Get Involved!

Throughout the year, Colorado Horse Rescue hosts fun and exciting events for all ages. We also offer a variety of educational classes and clinics for equine enthusiasts. Timing can vary from an afternoon or evening session, to a full weekend of hands-on horse activities. Please note that space is limited for most events and clinics. Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis.

For classes that involve hands-on work with horses, there may be an option to bring your own horse if you register as a participant. This is dependent upon space availability, requires proof of a negative Coggins and a health certificate, and may include additional fees for boarding. Please contact CHR to make arrangements.

Building Leadership Hoof to Hand

Part 3 of 3: Understanding the Horse Series
Building leadership is all our horses want out of us as their human caretakers. It is our responsibility to be the best leaders we can be for them. In this exciting, interactive groundwork clinic, learn what it takes to give your horse exactly what he needs. Have a difficult horse you feel you just can’t connect with, or a specific behavioral issue you would like to work through? Tough to trailer, bolts under saddle, naughty behavior on the ground, disrespectful? Almost all problems, even those in the saddle, can be solved on the ground first. This clinic will allow you to redefine your relationship with your horse, build his trust, and strengthen your leadership skills. We encourage you to bring your own horse to the clinic so that we can work on your specific needs together. Don’t have a horse? No problem, CHR can provide you with an equine partner so you can start by learning what it takes to be a positive leader.

2 duplicate sessions will be hosted; participation space has SOLD OUT! Auditors are still welcome to register.

All horses outside of CHR are required to have updated vaccination records and a negative Coggins within the last 12 months.
