Provide a Haven of Hope


Imagine enjoying life, freedom to go wherever you please with those you love most.  This stallion had a family.  He had friends.  He had his freedom. 


He lost everything the day the helicopters chased him through his home in the Sulphur Springs Herd Management Area in Utah.  He was trapped, confined.  The next 2 years of his life would be spent in holding pens – no freedom to run or feel safe within his home rangeland.  Essentially, he was in perpetual quarantine.


You can be a part of restoring hope and supporting freedom for the horses at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary!  Donate today to help us provide a haven of hope for America’s wild horses!
