Welcome to CANTER Colorado
CANTER Colorado has 2 dedicated programs helping retired race horses.
Our Trainer Listed Program: The listing program is a free service offered to the horse men/women at the track who want to sell their retiring race horse. Volunteers work closely with trainers/owners on the backside of Arapahoe Park taking pictures, videos, and biographies of any horses for sale. The information is posted on our website and promoted to a national pool of equestrian buyers. CANTER is not involved in the sale.
Our CANTER Owned Program: As an additional service, we offer owners/trainers the opportunity to donate their horse to our aftercare program. CANTER assumes all ownership and financial responsibility of the donated horse. Working with a dedicated team of veterinarians, farriers, professional trainers, and volunteers, each horse is provided with a customized plan of action that includes: relaxation, rehabilitation, and retraining services. When ready, CANTER finds new homes and careers suitable for each horse based on their potential, needs, or limitations. Horses are sold with a CANTER adoption contract after thoroughly screening potential buyers. Our program ensures each horse obtains the marketable skills they need to find a new home and career.
CANTER Colorado has officially been accredited by TAA! This means that we have met the highest level of industry standards for Thoroughbred care, operations, rehabilitation, retraining, and re-homing services. We are proud to be the only accredited thoroughbred organization in Colorado!
