The Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses (CANTER) is now offering its nationally recognized service to the horsemen in Colorado. CANTER is a fully accredited non-profit organization dedicated to helping racehorses find new careers after the finish line. Nationwide, this free program has helped over 10,000 horses transition from racing since its inception in 1997.

CANTER volunteers will be available immediately at Arapahoe Park to offer free sales listings, including photography, to owners and trainers looking to move their ex-racehorses into second careers. Listings may be viewed by the general public through the nationally recognized website “We’ve never had a formal program in Colorado to bridge the gap between racehorse and sport horse,” says Jamie Girouard, Executive Director of CANTER Colorado, “we’re thrilled to bring this free service to the horsemen at Arapahoe Park to help connect owners and trainers with Colorado horse people who are interested in purchasing off the track horses.”

People interested in purchasing off the track horses can view listings at CANTER Colorado’s website  or visit the facebook page Trainers or owners who would like to list a horse for sale should contact Jamie Girouard at   For further information on the CANTER program, please contact Nancy Koch at or (330) 697-4460.

Welcome to our website!

We have consolidated Colorado Horse Council (CHC), Colorado Horse Development Authority (CHDA) and the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo (RMHE) into one site making it much easier for you to find the information that you are looking for. Each department has it's own section and organized with it's own content. We hope this new platform makes your experience on our site much more enjoyable!

To learn more about each organization, you can visit our About page.

The Equine City Hall is also part of our organization and from time to time you may be sent back & forth between the two sites.
