Far View Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation (FVHRR) is an all-volunteer, community-based, organization dedicated to providing shelter, care, rehabilitation, and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses. FVHRR is committed to reducing the number of unwanted horses by providing community resources through equine education and interactive learning, providing a welcoming environment where equine and humans inspire and enrich each other.
Far View has rescued and rehabilitated more than 80 animals since its inception in 2010, 11 of those being within this past year alone. Creating opportunities for community involvement and education is a big part of the mission at Far View. Educational Clinics, Summer Rescue Camp & Horsemanship Fridays, and Read-To-A-Burro are just some of the programs available in Park and Summit Counties.
Far View Horse Rescue operates with four values at its core: rescue, rehabilitation, education, and placement. Their ultimate objective is to find adoptive and permanent loving homes for the horses. Each owner is carefully screened to ensure a healthy, mutually beneficial match is secured for both the horse and the owner. They seek long-term security and a positive experience for everyone involved in the adoption process.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) has been a long-time supporter of the Rescue, contributing both as a sponsor of several of the annual fundraisers as well as awarding grants for specific projects such as improved fencing, program support, and even organizing teams of BGV volunteers to help with hands-on daily chores and ongoing Rescue jobs. Supporters like BGV help ensure that this organization can provide high quality feed and supplementation, safe and adequate fencing, medical care, and more. Generous donors make it possible for the organization to do more in our communities; both in being able to take in more animals in need and expand educational offerings to the community.
Far View Horse Rescue offers a variety of events throughout the summer and welcomes volunteers to assist with all aspects of the organization. Volunteers are required to attend an orientation before starting.
