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



Star is an older Quarter horse mare who is in good shape. She has previously foundered but has recovered and is totally rideable. She has 3 easy gaits and very simple and safe to ride. This one would be perfect for the beginners or timid riders. Contact Kat for more information at



 Bandit is a 17 yo bay thoroughbred gelding standing at 16.2 hands. Is trained in both western and English disciplines, however he will need some time getting back into the swing of things and shaking the rust off!  In general, he is a very sweet boy, but can sometimes get a little nervous, so a confident rider would suit him best.  No lameness or sounds issues, despite his age he has the energy of a 10 yo.  Very good boy, always willing to please!  Free to a good home.  My number is 719-322-6370 and email is , however I respond to texts and calls much quicker!  Thank you!



Very smart, though not yet trained to ride.  Needs some diet management.  Loads well in trailer and stands still for vet and farrier.  In the round pen she is extremely attentive and has a strong desire to please. She responds best to slow, and gentle.

Please contact Meagan Ketterlin 970-318-0441 for more information about Sweetpea.



Dude horses

These handsome Belgians and cute riding horses have all worked for a living most of their lives, and are ready for retirement! Contact Brian at Maroon Bells Guide and Outfitter at for more information about these gentle horses!



I am looking to re-home my one eyed, hearing impaired 4 year old mare.  She does well in a herd and holds her own. She has a sweet misdemeanor and would benefit from more training of picking up her back hooves. She has been through obstacle courses used for ground work therapy for adults. I have trained her to walk with me w/o a halter and stop when I stop and she has been through desensitization obstacles, but still needs work with back feet due to her one eye and hearing impairment. She would also make a nice companion animal or pasture pet that loves carrots and scratches. Please contact Valerie for more information about Lady



Hi my name is Willoh! I am an in your pocket horse who loves people big or small! I’ve had a rough past being thrown around bc people see me as no good. I have a young heart and just want to go on rides but nobody seems to want to use me bc I’m lame. I am writing this letter to say I need to find a good home as a pasture mate or to a family who has little kids who will love me. I do not want to end up in a kill pen or in a stock sale bc I know my new owner will not want me anymore when they find out I am lame. 



Moqui needs a home where he can receive attention and love. With some groundwork and a few rides again from an experienced rider,  he could be used for some therapy and makes a good companion horse. Contact Ginny Harrington for more information





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.

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
