Sutter has become one of our greatest teachers and reminds us that when we extend love, we receive it. Sutter was captured from public lands in the Warm Springs area of Nevada when he was about one year old. He suffered extreme abuse in his early years and was later deemed “dangerous,” and was marked as a horse to be destroyed.
With the right environment and communication, Sutter became a trusting and loving mount. He is a testimony to the forgiving nature of horses. Sutter came to live at Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary in 2002. He is an Ambassador for The American Wild horses of draft stock, whose ancestors helped farm the Great basin.
