There’s No Wilderness Area in The World Quite Like This One In South Dakota

Did you know that South Dakota is home to 11,000 acres of land where hundreds of wild mustangs live and roam free across the peaceful prairie? You may have to go a bit off the beaten path to find the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, but the beauty of this place will be etched in your memory forever (and its mission just might bring tears to your eyes).

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

This non-profit corporation receives no state or federal funding. Tours are available year round upon reservation, and all fees support the horses. To request a tour or learn more about the history of the sanctuary feel free to visit their website.

Seeing all of the mustangs running free is nothing short of breathtaking. Have you ever visited this incredible sanctuary? Let us know in the comment section!
