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, Front Range acquired a 40-acre facility in Larkspur, CO and in 2009 expanded with the addition of an 81-acre facility also in Larkspur.
In September 2014, Front Range Equine Rescue expanded its rescue, rehab, training and adoption services to include a private “foster” farm in Nokesville, VA. The facility is a private boarding, training and lesson barn where FRER boards some rescue horses. Front Range has an additional agreement with the facility’s owner (experienced in rescue work) to provide rescue, training and adoption services for our horses.
In 2015, the Larkspur properties were sold and Front Range relocated its main administrative function and small retired herd of horses to a farm in Ocala, FL. Front Range Equine Rescue remains very active in Colorado and the West with rescue horses and services based out of a private farm in northern Colorado. Front Range has partnered for over 10 years with the rescue coordinator at this location in northern CO to save hundreds of at-risk horses.
