The Pryor Mountain Wild Horses are unique.
Cortez once said “…Next to God, we owed the victory to the horses…” in discussing his conquest of the New World.
About the Range
Wild horses have long roamed the Pryor Mountains, but there was a time when the herd was in serious danger of going extinct.
Viewing the Horses
The Pryor Mountain Wild Horses can be found throughout the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
Regardless of where they are in the range, they are all the same Pryor Mountain Wild Horses.
Pryor Mountain Field Trips
As part of its goals in educating the public on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses,
the Center is happy to offer assistance to any educators wanting to take their students on field trips
to the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
Wild horses still roam freely in the Pryor Mountains outside of Lovell, Wyoming. This herd of horses is very special because of its Colonial Spanish American heritage. This tough little horse, derived from the horses of Portugal and Spain, has been present in this rugged mountain area for nearly 200 years. If lost, the herd cannot be restored; and so its biological viability, together with its history, must be preserved.
It is the purpose of the PRYOR MOUNTAIN WILD MUSTANG CENTER to do just that. The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is a public, nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational institution, unique in purpose and location. The Center is working towards becoming the foremost wild horse educational institution in the world. Your donations can help!
The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is dedicated to preserving the future of the wild horses of the Pryor Mountains.
The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is a public, not-for-profit 501c3 educational institution whose purpose is to:
- Inform visitors of the historic significance of the local mustang herd.
- Provide visitors with an unforgettable experience, viewing live mustangs in a magnificent setting.
- Educate visitors to learn about the dynamics of a mustang herd, the social interactions within individual bands, and the mustang’s place alongside other wild species.
- Work collaboratively with the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service to preserve and promote a genetically viable herd of wild horses in the Pryor Mountains.
2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
