Below is a list of resources that Front Range Equine utilizes for their organization:

To Report Stolen Horses Immediately, Contact NetPosse
NetPosse is a division of Stolen Horse International, Inc. (SHI). The mission of SHI is to provide a comprehensive theft awareness program to all facets of the horse industry and offer educational opportunities for horse enthusiasts of all types and across all disciplines. We are a global resource to aid in the search for missing and stolen horses, tack, and trailers. Our international network, NetPosse, is used to disseminate images and information of missing and stolen horses through the Idaho Alerts system.

The Cloud Foundation
The Cloud Foundation, a Colorado non-profit corporation, grew out of Emmy Award winning filmmaker, Ginger Kathrens' knowledge and fear not only for Cloud's herd, but other wild horses in the West.  "I began to realize that we were losing America's wild horses," Ginger says.  "Even Cloud and his family are in danger."  The Cloud Foundation is dedicated to preventing the extinction of Cloud's herd and preserving other wild herds on our public lands.

American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign
The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. Its grassroots efforts are supported by a coalition of over thirty organizations.

NOTE: FRER has several mustangs available for adoption. You can also adopt directly from the BLM. We strongly encourage you to look at horses from their "saddle program" unless you have the time, patience, facility, and experience to work with one that has not been gentled.

Training Resources

Debbie Bibb
Debbie is a certified John Lyons trainer and has conducted benefit clinics for FRER since 2003. We highly recommend visiting Debbie's website to find out more about her horse training schedule.

Lasting Partnership Training Center
Lasting Partnership Training Center, Inc. is a training and boarding center located east of Colorado Springs. LPTC is dedicated to creating a lasting partnership between horse and human using natural horsemanship methods. Great care is taken to insure that the horses are provided with the best care possible, and that their human partners are given the knowledge they need to create and preserve a healthy, happy, lasting partnership with their equine friend!

Parelli Natural Horsemanship
It is Pat Parelli's vision that one day the term "natural" will no longer have to precede the word "horsemanship." Horsemanship does not need to be mechanical. With enough savvy, horses and people can achieve fun, excellence, truth and results, harmony, and unity... naturally, through understanding, communication and psychology, rather than force fear and mechanics.

Milemakers - Joanne Pavlis

Milemakers caters to the pleasure or advanced competitive rider. The idea of one hoofbeat at a time is aimed to welcome anyone interested in the world of horses, no matter the level or style. Milemakers specializes in horse and rider partnerships. We believe that working slow and developing a good foundation and relationship is a fast way to meet any riding goals, putting one hoof in front of the other.
