Spirit Wind Horse Rescue
Spirit Wind Horse Rescue has rescued, trained and re-homed at least 300 horses since our inception in 2006. It all started when two friends (Beth and Vee), went to the local livestock auction in Delta CO. By the end of the auction they had rescued three mares from being purchased for slaughter and six puppies.

This 501c(3) organization has no paid staff, is volunteer driven and relies on donations.
We are currently caring for approximately 40 equines which are housed on the respective home properties owned by the two women who started it all.
Filling a great need
We are the only horse rescue in Delta County. Because this county is very rural, it results in many local horses in quick need of a new home. Without our work these horses would likely be taken to auction and purchased for slaughter. We have also rescued numerous BLM mustangs over the years.
Helping people who can
no longer provide care
Spirit Wind Horse Rescue has said yes to taking in the horses of numerous residents who are aging or have passed. There are also those who have fallen on hard times and can no longer provide adequate care. There have even been dude ranch riding programs that have had to relinquish horses.
Our work helps these people, but more importantly it saves the lives of these special equines.
We're committed to providing our horses with training, in order to make them more likely to be adopted to forever homes. If they are unlikely to be adopted, we provide life-long sanctuary for them.
While we are small, we are efficient. We have provided a safe landing, new beginnings and when needed, life-long care and safety for over 300 equines.
