  Imagine taking an adventurous journey where wild horses still run free. You travel across Nevada’s high desert plains, where more free-roaming horses live than all the other states combined.

   As you drive down the highway, a red-tailed hawk spirals above a valley bounded by snow-capped peaks. Wild horses meander through snags of piñon pine and stands of mountain mahogany. A stallion stands on a ridge top, alert to changes in the wind and any scent that disturbs the sun-baked rock sandstorm-hammered sagebrush.

   Mustangs haunt the silent streets of ghost towns and graze on the outskirts of friendly country communities. You hike to the top of a brushy hill and look down. Gathered at a watering hole, a band of young stallions snort and rear, kick and gallop. Expelled from their family herds to grow lean and tough, these bachelor bands harden their minds and muscles by searching for wild
grass and unclaimed water. Sparring and play-fighting, the young stallions practice for the day they’ll challenge a grown stallion and win their own band of mares.

  Continue along wide-open spaces near state and national parks. The land is so silent you feel like you’re alone, but then the mustangs appear. Hooves raise small puffs of dust as they strike the bed of ancient Lake Lahontan. Moving in a rhythm older than man’s urge to tame them, their silhouetted images dance across the horizon, where blue sky meets bone-white playa. Eyes and nostrils wide open, they earn their native name of “wind drinkers”.

"They sweep out of sight but not out of memory." Terri Farley, author of the Phantom Stallion book series

  It’s time to take a real adventure. These wild horses are a part of your national heritage and continue to run free across the public lands. They’re only a short drive from Reno and Las Vegas and expert guides are ready to lead the way. What are you waiting for?
