Recently, CHRN became the recipient of the Horse Plus Humane Society, Full Circle of Life Shelter Grant and have been featured on the YouTube series, Horse Rescue Heroes! This extraordinary opportunity included being mentored by Horse Plus Humane Society. When CHRN learned about GVHR, they decided to pay if forward by partnering with GVHR on this event so they can learn and grow.

Grand Valley Horse Rescue, located in Western Colorado, launched on Halloween 2020, by a group of 8 children, ages 6 to 11, with parental support. Their mission is to rescue horses and train them into youth performance horses, to provide affordable access to horses for the children of the community and to construct an equine cross-country course so that individuals in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah can pursue their Olympic dreams.

Even though GVHR was started by and is being operated by children, it is having great success in that youth volunteers have increased 300% and there are six horses on the waiting list. Therefore, to better serve the needs of the community GVHR has been investigating purchasing its own property and needs 240 monthly sponsors at $22 per month to move forward with the purchase.. Please become a monthly sponsor!
