Basic Horse Care and 1st Aid May 19, 2018!

We are excited to offer another clinic at Mountain Valley Horse Rescue to continue to develop additional horsemanship skills! This clinic will take place on May 19, 2018 from 2-5 pm at Mountain Valley Horse Rescue.

Dr. Silvia Stocker will present on the basics of horse care and 1st aid. Participants will then be sent out to apply their new skills including taking vitals and even some basic bandaging of our rescue horses.

We are encouraging all MVHR volunteers to attend this clinic for FREE!

For those of you that are not part of our volunteer program (yet) or are just looking to deepen your skills, the cost of this clinic is $25.

Summer Camp

Summer 2018 Mountain Valley Horse Rescue Horse Heroes Summer Camp! 

Our Horse Heroes Summer Camp, allows campers to build connections with their “own” rescue horse as well as a riding horse. This 4-day program includes the development of horsemanship skills along with either a riding lesson or a trail ride (lessons on Tues. & Thurs.; trail rides on Wed. and Fridays).

Through their time with the horses, kids will also develop a sense of R.E.S.P.E.C.T (Responsibility, Empowerment, Stewardship, Perseverance, Empathy, Cooperation and Trust). These values will be reinforced with daily activities.


Limit of 12 campers each day and all campers must be 8 years or older.

Program days Tuesday- Friday and are from 9am-4 pm (due to the community interest in Eagle County, MVHR will offer a pick up and drop off in Wolcott at 8:30am and 4:30pm)

High School Rescue Club

Mountain Valley Horse Rescue (MVHR) is excited to provide high school students with the opportunity to get more involved in our rescue efforts. This includes gaining a deeper understanding of horse knowledge (general, horsemanship and riding) while building the leadership skills necessary to help advocate for the over 6,000 unwanted, abandoned and/or abused horses in Colorado!

This club is free to youth that can make a year-long commitment to MVHR. This club is kicked off with a week long leadership retreat at the ranch June 5-8th. Students are then required to assist with one summer camp session, monthly service days and the development of a fundraising/outreach campaign.  

An application for Rescue Club can be obtained by sending us an inquiry form using the"Learn More" button below

School Programs

Mountain Valley Horse Rescue offers whole classes the opportunity to come out to the ranch!
Groups work on communication, teamwork and leadership as they interact with our rescue horses in a variety of settings including learning how to lead horses in the round pen. Class visits include four rotations throughout the day- round pen work; service; scavenger hunt/team building initiative; and craft.

  • Vail Valley Homeschool Programs
    We are excited to offer the Homeschool community the opportunity to come together at the rescue monthly. While kids 6- high school develop horsemanship skills they are also gaining a sense of responsibility and empathy for our rescue horses as wells practicing problem-solving and leadership skills.

  • Service Groups
    If a full day program does not fit within your class schedule, contact us for a variety of service opportunities for groups at the rescue. Students will still have the opportunity to get to know our horses and will develop relationships with the horse of their choice as they complete service projects around the ranch.
