At the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota, this mare was curious and beautiful, the long,hot day, coming to an end…

Institute of Range and American Mustang
Mission Statement:

The Institute of Range and American Mustang (IRAM) founded by Dayton O. Hyde in 1988 is a 501 © 3 non-profit corporation registered in the state of South Dakota. The Institute’s federal tax number is 46-0401462.

IRAM owns 11,000 acres of private land dedicated to range preservation and a balanced ecosystem. IRAM’s finest gift is The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, whose purpose is to provide not only freedom for unadoptable and unwanted wild horses, but also a research area dedicated to solving wild horse herd management that will contribute to the well-being of wild horses everywhere.

The Sanctuary and its staff and volunteers are devoted to the spirit of the wild mustangs by giving America’s unwanted wild horses a quality life. The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is a showcase where the public can see large herds of wild horses running free and come to understand our efforts toward land conservation and the preservation of our western heritage-America’s Wild Mustang!

“Use what talents you have.
The woods would be silent
if no bird sang
except those that sang best.”
