Our sanctuary, Wild Horse Canyon, Twin Oaks, 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 200 rescued wild and domestic horses living on a combined 750 acres in Kern County, California, and is the location of our Wild Horse Canyon Lodge and Headquarters. The Lodge is a guest gathering place, a campground for horse and rider, and a healing facility utilizing our wild horses in equine assisted therapy for Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, Anxiety, Depression and Suicidal Ideation.
We continue to expand our sanctuary properties to make room for additional rescued horses that are unsuitable 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 kept at our Lancaster, CA facility where they 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.
Water conservation is a priority at both of our locations, the Lancaster facility and Wild Horse Canyon Sanctuary.
