Color: Bay
Temperament: Misty is an elegant mare, of quality build and with a gentle temperament. She is a very smart and sensible mare who learns quickly and has a terrific amount of try. She is both a kind and generous spirited horse and has a stellar work ethic. She is polite on the ground and an equal pleasure to ride with smooth, comfortable and balanced gaits!

Training and Accomplishments: Misty is versatile, talented and proven in many different arenas. She was trained by Sherman Tegtmeier for reining and was campaigned in her third and fourth year in Novice and Amateur classes. She has points in each, which can be viewed on the AQHA website. She was then a working ranch horse as a 5 year old and then became a broodmare for five years producing four foals. In 2013 she was put in training with Rae Lynn Gilmore who showed her in reining and trained her for ranch horse versatility. Misty was judged the Supreme Champion Horse at the 2014 Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic after competing in conformation, ranch trail, boxing, open roping, and ranch rodeo. Misty has most recently received natural horsemanship based, partnership and western dressage training with Emily Johnson of Mountain Rose Horsemanship.

Misty is currently showing in the 2015 season and thus far has shown with success in english dressage at Training Level and has most recently put forth more exceptional competition rides in Western Dressage at the Basic Level.

Gender: Mare
Age: 10 (DOB: May 23, 2003)
Size: 14.2 H
Color: Black Bay

She has the stunning elegance of an Arabian in appearance, with the laid-back, amicable and reliable disposition more common to the Quarter Horse type breeds. Charm is a smart, willing and highly trainable mare and is a pleasure to work with due to her sweet and social nature, sound mind and agreeable temperament. She is polite, confident and eager on the ground and light and responsive under saddle. Charm has had the same owner since she was 14 months old and was started as a 3-year old, using natural horsemanship methods. Since then she has enjoyed a diverse education being ridden in the arena, showpen and on the trails. She has attended a Buck Brannaman clinic and more recently, received a couple of months of trail training with Emily Johnson of Mountain Rose Horsemanship. Charm has also found success in the show arena with purple and blue ribbon wins in Western Dressage classes with a youth rider. Charm clips, baths and loads, is calm with the farrier & vet and is an easy keeper. This mare would be best suited for a teen or small adult of high beginner or above skill level. Charm will offer loads of try to a human partner who is kind, considerate and who rides with an empathetic hand.

She has great hooves and has never worn shoes. In the summer she is trimmed every 6-7 weeks and in the winter every 8-9 weeks.

Stella - An Elegant Khemosabi Arabian Mare with Smooth Gaits

SOLD. Congratulations to Sheri of Gretna, NE!

Breed: Arabian
Gender: Mare
Age: 9
Size: 14.3 H
Color: Black Bay
Stella is an extremely willing, sensible and responsive mare. She is very sensitive, light, and does well at liberty. Stella is out of a Khemosabi son and Raffon granddaughter, and has a great temperament. She is currently in Natural Horsemanship training and has recently discovered a love for the trail and trail obstacles. She is confident going out on her own and is not herd bound. She has also been previously schooled through 2nd level dressage. Stella has smooth gaits and is an elegant mover. She is great for the farrier and does well barefoot. She is also easy to clip, bathe, and trailer. Stella loves variety of experiences and would do best with a confident, relaxed, experienced horseperson with a light touch. Her price has been greatly reduced to sell quickly, but only to the right person. Please call for or more information, photos, and video.
Medical History: Up to date on all shots and teeth recently floated. Trimmed regularly. She has some mild bone spavin in her hocks. She was recently injected for this and is doing well. She will probably need annual injections, but the vets at CSU assure me that she should be able to do any type of work if these are done annually. It has not gotten in the way of any of her training and I have found that she does best being worked at least 3-4 days a week.
Rider Experience: Intermediate to Advanced
Price: $4500
Location: Parker, CO

Isis - Colorado Horse Rescue

ADOPTED. Congratulations to Maureen of Erie, CO!

I'm here at CHR with my mom (Phoenix) and my little sister (Athena). When I arrived at CHR, I had a lot to learn in the human world. I had spent all of my life living in a fairly large herd of horses and not interacting with people. At first, I had real problems if I couldn't just be with my family. I've worked with Tabitha Farrar, and I've come a long way! She's really helped me become more independent and confident in myself. I've just recently gone into training with Emily Johnson of Mountain Rose Horsemanship Training, and I'm doing great! I really enjoy working with obstacles, and learning all there is to know about partnership with people.

