Mountain Valley Horse Rescue helps every horse that we can, one horse at a time, and that includes horses who are not here at our ranch but still in need of a home. Below is a partial list of horses MVHR has been contacted about that are in need of homes, with the contact person for each horse listed. If you don't see what you're looking for, please contact MVHR for information about others we may know about that could be your new member of the family!
 
RIDER   Rider is an even tempered, reliable animal who is still learning to collect his long legs under him on steeper trails. However, he is very workable and agreeable for light level of use, mostly off the mountain and on flatter terrain or arena. Rider is being retired from the Forest Service due to an old injury that has become chronic. He can manage the pain through medication before and after use, according to the vet. It is not certain if he will recover or maintain over time. He is a wonderful choice for someone for companionship and occasional light riding. Contact Lydia at 970-217-8189   for more information.

LUCKY

This 20 year old is a registered thoroughbred, black point bay, broke to ride in open desert and round pen, but has never been on any more difficult trails. He is sound and has a slight deformity on one hoof from an old injury, but it never seems to bother. He is very laid back for his breed and has lots of personality. Contact Randi (970)254-8588

 

RAMBO

Rambo has chronic founder going on and needs recovery time before being ready for regular riding. He is a handsome, stout quarter horse type, who could be a lovely horse given the proper recovery and management. Contact Kat for more information at 1katfitz@gmail.com

MIDNIGHT

Midnight is about 12 to 13 years old. Current owners have had him for 2 years now. (Picture is from 2 years ago.) He had a stroke in September 2017 and can no longer do the work of a dude horse. Owner would love see him go to a good home and be a good companion. He is with our herd up in Walden, CO. He would need to be picked up from there.

DANTE

Looking for a home for my 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding. My reason for sale is that I recently moved to Atlanta, Ga for a job and Dante is still in Steamboat Springs, CO. I wish I could move him but I do not have the funds.

For a little background, Dante was imported from Grasberg, Germany in 2008. He comes from the sire Davignon and Dam Marina. Unfortunately, Dante experienced a suspensory injury in 2013 and is now retired.

That being said, Dante would be perfect for someone who wants a smooth horse to walk around or trail ride. His ground manners are perfect and he loves to please his rider. Dante would also be a great pasture mate as he gets along with all horses.

For Sale for $3500, please contact Julia at greatrex.julia@gmail.com
