Wild Heart Sanctuary is delighted to have visitors who are interested in learning more about the plight of the wild Mustangs. We also invite small groups to participate in Experiences such as Horse Journey Yoga and special retreats and workshops. While the Mustangs at the sanctuary are gentle, they are still wild horses and subject to their basic instincts. The sanctuary takes precautions for the safety of its visitors. We do, however, require all visitors to read and sign a waiver.
Waiver & Release
Wild Heart Sanctuary founder Sonya Richins produced the documentary Mestengo, which was viewed at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. It is passionate effort to clear the air and put all of the facts surrounding the wild American Mustang before the people of the world. The story of injustice will astound and infuriate you as the details unfold in vivid cinematography before your eyes. How did we let this happen?
Though it has been over a decade, the film's message is still the same, just the numbers have changed. As of 2013 there were over 50,000 wild Mustangs in government holding pens and less then 20,000 running free in the wild.
Watch the trailer to the left, request the 20-minute documentary below, learn about and feel the injustice, then act.
Healing Power of Horses
Sonya Richins has traveled across America filming footage of how horses are healing the human race. She has filmed both the scientific and the unexplainable healing power of horses. Please view the rough cut to the left and discover the transformative gifts horses share with humans.
We are seeking funding for post-production to finish this documentary. The message is inspiring and will help garner support for saving the wild Mustangs.
If you are interested in providing funding and/or post-production facilities, please reach out to us on our Contact Us page.
The Horses Voice
The video clip to the left is a teaser for a reality documentary series called The Horses Voice. We are seeking funding to continue this project with the goal of being picked up by a network for a weekly series.
The intent of the series is to visit a new horse and its caretaker each week along with an animal communicator to see what happens.....very interesting, surprising and entertaining. Turns out, horses have a lot to say!
Such a series would expose more people to magic of horses and, perhaps, get them interested in the ongoing brutal conditions those in the wild and in captivity suffer at the hands of humans.
