Pikes Peak Range Riders Foundation
The non-profit Pikes Peak Range Riders Foundation was formed in 1998 to allow the Pikes Peak Range Riders to focus their charitable community activities. The initial years of the Foundation saw funds raised through auctions and events like West Fest, and then made contributions to several local organizations including the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA.
In 2001, the Foundation accepted the generous contribution of the land and facilities of Latigo from a few individual Range Rider benefactors. Since then, the 45 acre site has hosted youth events and activities, offered horse boarding facilities, and leased space for a variety of events. The Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center, a special needs equestrian program, operates from Latigo. Their facilities and land are a gift donated from the Foundation.
In 2009, the Foundation Board clarified the mission and prioritized the use of the facilities for youth events and activities. The youth activities are designed to have a western, agricultural and equine orientation. They include events like Day On The Range, 4-H, Colorado Jr. Rodeo Association, Winter Buckle Series, Little Britches Rodeo and the Pikes Peak Rangerettes.
We're a charitable foundation that is tax exempt under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service.
