Wild Horse Advocacy
America’s wild horses need our help more than ever.
The wild horse is an iconic symbol of freedom and, in my opinion, the perfect spirit animal for the wild woman, the one in touch with her primal self. A beautiful, intuitive, powerful, yet nurturing spirit born to be free. Spiritually, wild mustangs will take you on an inner journey to discover and trust yourself, and claim your power.
How You Can Help:
There are many organizations involved in gentling and rehoming mustangs that operate off the support of donors. There are also a select few that seek to provide a sanctuary where the mustangs can stay wild. Check out Return to Freedom and The Wild Horse Rescue Center.
Currently, there are close to 50,000 wild mustangs and burros in government holding pens that are in need of a good home. You can adopt directly from the Bureau of Land Management, or find a gentled mustang through a mustang rescue or trainer.
Share information about what is happening with the mustangs through your social media network and local community. Awareness is always the first step toward meaningful change.
Sign the SAFE Act
Introduced in 2019, the Save America’s Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act seeks to permanently ban horse slaughter in the U.S. and make it illegal to transport horses out of the country for slaughter. Email, write, call, or tweet members of the U.S. House of Representatives urging them to enact this legislation.
