Wild Horses Run Free In WY, Here’s Where To See Them
Wyoming's wild horses are a sight you'll never forget.
But you have to find them to enjoy them.
Here are three places you can spot Wyoming wild horses.
It's good to have your cell phone to capture pictures and videos. But a long lens would be advised if you have one.
These places are remote and often the herds are way out there.
The Pryor Mountain Herd descended from the horses Cortez used as the Spanish explored the West.
Those Spanish Mustangs have been in the area since the late 1700s. Indigenous tribes found them and brought them farther north.
Visit the Bighorn Canyon area and stop in to see the Pryor Mustang Center in Lowell. They can help you plan a trip to find those wandering herds.
The Pilot Butte Scenic Loop is near Rock Springs.
There is a place where you can book a guided tour.

The wild horses you see in Wyoming are not the original horses from long ago.
By that I mean, prehistoric.
Those prehistoric horses died out.
North America was horse free for a very long time until the Spanish showed up with their breed.
