I just completed another week long photo safari at Return to Freedom in May!
This image features Haloka, a Choctaw Paint. The Choctaw Indian Pony was an integral part of Choctaw tribal culture, spirituality, and heritage. This tough, small horse lived through struggles and tragedies with the tribe, and some carried the ill and infirm on their backs along the Trail of Tears. This portrait was created on May 21,2019 at Return to Freedom's Wild Horse Sanctuary location in Lompoc, in California's Central Coast region.
For more information on the Mustangs living in sanctuary, visit the Return to Freedom website.
