CANTER Colorado is an all volunteer organization that helps retiring race horses find new starts after their racing career ends. In partnership with the local racetrack, Arapahoe Park, CANTER Colorado works with the horsemen and women at the track every week during the racing season, taking listings of horses from trainers on the backside in an effort to advertise available horses with prospective buyers. In addition to the listing service, CANTER Colorado launched an aftercare program, offering race owners the opportunity to donate horses directly to the organization. CANTER then works with a team of volunteers and equine and veterinary professionals to rehabilitate and retrain these horses before placing them in long-term, non-racing homes.
