The mission of the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group is to ensure their long term protection and humane management of the Salt River wild horses. They are the historic and majestic creatures roaming the lower Salt River in the Tonto National Forest in Arizona. They are the pride of the community, a favorite subject of photographers and the icon of the wild, free spirit of Arizona and the American West. These wild horses were brought into the limelight during our epic battle for their protection; the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group together with the public gave them a voice. The Salt River Wild Horse Management Group worked with congress to find positive solutions with Federal and State governments. It worked; while almost gone forever, today the Salt River wild horses are protected pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 3-1491 (aka the Salt River Horse Act). The group is now under contract with the AZ Department of Agriculture to manage this herd humanely. This partnership between the federal government, the State Government and a Non Governmental Organization is a one of its kind and the groundbreaking program is finding the balance between it all.
