Our Story

The thought of rescuing horses in need came from Dennis and Sue Pratt in 2004 as they were developing their personal property up the Troublesome Valley near Kremmling, Colorado. Dennis was raised on his uncle's ranch in Idaho and Sue was a city girl raised in Wyoming who always wanted to have a horse of her own.

Structures and corrals were developed, the Rescue's Non-Profit status was obtained in 2005 and horses began arriving. With much hard work and desire to provide a home for horses, the Rescue is what it is today. 

Our horses

Rescues come from Colorado and Wyoming, young and old, able and disabled.  The Rescue has a capacity of 25 horses, each having an individual 12' X 12' indoor stall, outside runs, access to the 120' X 200' indoor arena and 120 acres to run free upon.  A volunteer program enables the horses to be cared for and trained on an individual basis.
