Preserving a Western Heritage

Posted in

The great American West wouldn't be the same without the symbol of the horse and The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign is challenging the way our wild herds are managed.

Organized in 2004 to protect and preserve America's wild horses, Director Suzanne Roy believes in stating the facts.

The BLM only allows 26,000 wild horses on 10% of its land. That's one horse per thousand acres. In a country where cattle is king, Roy says fair land allotments for wild horses isn't always a priority for the BLM.

Currently there are 33,000 wild horses on BLM land. At issue, is the inhumane rounding up and removal of the horses and the castrating of several hundred stallions. Roy says there is a better way.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come.