Champ - Colorado Horse Rescue


I'm a cute boy who walks tall and struts his stuff. I don't remember if my name came from my personality or vice versa. I have done a fair number of activities in my life including English riding, trail riding, beginning dressage, and jumping, but my favorite by far is trail riding. I'm a comfy, smooth ride and I need a confident, fair and gentle rider because I'm sensitive and a tad reserved. I've just had three weeks of re-training with Emily Johnson of Mountain Rose Horsemanship Training and everything went very well. I really enjoyed being able to build a trusting bond with a human and find the security with a person that I need. Because of my size I will need either a small adult or child as a rider. Any children will need to be experienced, kind and easy-going. Just a head's up too that I did competition and showing with a young human in the past and it just didn't suit my personality or goals in life, so I'd rather be a pleasure horse. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

AGE: 17 / BREED: Quarter Pony X / GENDER: Gelding / HEIGHT: 13.1hh / RIDER EXPERIENCE: Intermediate / RIDING LIMITATIONS: None / FEE: $800

Norman - Colorado Horse Rescue

ADOPTED. Congratulations to Autumn of Greeley, CO!

I'm a cute little gelding with good conformation that came to CHR very withdrawn and emaciated from starvation, but that was years ago. Now I've grown up into an handsome,outgoing gentleman! My trainers call me smart, vibrant, engaged, inquisitive and as willing and good-minded as they come. I am so happy that I am well loved because I have a strong desire to please. I also have been told that I have smooth gaits and natural balance. I just like to move around and play in my body. This is a good life and I'm happy to be a part! I've even learned how to go along with standing tied and riding in a trailer. I don't mind being quiet for those things if it means I get to go out and have fun other times of the day. I have great potential in a number of disciplines including competitive trail, endurance, Westernaires or other athletic activity. I've been professionally trained by both Emily Johnson and Jason Patrick. You can read more about my training and see photos at the "Horses In Training" blog. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

Summer - Colorado Horse Rescue


When I came to CHR, I was 10 months pregnant and very hungry. People at CHR were worried that my baby might have some health problems due to my starvation. However, my little filly, Blossom, is just fine and has since been adopted! I have adjusted to life without her. I was well trained and would be suitable for a very lightweight rider. I'm out of shape and because I became fussy with mounting and riding, the folks at CHR started me on monthly chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. They are hoping that this behavior will be resolved with treatment. In the meantime, I'm doing groundwork instead. I'm friendly but very submissive around other horses so I would be happy with another mellow horse or two. I am a beautiful lady who would make a wonderful companion for both people and other horses!

SOLD. Congratulations to Leona of Longmont, CO!

Snickers is an 18 year old, Appaloosa mare who is a "been there, done that" kind of horse. She is good minded and very willing to form a deep connection with a human she trusts. She has been handled and ridden by an intermediate level, young rider and has demonstrated herself to be a safe and reliable teacher.

Eclipse - Colorado Horse Rescue

ADOPTED. Congratulations to Scott of Longmont, CO!

Eclipse is a stunning 8 year old, bay, Paso-cross gelding that has been fully rehabilitated from starvation and neglect. Eclipse is a exceptional horse who possesses all the right qualities to become your perfect partner. He has a sound mind and a gracious and willing attitude, as well as solid confirmation and fabulous movement! Eclipse is a sensitive horse who thrives with a human partner that can offer him solid and consistent leadership combined with empathetic understanding. He is green under saddle, but is an excellent learner who puts forth his best effort and has a strong desires to connect with a human leader. Eclipse would greatly benefit from continued education under saddle and therefore would be best suited for an advanced level rider that is open to support from a professional trainer as needed OR an adopter who would be willingly to progress his training with a professional. He was a stallion until the age of 7, so he does best in a herd of geldings. Eclipse is currently being ridden western, but could be a stellar riding horse in a wide variety of disciplines, including an out of this world trail horse! Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

Now that I am back at a good weight again I've joined the boys in the pasture and am happy as can be. I'm awaiting a riding evaluation with a trainer, so check in to see my progress!

Dixie - Colorado Horse Rescue


There's a number of pretty comical stories that I have to tell in my short history of three years. The first story happened even before I was born. An unknown matchmaker put my mother, a Belgian/Percheron cross, and my father, an Appaloosa/Mustang cross, together. I never found out if it was intentional or if it was a mistake, but that's of no consequence because I came out really darn cute! My previous owner also had a pretty silly habit of feeding me Pop Tarts as treats. I came to recognize the box and wrapper because, well, they tasted pretty good! All joking aside... I'm a superb find. I've been started under saddle, am incredibly level headed, and am a beautiful mover. They also tell me I'm a super fast learner. During my trip to the 2010 Rocky Mountain Horse Expo everything I encountered was brand new to me and no one would have ever guessed because I was so well adjusted.

Ransom - Colorado Horse Rescue


I will always be grateful to the folks here at CHR who rescued me from the livestock auction. Can you believe I was dumped off there when I was only 6 months old? I've grown up big and strong and have been started under saddle. I have a bit of a crooked knee but after the vet took radiographs, she said that I am a good candidate for monthly shots that will help keep my knee in good shape for many years to come. Now I'm being ridden regularly at all gaits and I've shown no signs of lameness. My trainers complement me by saying that I am a well balanced and comfortable ride. I will be suitable for pleasure riding but too much strenuous athletic activity such as jumping, dressage, or rodeo work may be too much for my knee. Please keep me in mind if you are interested in a nice young horse with a good disposition. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

AGE: 5 / BREED: Quarter Horse / GENDER: Gelding / HEIGHT: 16hh / RIDER EXPERIENCE: Trainer / RIDING LIMITATIONS: Pleasure riding only / FEE: $500.00

Cheyenne - Colorado Horse Rescue

ADOPTED. MRH is excited to announce the addition of the fabulous Cheyenne as a lesson horse in the Wholeness Through Horsemanship program! Read Cheyenne's story from tragedy to triumph here. View Cheyenne's thank you message to Colorado Horse Rescue as she shares about her new home here.

