Spanish Mustang Herd

Welcome to this new and exciting Spanish Mustang Spirit of the Black Hills preservation project, managed by the Institute of Range and the American Mustang (IRAM) at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary (BHWHS) in Hot Springs, South Dakota. Nearly fifty of our over five hundred mustangs at the sanctuary, in our special Spanish herds, represent primitive remnants from rare bloodlines of the Golden Age of Spain and the Old World Iberian Peninsula. We are now expanding our wild horse sponsorship program to include our historic Spanish type horses. The purpose of this project is to preserve, promote, and educate the public about rare Spanish and Portuguese equine bloodlines still found in today's American mustangs. Check out our Rare Spanish, Sulphur, Kiger, and Sorraia Mustangs sponsor horses and the new books about Spanish Mustangs! Visit our Spanish Mustang Spirit page to learn more about these rare treasures.

Maricruz

Maricruz came to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary from a private donor, Caballos de Destino, in Hot Springs, SD. She is a lovely grulla Spanish mustang mare born in 2003. The color grulla, in the dun family of colors, is the Spanish name for the blue-gray color of the sandhill crane. Her primitive colors include a dorsal strip, leg barring, and stripes on her withers. The broken stripe on her face has a cross right at the top which gave the inspiration for her name.
