Looking for Something Wild to do? Check Out The Wild Horse Sanctuary!

Posted July 20th 2014

Looking for something wild to do? Look no further than the Wild Horse Sanctuary located at 5796 Wilson Hill Road in Shingletown.

The Wild Horse Sanctuary is a non-profit, tax exempt, public foundation and 5,000 acre preserve dedicated to the protection and preservation of America's wild horses. It is supported by contributions from individuals and organizations with a wide range of backgrounds who share a common concern for wildlife, the environment and our American heritage.

Their mission is: To protect and preserve America's wild horses as a "living national treasure" in a publicly accessible and ecologically balanced environment with other wildlife for future generations.

Nearly 300 wild horses and burros roam free and live naturally at the Wild Horse Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is open to the public free of charge for wild horse and burro viewing on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

If you are looking for an affordable and unique vacation experience, escape the hustle and bustle of your everyday life for a two or three-day trail ride among wild horses and burros at the Wild Horse Sanctuary. Viewing bands of wild mustangs and burros while on horseback will provide guests with memories that will last a lifetime. Rides follow trails created by the wild horses and burros through a landscape of native grasses, Manzanita, oaks, pines, and lava rock that is inhabited by a diverse wildlife population.

A little history‚?¶.Back in 1978, rather than allow 80 wild horses living on public land to be destroyed, the founders of the Wild Horse Sanctuary made a major life decision right then and there to rescue these unwanted horses and create a safe home for them. And just as quickly, they launched a media campaign to bring attention to the plight of these and hundreds of other wild horses across the west that eventually led to a national moratorium on killing un-adoptable wild horses.

Horses and burros at the Sanctuary‚?¶Many have come from various government agencies after being gathered from desolate areas such as: Sheldon-Hart Mt. Wildlife Refuge in Oregon; White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and Modoc National Forest in California.

Sanctuary volunteers and supporters are working tirelessly to‚?¶

¬∑         Increase public awareness of the genetic, biological, and social value of America's wild horses

¬∑         Develop a working, replicable model for the proper and responsible management of wild horses in their natural habitat.

  • Demonstrate that wild horses can co-exist on the open range in ecological balance with many diverse species of wildlife including black bear, bobcat, mountain lion, wild turkeys, badger and gray fox.
  • Collaborate with researchers in order to document the intricate and unique social structure, biology, reversible fertility control, and native intelligence of the wild horse.
