If you are traveling this summer and you’re hoping to get your horse fix along the way, consider stopping somewhere to see wild horses.
Deer Creek Structures has scouted the best places in the United States to see wild horses, narrowing it down to four favorite spots.
The Virginia Range, Nevada
A top location to see wild horses in North America is The Virginia Range in Nevada. Nevada is home to about half of the United States wild horse population, which is a little known fact. Visitors have been coming to the area to take in the beauty and majesty of these wild creatures for many years. If you’re familiar with “Wild Horse Annie,” you might know that these horses are often referred to as Annie’s Horses, since they inspired the crusade to protect wild horses in America.
The High Lonesome Ranch, Colorado
If you’re traveling towards the mid-west, head to Colorado to see some wild Mustangs among other tremendous views. Guests of The High Lonesome Ranch, located in De Beque, Colorado, can take a day trip to view the local wild horses roam free. The ranch also has a variety of other activities to keep guests entertained from fly-fishing to hiking.
Virginia and many other surrounding states are well-known for having a surplus of wild horses. In fact, if you head to the island of Assateague, you’ll find dozens of wild horses swimming and enjoying the warm sunny weather. You’ll also see plenty of other wildlife, such as egrets and peregrine falcons. There are over 300 ponies that roam within the island.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota
If you’ve never been to North Dakota, consider booking a trip out to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Here, you can spend a few days hiking around where you will find a couple hundred free-roaming horses grazing and galloping. Experts suggest heading out to the park in the summertime, and setting up for the afternoon at a high point where you can watch the wild horses roam below you.
