    We are an equine rehab and re-wilding sanctuary sat in 400 acres of the sierras of Uruguay.
    We rescue horses from the pipeline and myriad backgrounds of abuse and neglect. We try best to honor the integrity of the horses true nature in harmony with the land while observing holistic land management practices working in symbiosis with our native ecosystem. Currently building spaces and hopefully a bigger food forest to hold clinics and workshops down the road.
