Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary

Hot SpringsSD 57747
Founded in 1988 by Dayton O. Hyde, the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is one of America's greatest private wilderness areas. Located near Hot Springs in southwestern South Dakota, it is owned and operated by the Institute of Range and the American Mustang and is dedicated to giving America's unwanted wild horses a life of freedom. There are hundreds of wild mustangs roaming free across 11,000 acres of wind-swept prairie. Starting in May, our Gift Shop is open 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. There are horses along the way and around the Gift Shop. Only a select few visitors can go out to see the horses by reservation only. The visits are with a guide in a SUV or van, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 people for three hours. The fee is $350 per person plus tax. The availability is weather dependent and is only Monday through Friday (with mornings being the best time to view the herds).
