Our sanctuary, Wild Horse Canyon, in Caliente, Kern County, California, is a permanent natural-habitat home for some of our rescued mustangs. Wild Horse Canyon allows many of our mustangs, those who are un-adoptable or not well-suited to life in captivity, to live out their lives in an environment that is as close as possible to freedom on the range.

Wild Horse Canyon is the home of more than 275 rescued wild and domestic horses living on a combined 1000 acres in Kern County, California, and is the location of our Wild Horse Canyon Lodge and Headquarters.  The Lodge is a guest gathering place and a facility utilizing our wild horses in horsemanship and empowerment programs we call Wild Horse Journeys.

We continue to expand our sanctuary properties to make room for additional rescued horses that are not suitable for adoption.  It is here that horses with advanced age, injury, lameness, or pyschological trauma can live their lives in peace and harmony never to be in jeopardy of being abused, neglected or sent to slaughter.  Ever.

Prior to being released at our sanctuary, rescued horses are assessed for adoptability.  Those horses that are suited for a new home go through our training and placement program.  Those horses that need to go to sanctuary are on a long waiting list and earn their freedom as new land parcels in Wild Horse Canyon are acquired and fenced.

Lifesavers has a long term plan for moving all horses and activities from our Lancaster training facility to the natural habitat sanctuary in the mountains and canyons east of Bakersfield, California. This consolidation and re-location will ultimately save on overhead costs by combining all our resources, equipment, employees, and volunteers to one fabulous destination in Wild Horse Canyon.

The mock brochure below, although not a completely true representation of what is offered at Wild Horse Canyon, it remains our vision and inspiration. We continue with our plan to expand and build more guest programs where one day we will be able to distribute a brochure much like this with all the opportunities in it available to our guests.  At this time, we are about half-way there with amazing Journeys that feed your soul, fill your heart, and connect you with the spirit of wild horses.  See more under our Wild Horse Journey tabs.

Please help us make room at our sanctuary for additional horses by making a donation today in any amount that will be used to fence land we have recently purchased and to acquire more parcels that can be added to the sanctuary in the future.
