Meet Sasha

Sasha came to Return to Freedom’s American Wild Horse Sanctuary on June 2, 2012.

Sasha was born from a conservation effort to preserve the fast disappearing strains of the original Spanish horses that entered America in the early 1500s and 1600s. Sasha was scheduled to be euthanized because she was not willing to be ridden.

Sasha is a very beautiful grulla dorsal striped medicine hat mare with blue eyes and flowing mixed mane and tail.

Sasha fit seamlessly into Amante’s small harem band. Amante is a rare to find Cerbat stallion from the mountains outside of Kingman, Arizona where remnants of the Spanish horses stolen by the Apache still survive by a thread.

Sasha is dedicated to Amante and rarely leaves his side. She is a nurturing matriarch to offspring in the harem.
