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.

From Purchase to Performance

The world of horse buying and ownership is as daunting as it is large. With so many options, choices, opinions, and methods, it’s hard to find a clear path that guides both first-time horse buyers and long-term horse owners towards success. Colorado Horse Rescue prides itself on being the go-to place for equine learning. From Purchase to Performance educates horse buyers on the “ins and outs” of selecting the right horse, and the secrets to keeping it happy and healthy. It is also a clinic for seasoned horse owners to better educate themselves on equine husbandry, and the equine world in which we all coexist. This clinic is engaging, interactive, and a great way to get involved in our local equine community. Whether you want a horse or already have one, this is a wonderful opportunity to expand your knowledge!

Bring your own lunch, there will be a short break mid-day.

This clinic is part 1 of 3 in The Path to Equine Ownership series. Register for any clinic you like, all courses are independent and you do not have to attend the first in order to attend the later two. However, receive a 15% discount when you register for the full 3-clinic series prior to March 25th!

Demystifying Equine Behavior

Part two of our Guide to Equine Ownership series is all about breaking down equine behavior. From the normal to the abnormal, CHR trainer and Clinician Sarah Hofkamp has made it her life’s mission to help better educate the community on how to interpret equine behavior. This clinic is designed to help humans learn the complex language of the horse, and how to adapt that language to practical communication between human and horse. This clinic is both lecture-based and hands-on.

Please bring your own lunch, paper and pencil/pen, and appropriate barn wear.

Unleash the Leader Within: The First Conversation

When horses and humans interact, the relationship often goes one of two ways. Either the human takes the responsibility of leader and both human and horse share a bond of respect and partnership, OR the horse takes responsibility of leader and it becomes a seemingly one-sided relationship of chaos and frustration. These are extreme examples of how the game often plays out, with reality being a little less dramatic than either end of the spectrum. Unleash The Leader Within is an eye-opening and interactive experience for horse owners and horse lovers alike to have their very first conversation with a horse in the language of horse! Take the stress out of equine communication by becoming the leader your horse has always wanted you to be.

Each participant will have a one-hour private session with CHR Trainer and Clinician, Sarah Hofkamp. You must contact Sarah at (720) 494-1414 x 2205 prior to registration to set up your time slot.
