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!
 
LOKI  He is a 14.2 hand ,18 year old Columbian Paso Fino bay gelding with a wonderful personality, no vices, good health, a little fat right now. Extremely smooth,has 5 easy gaits, very sure-footed on the trail, does not spook on the trail either.Has never reared,kicked,bitten.My doc says no more barn dust for me (I am 85) so no more riding. He is registered and born in Florida, has all his papers. I would like to get $1,500 for him and another $500 for his comfy adjustable saddle and other tack. But a good and loving home is more important, so price is negotiable. Please contact Patty Nixon for more information. 970-390-7456

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.

GIVEN  He was born in 2002 or 2003. He has been used for packing and riding, but does require an experienced rider. He developed a knee problem a few years ago and just cannot handle the mountain where I live anymore. Please contact mhaskett@jmloutfitters.com for more information.

SARAH  She is in her 20’s and gentle. She can be used for kids, but they should have a little knowledge 1st. I have used since 2007 and she had always done great on any ride. Please contact mhaskett@jmloutfitters.com for more information.

HOLLYWOOD  Eleven year old registered buckskin, was broke to ride but haven't ridden in 3 years. Has one knee that has arthritis, will only flex about half way. Was left a stud until 4 years old. Has bucked me off a few times but mostly because he is herd bound to one of my mares. He was at a trainer for one month and never bucked for her. The knee doesn't seem to bother him. He does not limp or hold it up. He does not like his feet handled. I can get the front done with a bucket of oats but the back I can't. Just to be around, he is in your pocket, very curious horse so always checks out what you are doing. So friendly he gets in the way sometime. Contact Wally for more information at glassdwg@aol.com

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.

Free to a good home, please contact Julia at greatrex.julia@gmail.com
