About Our Rescue Group:

Fresh Start Horse Rescue is an all-volunteer, family-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a Colorado nonprofit corporation. We have been rescuing horses since 2005.
Our mission is to provide a fresh start for horses that are unwanted, abused, in danger of sale for slaughter or simply in a situation where their loving owners can no longer take care of them. We rescue, rehabilitate, re-socialize, care for, train and find permanent homes for all breeds of horses, and we have a special interest in abused mustangs.

Come Meet our Pets:

Horses can make good pets for the right people. Visitors are welcome by appointment only. Contact us through the form on our Web site, by e-mail, or by phone.

Our Adoption Process:

Fees: negotiable from $200 to $1500 or hay donation of equivalent value. Minimum fee: $200
Adopters must visit and interact with their chosen horse at Fresh Start at least three times before adoption. Adopter is responsible for pre-purchase vet check if desired. Adopter must sign a statement of commitment and provide veterinary and personal references. Fresh Start must conduct a site visit prior to adoption. Adopters should expect follow-up calls and/or visits from Fresh Start volunteers.
Detailed information is on our Web site.

Why should you adopt?

horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
