All of our animals are non-releasable. Some are rescues from people who had them as pets and realized they do not make good pets. Some are rescues from the wild who were injured or orphaned. Others were born in captivity. We strive to keep them all content and healthy.

Summer Horseback Trail Riding - All trail rides are guided by an experienced wrangler that will get you set up on your horse and lead you through the beautiful scenery of Colorado. We have several very gentle horses that are suitable for children and first time riders. We offer half hour and one hour rides. The trail passes through a meadow landscape with rolling hills and scattered trees.