I'm a little famous around here for coming to CHR on Christmas Eve 2007 a victim of severe starvation . Our vet said I probably wouldn't make it through the next snow storm. Lots of news people have visited me and I'm happy to say that I've gained 300 pounds and have been able to join the herd in the pasture! I'm a very shy and sensitive gal who responds best to a quiet handler. I'm sound and healthy and have had trainers work with me to prepare me for riding. I accept a saddle, bridle, and rider very nicely. I am learning leg and rein commands to help me be the best partner I can be, as we head out on the trail together. I am very submissive in the pasture and show no aggressive behavior towards other horses so I'd make a super companion for another mellow horse. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

Shadow - Colorado Horse Rescue


I'm a big handsome guy that is looking for someone who loves spotted horses because I have lots of them! I am a nicely trained riding horse who can be ridden Western or English. I don't take a bit (I remember getting kicked in the mouth as a youngster) but I do just fine in a hackamore. I'm a bit out of shape and a little lazy since I don't get ridden very often but I still remember what to do. I have some mild navicular in my front feet but with good quality farrier care and proper shoeing, I am suitable for light riding. In fact, the vet says that exercise is good for my condition. I also have a bit of arthritis in my hocks so I take some medicine for that each month. Otherwise I'm in great shape. I get along great with other horses, and I love mares. A trainer who has worked with me says I have a fabulous mind, willing attitude and am very aware of my feet. I gathered from her affirming tone and kind pat that these were great qualities to have. If you think I might fit in to your family, I'd love to make you my new friend. I was recently featured on 9News. Check out my handsome self on video!

Martini - Colorado Horse Rescue

ADOPTED. Congratulations to Kari from Longmont, CO!

Why do they call me Martini? It could be my fun loving, convivial nature. I absolutely love to socialize with people. I also heard that I reminded someone of a chocolate martini because of my unique paint coloring. I don't know what a chocolate or a martini are, so I'll just take their word for it. For being so outgoing I sure do have a mysterious past. I was rescued by animal control after wandering loose and being hit by a car. My previous owner never came to claim me. My injuries were all healed up by the time animal control brought me to CHR and now I'm ready to find a home. I've been working with a trainer and am doing great in my lessons. It turns out that I know quite a bit about carrying a rider, but will need additional training to develop my skills further. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue.

HEALTH/BEHAVIORAL INFORMATION: Recovered from hind leg injury; can be a little pushy.

AGE: ~5 / BREED: Grade / GENDER: Mare / HEIGHT: 14.0hh / RIDER EXPERIENCE: Advanced / RIDING LIMITATIONS: none

Killian - Colorado Horse Rescue


Did you know that I'm the rescue's fanciest Thoroughbred? My grandfather was the great Northern Dancer and there are many other famous racehorses in my family tree. I came to the rescue with a mild stifle injury but after after several years of hanging out in the pasture here, our vet cleared me for rehabilitation under saddle and I moved to my foster home for training. A wonderful community of people have come together to bring me back into work and provide me with the rehab and training I need. I move beautifully at all gaits and show an amazing capacity to learn. I'm being ridden at all gaits 2-4 times a week and after 60 days I'm still completely sound! I used to get a little fussy about being away from my pasture mates but that has been remedied with consistent handling. Now they call me docile! Everyone's so impressed! I am currently in foster care and available for adoption appointments. Available for adoption through Colorado Horse Rescue. Video.

HEALTH/BEHAVIORAL INFORMATION: benefits from joint supplements and requires good quality shoeing; currently in off-site training

Binder - A True Saint of a Horse

SOLD. Congratulations to Diane from Louisville, CO!

There are not words generous enough to describe a horse like Binder! Binder is a 22 year old bay, grade QH gelding. He is as kind as they come and is both wise and discerning. Binder has been the predominant lesson horse in the MRH horsemanship program and is now being retired from lessons so as to be able to enjoy life with his very own human. Binder is an exceptional teacher as is gracious, willing and very forgiving. This is the perfect horse to build your confidence and share your life with.

Charlie - As Gentle as They Come

SOLD. Congratulations to Morgan from Denver, CO!

Charlie is an honest, dependable horse with a huge heart and an excellent mind. He is both patient and willing and therefore is a great teacher. He is a big and elegant mover with a light, ground covering stride. He was on the racetrack in his younger years and then spent time on a working cattle ranch. He is a wonderful trail mount, but is just as content to be with you in an arena. This sweet gelding can't wait to pour his heart out to you!
