Windhorse’s 30 mustangs were adopted from the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse Program and were born in herds that roam in Utah, Nevada and California. Each horse’s unique story is detailed on Windhorse Relations’ website. The Windhorse herd resides at Brighton Meadows Equestrian Center in Salt Lake City during the summer; and at Kayenta Korrals in the desert community of Kayenta (kayentautah.com)in southern Utah, during the winter.
As their stewards, Windhorse believes it is important for the healthy development of the horses that they remain in a herd setting with the freedom to interact and relate with other wild horses. The horses are not haltered, restrained or forced to accept our presence and touch. Providing a safe environment, understanding the horses’ need for self-preservation and learning the language of non-verbal communication create a desire in the horses to be with us.
This desire and choice to be with us is the first and most important step. All of the additional steps in their “gentling” and education are performed by the horse’s permission only, in order to create willing relationships and Windhorse Ambassadors.Photo Gallery
