Ancient Horse of the Americas Preservation Program

We have partnered with Sacred Way Sanctuary to help preserve the rare and endangered Native American Horse (also described as The Ancient North or South American Horse.) Each year, the title to dozens of foals is granted to Sacred Healing Circle, and we help to place these horses in solid, caretaking homes where they will be allowed to procreate. These sacred horses are never sold.

Our organizations have joined forces to achieve the following goals: sponsor and conduct genetic and other scientific research regarding the Indigenous horse of the Americas; preserve the endangered Indigenous Horse of the Americas; select caretakers for the horses that are part of the AHAPP; and create alliances throughout the equine community, tribal Nations, and other educational and historical organizations. 


We have a “Training to Return" program, where horses are trained by a qualified horse trainer before they are delivered. Half of the proceeds from this program go to the trainer. The other half is directed to SHC to help transport small herds to Elders in Indigenous communities across the country.
