A GIFT FOR IJADA

​​PLEASE JOIN OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS FOR IJADA 


IJADA is 20-years-old. On November 4th we bailed her out of the Lone Star Kill Pen in Texas. Without our intervention she would have shipped into Mexico to be slaughtered.  


From what we know so far, she came through a livestock auction in Louisiana along with several other Thoroughbreds who were culled from the Guidry operation.  The other horses had individuals and rescues step up for their redemptionIJADA had no one. 


Unbridled is devoted to championing for older mares. They are the least likely to be saved off of the kill lots. Through the generosity of contributors we raised her bail money and have paid for her freedom ride to quarantine at Spirit Run in Gilmer, TX.  

We are in need of financial aid to assist with her quarantine ($750), veterinary care ($250), shipping to New York ($2,000), andmonthly sponsorship partners for her aftercare in Sanctuary. 

In New York, IJADA will join our teaching herd of sanctuary mares to introduce students to ‘who’ horses are, and to foster kindness and empathy through hands-on engagement. Thoroughbreds like IJADA have much life, light, and love to give. Our senior mares are the best teachers, and they melt even the the most calloused hearts into a new consideration of the who-ness of horses.

With each of the horses we have redeemed we have their individual stories in development to be included in a larger series of publications. We'd love to include you in IJADA's journey

With sincere thanks and gratitude for the generosity of your time and consideration for IJADA. 

XOXO, Susan.​​​​​​​

OUR MISSION: Unbridled Thoroughbred Foundation (Unbridled), is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to saving the lives of Thoroughbred horses who are at-risk of entering  the modern slaughter pipeline. We believe that every horse is worthy of compassion, respect, and protection from harm. Through advocacy and education Unbridled sheds light on the inherent value of horses and seeks to change the cultural view of Thoroughbreds as commodities to that of friends and companions with moral status, and valued as autonomous and  fellow sentient beings. 

The Thoroughbreds we redeem from the slaughter trade arrive in shock and trauma. The hell of enduring livestock auctions and kill pens takes a mental and physical toll.


With time and space, most regain their health, dignity,  and grace.  When they are ready, we work to find them loving homes.


For senior and special needs horses we offer a place to call home in Unbridled Sanctuary.
