Truly Born To Be Wild

Return To Freedom. It sounds like a movie title, and maybe it is for an unrelated work of fiction, but for the American wild horse sanctuary known as Return to Freedom, the mission of preserving the threatened wild horses — animals that populate many of the dwindling remote areas of the western United States — is no film script. It’s very much a real-life struggle.

Based in California, RTF focuses its rescue efforts on the acquisition of land suitable for America’s fabled mustangs. Much of these horses’ free range consists of relatively cheap acreage, managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The process of growing a sizeable sanctuary has a long way to go, however.

In addition to alerting the general public to the events that the operation stages during the warmer periods of the calendar year, RTF’s website also hosts a small gift shop, featuring items whose purchases contribute funding toward RTF’s mission.

One of the coolest ways in which folks can lend a helping hand to Return To Freedom is through the donation of sanctuary upkeep supplies and horse care supplies. RTF greatly appreciates acquiring these staple implements, which assist in the day-to-day care of wild horses and their environment.

RTF takes great pains to maintain family structures among mustangs that it saves from euthanasia. The operation also distinguishes among the various breeds within wild horse populations, and is particularly sensitive towards horses of rare bloodlines.

Many folks may never actually end up seeing a mustang in its wild habitat. But, thanks to the people at Return To Freedom, all folks will always have the opportunity to do so.
