No donation is too small; every dollar helps these magnificent horses have a better life free from pain and neglect.
​There are multiples ways to donate!

The only reason we are here! Each of the off-track thoroughbreds at our retirement ranch still have a purpose and we nurture that through our programs.

Welcome to Unbridled Spirits

One more way to support the cause is to shop our online store for handmade jewelry, plush horses, branded clothing, goat soap, framed photos, etc.

Abled bodied volunteers are always welcome to help care for the horses with grooming, feeding, and upkeep, and the property by various repairs.

Unbridled Spirits is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 and based out of Lisbon, Iowa.

This is the ONLY off-track thoroughbred retirement sanctuary in the entire Midwest whose transition process includes a full-time pasture retirement option! Yes, there are some amazing facilities that offer career transitioning to an other sport like dressage, eventing, hunter jumper, and more.... But there are no other sanctuaries that allow the horses to run free on over 100 acres and just learn how to be horses again! 

The mission is to preserve the honor and dignity of these amazing athletes by offering a retirement option to these racing thoroughbreds whose racing, breeding, and competitive careers come to an end. 

When a racing star leaves the track or the breeding shed, they still have a large fan-following and a tourist appeal... not to mention a desire for love and affection, same as any horse! We care what happens to these horses, and so many others do as well. 

That's where we stepped in.

Where Retired Racehorses Run Free!
