 Natural horse life Blue Rose Ranch, Inc., a horse rescue and adoption facility, is located in southeastern Colorado on beautiful Bear Creek, two miles north of Springfield on US Hwy 287. At Blue Rose Ranch, we are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and training of unwanted horses. Our mission is to find or provide "forever" homes for unwanted horses, and will also sanctuary horses, as necessary, to their natural or merciful death.
Natural horse life

Horses come to us from many sources: ex-race horses and rodeo stock, those confiscated by authorities due to neglect, and horses where owners, for a myriad of reasons, find themselves no longer able to care for their horses.

Blue Rose Ranch operates on two properties. The “Main Ranch” houses the ranch office, training arenas, incoming and hospital areas, large corrals, hay storage, tack rooms, youth club house, and 162 acres of pasture. The outlying “Canyon Ranch” has hundreds of acres where horses have ample opportunity to roam and just enjoy being horses. At Blue Rose Ranch, each horse receives the highest standard of care including: all necessary veterinary care, farrier care, covered shelter, fresh water, feed (including special dietary feed as necessary), handling and training. In addition to being a horse ranch, Blue Rose Ranch is a working farm, growing a portion of the hay needed for the horses.

Blue Rose Ranch, Inc. has developed a comprehensive program we call Natural Horse Ranching. It begins with a natural approach to horse training which establishes trust and safety between horse and handler. We combine this training with natural horse life, where horses live and interact in herds, with the opportunity to roam and graze the ranch. This natural horse life creates an environment that is healing to horses who have been abused and neglected. These two combine to produce Natural Horse Ranching, which allows the horse the speediest and most lasting recovery to maximize the horse's potential.

Blue Rose ranch, Inc. also provides an outreach to the community. While volunteers are vital to the success of the horse rescue, those who come to help care for the horses testify of the therapeutic value they gain working with our horses. Kids and teens are invited to join us at the ranch in our summer programs, where they learn about horses and receive riding lessons in exchange for volunteer work. They have fun while learning
