Here are stories of just some of our horses, and how their lives have changed since they arrived at the Sanctuary
The vast majority of horses at the Sanctuary have been rescued from public lands or abusive situations. And there are some who are also rare breeds. Once you’ve come to know them, consider becoming their sponsor.
Our Herd Families
The majority of the horses that range free at the Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary are part of a herd or bachelor band. Some herds arrived together. Others formed after they arrived. Still others found new family members among horses already residing at the Sanctuary. But no matter how they formed, each herd is a closely-knit family or social group, with each member assuming specific duties and responsibilities, and all share a very deep bond.
Our Ambassador horses are animals who have special attributes: They are rare breeds or purest of bloodlines or they’re world famous. Together they serve as living examples of the nobility and majesty of America’s wild horse.
