I have been volunteering for the PMWMC for several years now. The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is very special in that it is the first and foremost organization that gives the facts about the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses. The people are honest and do their very best to inform the public about the Horses. Those involved have given countless hours of their time to preserve and interpret the wild horses on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. The Center is a very important part of the community and they have programs at the schools to educate the children about the importance of these very special horses. At the Center many visitors come every year to learn about the wild horses and gather information as to where they can view the horses. The people involved with the Center are very helpful and are very dedicated to the cause. I helped install water guzzlers up on the Pryor Mountains so that the wild horses would utilize different parts of the range. The water guzzlers are now being used by the horses, so this project was successful. All involved are very passionate and hard working people. I would encourage anyone interested in these horses and the Center to volunteer their time. These horses are a National Treasure and they have a voice with the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center!!!
My sister and I took a trip this last summer to the Pryor Mountains to view the wild horses. The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center drove us up there in their 4 wheel drive truck. Mine wouldn't have made it. They knew where to find the horses and all their names. They provided lunch and refreshments and great company. It was a wonderful time. The Center is pivotal in helping the public understand the situation of the wild mustang's and their struggle for survival amongst the BLM wanting to round them all up and put them in holding pens...no longer free to roam their native land. The Center is awesome!
My experience with the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center began in 2004. As a professional photographer, leader of wild horse workshops and author of Among Wild Horses: A Portrait of The Pryor Mountain Mustangs, I have often depended on the knowledge and help of this non-profit group. They play an important role in educating the public about the Pryor Mountain wild horse herd, providing valuable information to visitors to the area and to the public, in general. They also provide time and hands-on labor to help with projects that are in the best interest of the horses. In addition, they are the caretakers of the archive of important historical documents related to the history of these special horses.
Horses have always been my first love, especially the wild mustang. And I had always dreamed of being able to do art depicting how a wild horse truly is, and to be able to do something to make the life of a wild horse be better in the world for how it is today. To be able to help the general public understand the plight of the wild mustang horse was always a dream, a vision that I was never able to make come true until on July 13th, 2011 when I came across the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center in Lovell, Wyoming. A dream long awaited for was now finally coming true. I have lots of horses to use for art and a place to donate to and a place that truly does help the wild mustang.
