Click HERE to view the story of Hayden, a Mustang who was removed from his home in the Pryor Mountains in 2009 and found his way to Equine Advocates Rescue and Sanctuary. 

It's an interesting journey that also involves Terry Fitch and Ginger Kathrens.

    This is from our March 25, 2010 rally in Washington, DC.
Thanks to RT & Terry Fitch for creating the video and
Maria Daines for her fabulous song, I Wanna Run Free.
