Join us for a unique getaway and RETURN to FREEDOM in the company of America’s Wild Mustangs.
During this wonder-filled encounter you will experience the joy of creating artistic expressions as a doorway to communicating with horses as sentient beings.
Sandra Wallin and Kim McElroy will guide you in fun and creative ways to connect with your intuitive nature and the wild beauty of each herd. Using the language of art, which is uniquely your own, you will be given ways to interpret the feelings and visions of your equine encounters.
RTF Founder, Neda DeMayo, will lead a Wild Horse Walk to share the stories and wisdom of the wild horses and the sanctuary’s efforts to save them.
During Drawn to Wild Horses you will experience horses in ways you’ve always dreamed of. At Return to Freedom the wild horses live harmoniously in natural herds. They are accustomed to the presence of humans so if you are gentle and centered you can get close enough to hear them snort and to see the sparkle in their eyes… yet a sudden move will send their wild spirits flying across the field. Encountering horses in this beautiful setting will take your spirit on a journey of discovery and renewal.
