Salt River Wild Horses

A spirit of the wild west remains alive in some parts of Arizona by teams of horses who roam and graze freely.

While it’s estimate that fewer than 500 mustangs remain in Arizona, people who visit known refuges for the horses have a good chance of spotting them. One such concentration of these wild horses is along banks of the Salt River and its reservoirs.

These images were captured near the Butcher Jones Beach at Saguaro Lake.

For the protection of the horses, it’s important to keep your distance. Don’t approach them or try to feed them.
