Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

You occasionally see one, and it’s the thrill of a lifetime. But mostly all you ever see is a cloud of dust after they are gone. It’s their stubborn ability to survive that makes them so remarkable.”
—Velma “Wild Horse Annie” Johnston, Reno, Nevada

This collection showcases wild horses, living free on our lands in the Western USA. These free roaming horses live on the Onaqui range in Utah and the Sand Wash Basin range in Colorado and along the northern Arizona border. The horses from Return to Freedom wild horse sanctuary once roamed our vast plains but have been removed from our public lands and are now protected on a private preserve in California.

Most of these images were taken on the Onaqui Range of Utah. There are around 500 wild horses there roaming on thousands of acres in various family bands. Today they face the threat of removal. A planned government roundup of approximately 400 of these horses in July of 2021 will reduce the numbers to just 100. This will be a sad day for our American treasure in the West, the wild horse.
