Arizona’s wild horses and burros are part of what makes the state unique in the American West. Our state’s love for wild horses was evident five years ago when citizens and political leaders, led by Gov. Doug Ducey, rose up in opposition to the federal government’s plan to round up the beloved Salt River wild horses from their home in the Tonto National Forest.

For decades, the Bureau of Land Management, which oversees hundreds of millions of acres of public land, has opted to spend a significant portion of its budget on a failed policy to remove thousands of “excess” wild horses from the range.
Many Americans remain unaware that the federal government devotes more than $50 million each year to stampeding and rounding up horses with helicopters and then stockpiling these free-roaming animals in off-range holding facilities and corrals for the rest of their lives.

(February 1, 2020) In response to the Jan. 24 opinion by student Saige Bowen, “Wild mustangs need to be managed, not saved,” we contribute science-based evidence for consideration, instead of sweeping, unsubstantiated suggestions. Refer to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) 2013 comprehensive report (paid for by the BLM). The entire report is available to the public. We’ll paraphrase.
On Friday, January 26 2024, American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) sent a legal letter to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with an urgent appeal to halt the ongoing McCullough Peaks bait trap Roundup. This roundup, which began November 1, 2023 and is set to run through March, 2024, sparks major concerns for the genetic diversity of the herds, their population numbers, and the impact of a winter gather on foals and elders.
(Jan 2024): It is with great honor that AWHC presented the 2023 Freedom Award to Congresswoman Dina Titus in person this month. It was a privilege to have our Awareness Ambassador Chloe Gosselin, Nevada State Director Tracy Wilson, and the Nevada lobbyist Helen Foley join Executive Director, Suzanne Roy for the occasion. Representative Titus is an unwavering advocate for the protection of wild horses and burros, dedicated to putting an end to inhumane and unsustainable helicopter roundups on public lands. She truly deserves our gratitude and support!
