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 the years, some horses stayed at private boarding facilities for training assessment and adoption services.
In 2006 and 2009, Front Range Equine Rescue acquired facilities in Larkspur, CO while expanding its rescue and educational program efforts.
In 2015, the Larkspur properties were sold to help Front Range with expanding services to the East Coast. FRER’s main administrative function and its retired horses are currently located on a farm in Ocala, FL while Front Range’s rescue and educational work continue in Colorado and the West. FRER’s horses in Colorado are located at a private farm in northern CO under the supervision of Shiloh Acres Horse Rescue (SAHR). Front Range and SAHR have partnered for many years to save hundreds of at-risk horses in addition to what each group does independently.
From 2014-2017, FRER extended its rescue, rehab, training and adoption services to a “foster” farm in Virginia as part of its work on the East Coast. FRER horses were boarded at this privately owned boarding, lesson and training facility. Front Range also paid for additional services for training assessment and adoption services with the facility’s owner who had prior experience with the rescue of at risk horses.
