Horse Education Programs

Horse Education Overview

Since its beginning in 1997, Front Range Equine Rescue has offered educational programs and campaigns on both local and national levels.  The educational program consists of events and printed materials which provide information on horse care, owner responsibility, wild horse issues, and ending horse slaughter responsibly.  Events and clinics have included basic first aid, equine nutrition, round pen basics, under saddle problem solving, trail riding safely, fire/disaster evacuation, trailer loading, natural horsemanship, effectively communicating with horses, and youth camps. 

Front Range’s newsletter, The Hoof Beat, keeps donors and other supporters apprised of rescue horses, Front Range’s activities, program efforts, and ways to help horses.

A series of educational brochures includes Before You Buy A Horse, Did You Know?, Equine Nutrition, Fire Evacuation for Horses, Horse Slaughter, Solutions to Horse Slaughter, Saving America’s Wild Horses, Finding A Suitable Trainer, Re-Homing Your Horse, Equine Dentistry, Saddle Fitting, and Using Alternative Therapies in Horse Care.
