CFC Takes Photos for Unbridled Spirits

Many Cameras for Conservancy members said this was their favorite photo shoot this year. And what is not to love about acres of green grass, a beautiful day, and many gorgeous horses?

USprits Group Shot

On their website, Unbridled Spirits says, “Unbridled Spirits is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 and based out of Lisbon, Iowa.This is the ONLY off-track thoroughbred retirement sanctuary in the entire Midwest whose transition process includes a full-time pasture retirement option! Yes, there are some amazing facilities that offer career transitioning to an other sport like dressage, eventing, hunter jumper, and more…. But there are no other sanctuaries that allow the horses to run free on over 100 acres and just learn how to be horses again! The mission is to preserve the honor and dignity of these amazing athletes by offering a retirement option to these racing thoroughbreds whose racing, breeding, and competitive careers come to an end. When a racing star leaves the track or the breeding shed, they still have a large fan-following and a tourist appeal… not to mention a desire for love and affection, same as any horse! We care what happens to these horses, and so many others do as well.”

All photos taken that day were donated to Unbridled Spirits for them to use in social media, on their website, and other fundraising activities.

Our goal is to inspire others to become more involved in nature and deepen their relationship with nature and the natural world through photography. We do this by leading workshops in nature journaling and wildlife photography. We also provide photo services to organizations that work with the environment for the purposes of helping them further their conservation efforts. Last, but not least, we host workshops for children with special needs who may benefit from using nature photography as a communication tool. We do not represent any political group, nor do we align with any current conservation group. Our purpose is only to take photos and teach others how to take photos of wildlife in a way that would benefit the environment. We do not have a political or activist agenda.
