The Summit Valley Horse Center Ranch
NOTICE: The Summit Valley Horse Center is in compliance with all Summit County Public Health "Business Social Distancing Protocol" regulations.
The Summit Valley Horse Center offers a safe place for rescued horses where they partner with us during their training, empowering our volunteer staff, children and adults, in the development of their leadership skills and emotional self-awareness. Our volunteer participants are enriched and empowered in the achievement of their life goals through the experience of developing a therapeutic and spiritual relationship with the horses being trained.
Who We Are
SVHC helps build self-leadership skills in your children and yourself through experiential programs with rescued horses. Our vision is to transform your life through carefully structured human and equine interactions.
These types of experiential programs with horses have been shown to have a longer-lasting and deeper impact because of the horse’s positive effects on human thoughts and emotions.
Our volunteer training will help expand your awareness about horses, and help you achieve greater success in your life through communication, collaboration, and leadership training, in an environment of love, kindness and compassion.
What we do:
- We offer personal growth for your children and yourself while working with horses
- We provide leadership awareness volunteer training that will improve skills in your relationships and life
- We provide a place to learn about ranch management, environmental sustainability, along with a working knowledge of horse psychology, rehabilitation and training
- We provide a safe and healthy refuge for horses in a beautiful ranch environment
Where do we do it:
On the former Hawk Hill 80 acre ranch on State Route CR 9 thirteen miles north of the town of Silverthorne. This ranch, which is leased from The Kilgore Companies, was a former horse training ranch for up to ninety horses. We have many fenced grazing paddocks, a large hay barn, three round pens, an exercise paddock with an obstacle course, tack area paddock and large barn with interior stalls, kitchen and tack room.
