About Us

Contributions enable us to rescue some horses at the auction as well as to provide for animals in need when we're contacted by state or local authorities. We will also take in some horses whose owners can no longer keep them. Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue will have contributors instead of members. Contributions of any amount will be greatly appreciated and used for the rescue and care of horses.

Rescue Equipment

As we mentioned last Spring, RMHR is very pleased to announce the ability to provide FREE rescue equipment for any organization or individual in Colorado who has the need. With the help of a grant from the Lauretta Boyd Charitable Trust and our wonderful major donors: Carole Kenney, Nancy Gooding, Sue Tinder, Harriet Weisenthal, Robyn Thurber, Bini Abbott, Heather Christie, Sally Larsh, Susie Stroh and Nancy Reed, we have been able to purchase several valuable and life-saving tools.

  • 2 complete sets of the Anderson Sling -- in 3 sizes! (Large, medium & foal/pony)
  • A "Glide" for dragging a recumbent (downed) horse out of a field or enclosure with extra slip sheets. The "Glide" can also be used to pull an animal into a trailer for transport to a hospital or similar care facility
  • A portable Dura-Pic Tripod for suspending an animal in a sling.
  • Helicopter sling rescue equipment.
  • Gel pads to protect from pressure sores.
  • Leg Supports

Our slings have been used by vet clinics and even to rescue a horse who fell into a swimming pool. We have also suspended "Lucky", the life size training model provided by Shirley Hoffman of Horses Forever, in the rescue sling as an exhibit at the Colorado Horse Expo and Halloween for Horses. We will continue to use "Lucky "in future seminars/expos to help train vets, firemen, owners and any other rescue personnel interested in the use of the rescue equipment.
