“You’ve heard the expression “when one door closes, another door opens”…
I have been associated with Sandy Rose and her staff at Victory Hill Training Center in Salida, CO for about 2 years where I have worked with two horses. During my weekly visits, I constantly admired the amazing work Sandy and her staff do with the horses from Front Range Equine Rescue. One especially…a fuzzy, white, winter coated, 3 year old pinto filly named Anna really caught my eye. Every Saturday I would stop at Anna’s stall, give her kisses and think some lucky person will become her human partner. In January, my 17 year old palomino leopard Appaloosa mare died suddenly and unexpectedly. It was very shocking and heartbreaking. I thought I would never find another mare that would ever come close to her. After the death of my mare, Sandy suggested I take a serious look at Anna. She was so friendly, quiet, with a soft, beautiful eye. Hard to believe that this equine creature was once in a potential “kill buyer ” situation at a sale barn.
I found the Front Range Equine Rescue adoption process to be uncomplicated and the adoption fees very reasonable. I wholeheartedly support the mission of FRER. I attended a fundraiser clinic with Debbie Bibb in Evergreen, CO two years ago and learned a great deal about FRER. I have a beautiful western pleasure prospect, a great trainer at Victory Hill Training Center and feel so blessed to be able to help in some small way.”
