February Campfire

“If you watch how nature deals with adversity,

continually renewing itself,

you can’t help but learn.”
-Bernie Siegel MD


Dream Lodge

On March 18th dive into the wild terrain of your dreams this year.  Venture out onto the wild lands of eastern Colorado where wild mustangs roam.  There, we will spend the day exploring our inner and outer landscapes, and begin to cultivate a deeper relationship with the dreamscape.  

Sign up for this one day retreat here.

Thank You Jake & Chris!
We want to give a shout out to
our awesome ranch hands!

Jake Belt and Chris Garrigues have been holding down ranch operations and continuing expansion projects since our last staff transition and we are so grateful to them for their dedication.


Sand Wash Basin Gather
43 horses out of our 50 horse goal
have been gathered!

Attention Sand Wash Mustang Adopters:
Sand Wash horses will be available for adoption via silent auction at two different locations beginning in April: The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary (for Front Range adopters) and Grand Junction (for Western Slope adopters)
  • All of the horses will be made available to approved adopters first. They will become available to TIP Trainers for pickup once both adoption events are over.
  • Any questions, contact Stephen Leonard, BLM (sleonard@blm.gov) or GEMS (info@greatescapesanctuary.org)

SILENT AUCTION ADOPTION DAY at GEMS: Saturday, April 8th (9am-noon) BLM will be onsite to host the event, bring your trailers!

  • Adopters must be onsite and present to participate in the silent auction
  • BLM will be able to approve adoption applications until 10:45am
  • Adopters wishing to participate in the silent auction must pick up their bidder number prior to 11am that day, from the BLM booth at GEMS
  • Silent auction will begin at 11am and promptly end at 11:30am
  • GEMS will be able to provide overnight accommodations for out of town adopters, contact GEMS for more information:info@greatescapesanctuary.org

If you have any thoughts about adopting, make sure that you get your adoption paperwork completed and returned to the BLM. Note “Sand Wash” on the top of your adoption application. You will need to be pre-approved by the BLM and onsite at the adoption event to bid on a horse. Visit our website for more information and links you’ll need to get the process rolling.
