who we are
The Great Escape began with a vision and a life-long dream of Gerhard K Sander, our Founder’s father, and since 2011, has evolved into an integral collaboration helping Mustangs in need.
We currently support a wild herd of 31 Mustangs on a private 800 acre ranch and at any given time have between 10-20 horses in foster and/or training at various locations throughout Colorado with our highly talented group of Foster and Trainer Parters.
Our team is comprised of many passionate individuals dedicating their time, energy and lives to the horses that need us so badly. If what we’re doing calls to you, please jump in and join us…it takes a village.
