Denali says she likes this game a lot! #giantpony #pmurescue #pmufoal #lifesaverswildhorserescue

Took my very Brave Enapay out on his first ride outside of the arena. We just went up and down the road a little. Checking stuff out and taking a little grass break to reward him for being so good. Then when we got back we introduced what it's like to stand at the trailer after a ride.
I had really hoped the next one that stole my heart would be a big flashy gelding. nope. He's a 14.3 solid bay. #mustanghorse #lifesaverswildhorserescue #wildhorse #enapay #tehachapi

One of my favorite pictures from a four day weekend of wild horse gentling. This filly had so much sass. #mustanghorse #lifesaverswildhorserescue #wildhorses #wildhorsegentling

I had a sticker bugging my foot, so I took off my boot. Then this happened. #sillyhorse #mustanghorse #wildhorse #lifesaverswildhorserescue

Good morning from Lifesavers! Please watch your step!!! #rescued #horsesofinstagram #wildhorsesanctuary #lifesaverswildhorserescue

Just some fun with one of my students yesterday.
I love watching my own Mustangs progress and see how they do with different people and circumstances. Blanca's attentiveness to Hunter really made me happy. I think she enjoyed her morning playing with him.
This sanctuary bound, feed lot rescue has come a long way since Gary and I chose to take her home, three years ago. Our very own diamond in the rough. #mustanghorse #feedlotrescue #tehachapi #lifesaverswildhorserescue

Just another beautiful day in paradise. ❤️ Working on getting my twiggy Enapay (Brave) fit and ready to haul me around. He didn't have the benefit of growing up in these mountains, like Miguel. He came from South Dakota to Lifesavers, as a yearling, and as been living the flat lander life since. I can feel how hard it is for him to carry me around these hills. So, on top of riding, Miguel and I pony him every chance we get. Today we rode to the top of the hill for lunch. 🤠🐴 Love days when I get time to take it easy with my own herd. #tehachapi #wildhorses #mustanghorses #lifesaverswildhorserescue #wildhorsesofoakcreek #horsetraining #saveahorserideamustang

Yay Hunter! First time riding Shelby.
They still have a lot of work ahead of them, but these small steps are what build confidence in the both of them.
I chose Shelby with him in mind and the whole family fell in love with her back in March during my Wild Horse Gentling Workshop.
She's come a long way since then and he has helped at every step.
I think what makes Hunter successful with his horse, is the fact that he is consistent. Every day when he comes to see her, he is the same kid who saw her last week. He doesn't bring his bad days and take it out on her. Ive never seen him angry or frustrated with her, even when they make mistakes and face challenges. That gives Shelby confidence in him and helps her feel safe under his leadership, which is necessary if she's expected to learn new things and become a great riding partner. #horsetraining #mustangtraining #tehachapi #saveahorserideamustang #lifesaverswildhorserescue #wildhorse #mustanghorse

Told Brave he has to get ready to see Jonathan @jonathanfieldhorseman in a few months. I'm not sure he's as excited about this as I am. 😴🐴 #mustanghorse #wildhorse #lifesaverswildhorserescue #mustangtraining #saveahorserideamustang #tehachapi #horsetraining

Welcome to our newest horses here at lifesavers! We have officially taken on 6 former ISPMB that are also known as the Hallelujah horses. They were once free-roaming American mustangs, then they were captured. Then they were captive. Then they were gelded. Then they were starved then relocated again and again. And so with no future and being severely neglected we decided to give them a place to call home. Once they have rested up and put on more weight we will be sending them out to our sanctuary in Caliente, CA. This was not in our strategic plan in our budget so we need your help! Please consider making a tax deductible donation the care of our new group of guys. They have been through enough! #wildhorses #wildhorserescue #horse #horses #equine #horsesofinstagram #horsesofig #horselover #lifesaverswildhorserescue #equinelove #love #beautiful #ca #californiaadventure

Mustang lovers! We have a mustang gentling workshop coming up in a month with some spots available. July 6-9. $750. Includes meals and housing. Not only will this enrich the lives of these wild horses and prepare them for domestication, but it will enrich your life as well. So much to learn about the horse and human connection. https://form.jotform.us/71595770784168 I'm not sure if you can copy that link. If not DM me for a sign up link.

Trainer Darlene sorting horses in preparation for the vet. With over 400 horses between our two properties our trainers and staff must work around the clock to make sure our horses are receiving their routine vet care and hoof maintenance. #beautiful #barnlife #equinephoto #horse #horses #horsesofig #horselover #horserescue #lifesaverswildhorserescue #californiarepublic #equinelove #equinephoto

Welcome to our two newest members here at Lifesavers. Both saved from Kill buyers in Louisiana, they made the long journey out to the high desert 🌵 and are almost finished with their quarantine. Once they get a clean bill of health they will be sent out to join one of our other herds while they wait for their forever homes ❤️❤️❤️ #horse #beautiful #equine #equinephoto #equinelove #horselover #horserescue #horsesofig #horses #lifesaverswildhorserescue #love #desertlandscape #ca
