Front Range Equine Rescue began as an all volunteer organization in 1997.
Horses were initially kept with Board members and a few select foster homes.
Over time, some horses stayed at private boarding facilities for training assessment and adoption.
In 2006, Front Range acquired a 40-acre facility in Larkspur, CO and later expanded with the addition of an 81-acre facility also in Larkspur.
In September 2014, Front Range Equine Rescue relocated a large portion of its rescue, rehab, training and adoption services to a “foster” farm in Nokesville, VA. The facility is a private boarding, training and lesson barn where FRER boards horses and the owner (experienced in rescue work) provides rescue program services for our horses.
In 2015, the Larkspur properties were sold and small horse farms in Ocala, FL and western NC were purchased. Front Range Equine Rescue remains active in Colorado and the West with horses currently kept at a private farm in northern Colorado.
At this time, the Florida property houses a small group of retired horses after undergoing a barn renovation/addition and fencing project prior to occupancy. Due to legal expenses to fight against horse slaughter and to protect America’s wild horses, the NC expansion is on hold at this time.
