The days of wild horses roaming free may be long gone, but there’s a place where Santa Barbarans can watch the great creatures in their natural state. Return to Freedom, a wild horse sanctuary that “provides a safe haven for wild horses, herds, and burros who might otherwise be separated, slaughtered, abused, or left to roam without food or water,” as stated on its Web site, offers programs where folks can spend several hours in the hills of Lompoc and observe wild horses and discuss relevant issues. The next class is Saturday, August 2, from 3-7 p.m. Suggested donation is $50. Call 737-9246 or visit returntofreedom.org to secure your spot.
