Today, an increasing number of Colorado's horses face an uncertain future. Economic pressures, legislative changes, and shifts in the perception of the role and place of the horse in modern society have resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of horses whose current owners are no longer willing or able to care for them. They are Colorado's unwanted horses, a status that often results in neglect, abandonment and abuse.

To learn more about how to help and resources available from the Colorado Unwanted Horse Alliance, please visit:

On a national level, the Unwanted Horse Coalition's mission is to reduce the number of unwanted horses and to improve their welfare through education and the efforts of organizations committed to the health, safety, and responsible care and disposition of these horses. Their web site is:
