Connect with the horses on our farm

Our thoroughbred horse sanctuary is committed to providing retired horses with the comfort and care they need. Our horses are given plenty of love and attention, especially with equine enthusiasts visiting us so frequently.

After a racing horse retires, they often still have a sizable fan following. Now, fans can come visit their favorite stars in a peaceful, relaxing environment. Our farm gives horses the comfort and affection they deserve.

Interested in working with horses? We offer equine management courses to teach you everything you need to know about horse care, grooming and riding. Volunteers must take this course before doing any horse tasks or feedings.

Come to our farm in Lisbon, IA today to meet the horses.

Why should you visit Unbridled Spirits Thoroughbred Sanctuary?

Ours is the only off-track thoroughbred retirement ranch in the entire Midwest with a full-time pasture retirement option. Horses get to run free on our 100-acre land and feel the wind in their manes.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit animal protection organization. This ranch gives us a way to protect the rights and lives of horses while also giving horse lovers a chance to interact with these majestic animals.
