For this week at least, the Santa Fe Equestrian Center is home for the majority of the Los Alamos horses that are kept at North Mesa Stables.
Others are being housed at Grandabon Farm in Lamy and the Santa Fe Rodeo Grounds.
Getting the horses evacuated was a difficult task.
Los Alamos resident Lisa Reader and many other horse owners had been through the Cerro Grande Fire so they knew what to expect.
“During the Cerro Grande Fire, they did not let us back in but this year we were able to make numerous trips,” Reader said. “Last time, the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Posse helped out and took the rest of the horses out which we were thankful for but we had no idea which horse went where.”
