Wild Rides for Wild Horses!
There are more than 40,000 wild horses in government holding facilities across the western United States. These horses will never be returned to the wild and the cost of their care is funded entirely by taxpayers. Roundups continue annually, but adoption rates are at a historic low. Our mission is to demonstrate the value of wild horse adoption through challenging long rides.
What is long riding? Simply put, long riding is long distance travel by horse. Unlike endurance riding, long riding is not competitive and it is not timed. It is an equestrian expedition that harkens back to the days before motorized vehicles. It is a journey of discovery.
In 2013, my adopted mustang and I trekked nearly 500 miles from the Utah border to Reno, Nevada along backcountry trails -- battling wild terrain, wild weather, and wild animals. Our adventure helped raise awareness of wild horses for fans around the world. But the mission is not complete. Stay tuned for the second Nevada Discovery Ride -- 1,100 miles in 2016!
