Summit Valley Horse Center


Partnering & Collaboration

If you, your family, your employer, volunteer organization, or your place of worship is interested in collaborating with us, please call 970-389-8496 or click here to send us your requirements.


Summit Valley Horse Center partners with many organizations in our Community providing educational programs with horses that are therapeutic and transformative. Clients who come to SVHC for healing have a variety of life challenges, such as illness, PTSD, abuse, mental and physical disabilities or to meet community service requirements for school or the Summit County Courts.

The benefits of structured and safe programs with horses are immediately apparent for the participants, the volunteers who assist, and for the horses who are rehabilitated. Your organization can benefit by providing your clients with another venue for experiential education that produces new life skills and healing.

Some of the organizations who partner with us include:

  • Boy Scouts

Rescue Organizations

Colorado horse rescue organizations with whom we collaborate struggle to handle the growing number of deserving animals entrusted to their care. Our foster care program, available from May through October, allows rescues to send their horses to our ranch for rehabilitation while participating in our educational programs. This in turn enables the rescues to handle more horses and increases the chances of their horses’ being adopted.

We are extremely grateful to the rescue organizations with whom we partner currently, or have partnered with in the past, or who support our programs in other ways. They include:


Many corporations, foundations, and local governments show their appreciation for the impact our programs have on their employees, families, local communities and their constituents by donating their services or by funding us through grants. These include:

  • Alpine Bank
  • Breckenridge Grand Vacations Gives
  • Colorado UnwantedHorses Association (CUHA)
  • Hogan Roofing
  • Sarah Hoiles Foundation
  • SSF Foundation (Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate)
  • Summit County Rotary Club
