Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary
South Dakota

We are home to hundreds of Mustangs who are allowed roam free and flourish on our 11,000 acre ranch.

Our Mission

The Sanctuary’s purpose is protecting the range and providing a high-quality life of freedom for its wild horses.


Everything we do at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is devoted to wild horses. From BLM mustangs nobody wanted, to rescues in need of a second chance in life, to the preservation of breeds of mustangs that have dwindled to near extinction… it's all about the mustang.

Visiting the Sanctuary in 2023

We respect the freedom and privacy of out mustang herds. Only a select few visitors can go out to see the horses by reservation only. The visits are with a guide in a SUV or van with a minimum of 2-5 people for two hours. The fee is $3oo per person plus tax. Reservations and a deposit are required for all visits. The availability is based on weather and only Monday through Friday beginning in June. Call 605-745-5955

Our Gift Shop is opened Monday through Friday all year from 8-4 call 605-745-5955 before you come. We are often out feeding horses and are not available.
