Freedom Hooves' Facility

Freedom Hooves has closed. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Freedom Hooves existed to connect the healing power of the horse with the needs of the community. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the wonderful people in the Yampa Valley 2012 – 2020. 
“Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls, they give us hope.”
Toni Robinson
"In riding a horse, we borrow freedom."
Helen Thompson
“From horses we may learn not only about the horse itself but also about animals in general, indeed about ourselves and about life as a whole.”
George Gaylord Simpson
Joy and comfort are the smell of horses.


Freedom Hooves serves children, adults, families and even the elderly throughout the Yampa Valley in Northwest Colorado. Some of our participants have obvious disabilities, while many others have invisible struggles in life that cannot be easily noticed. We strive to enrich the mind, body and spirit so people may live their very best life.


Volunteers create the backbone of Freedom Hooves. Without their engagement and sharing of their most valuable resource of time, we would not exist. Volunteers serve many functions, from helping during lessons in the arena to decorating the unicorn or making phone calls. There is a place for everyone to serve.


In order to serve well and meet the needs of participants and horses, we are constantly in need of resources. From monetary gifts to donations of horses or hay, Freedom Hooves values all help. Together we can build a better society by fostering wholeness. Thank you for considering joining us in this work through your donation.

Amazing People

A small exceptional staff of 4-5 and an active Board of Directors, coupled with over 100 volunteers annually, create the foundation to meet the needs.
