Return to Freedom

As a nation, we've done little to protect the Wild Mustang. The Wild Horse population is at its lowest point in history, and yet government roundups continue. Each year thousands of horses are removed from their indigenous range and evicted from public lands.

THE LAST ROUNDUP is the story of the Wild West and the struggle to preserve it. It is the story of liberty and the right to remain wild. It is the tale of a magnificent creature, the symbol of American spirit and freedom, and its uncertain future.


This short film documents the efforts of a wild horse sanctuary in central California that offers shelter to herds of wild horses cleared from public lands. Return to Freedom Sanctuary also works to raise public awareness and change government policy. Only with our support will these magnificent creatures continue to run free.
