HOW YOU CAN HELP

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.      


SPONSOR A HORSE

 FORCED TO DIE | Each year, 100,000+ Horses who are purposefully-bred, domesticated, trained and trusting are led from their stalls at racetracks, show stables, lesson barns, summer camps, backyards, and even elite breeding stables to begin a unspeakable journey to slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico. It is estimated that 20% are Thoroughbreds. When they step onto a scale to be priced for meat no one cares about their age, accolades, or where they came from. We do.

Together, we can stop this madness

OUR MISSION: Unbridled Thoroughbred Foundation (Unbridled), is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to saving the lives of at-risk Thoroughbred horses from the modern slaughter pipeline. We believe that every horse is worthy of compassion and protection from harm. Each horse at Unbridled is respected as an individual with their own unique mental, physical and emotional needs and proclivities. We allow their personality, history, and natural preferences to dictate how we can aid in facilitating their best and most enjoyable natural life. We transition and re-home suitable horses through adoption, and we provide sanctuary for senior and special needs horses. For any horse in our care who is terminally ill or injured, we facilitate a dignified, gentle, and peaceful end-of-life passage. Our unique philosophy of equine care and recognition of the moral status of equine is our true passion and the ethos that guides all of our work.
