About the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary

Institute of Range and the American Mustang Goals and Purpose:

 

Preserving the land to offer a haven of hope for America's wild horses since 1988.

The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary was created as a nonprofit organization to provide and maintain a permanent private home for America's unwanted wild horses. IRAM's goal of saving the American Wild Mustang also includes the preservation of endangered wild horse bloodlines of the resident mustang bands. This includes the Spanish, Choctaw Indian, Curly and American Mustangs.

No state of federal funds are received by the organization.  All efforts to maintain the Sanctuary land and provide the best possible life of freedom for the horses are funded through the generosity of donors!

The Sanctuary is no longer open to visitors. If you wish to support our efforts, please do so with your donations.

Coming in 2021!

Introducing "Coming Home" - offering a refuge of healing for veterans and horses.

The Institute of Range and the American Mustang is honoring our founder, Dayton O. Hyde, who was a WWII veteran, by  offering equine-assisted programming for veterans.

 

Please know that the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary will remain a protected home for America's unwanted wild horses.  Your favorite horses and herds will continue to live a life of freedom throughout the 11,000 acres dedicated to the Sanctuary by the Institute.

 

We're just getting started with the planning and preparations to offer services to veterans beginning in 2021.
