necessary training, and be a part of CHR's robust foster and adoption programs to eventually find their forever home. Through the support of generous donors like YOU, CHR is pioneering innovative processes and programs to support horses in transition and keep them out of unsafe or unkind hands.

Your donation makes a real impact for horses in need. Read CHR's 2022 Impact Report here.


We are Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR), and we are building a better future for horses. We see it. We believe in it. And we are here to make it happen. Every day, we choose to keep our eyes, minds, and gates open to what’s possible for the betterment of horses everywhere. We believe that it’s up to us – all of us - to create new traditions in the best interest of horses, humans, and the partnerships we share.

Background Statement

CHR was founded in 1986 to provide safety for abused and neglected horses. In 1988, CHR was officially established as a federal tax-exempt 501(c)(3) impact organization and, in 2001, moved to its current 50-acre property in Longmont, CO. Today, the property operates at full-capacity (with a waitlist) providing care for 60 deserving horses.
