DreamCatcher takes in previously rounded up and/or adopted wild horses and returns them to a life similar to what they experienced in the wild.
Our herd is made up of Pryor Mountain, McCullough Peaks and Red Desert horses with a heavy influence of Spanish DNA. The horses are quite unique and naturally gaited with high-stepping, floating trots. We also have a smattering of horses from other herd areas like Twin Peaks in California, Calico Complex in Nevada, Seven Troughs in Nevada and Hart Mountain in Oregon.
Once mustangs arrive here, they are encouraged to return to their natural wild state within a herd environment. Like other wildlife facilities, our program for rehabilitation is extensive and time consuming. It can take more than a year to rehabilitate a captive mustang. They must learn to find water, chose the appropriate grasses to eat, maneuver on varied terrain, understand herd dynamics for survival and the dangers of predators.
We are one of only a few sanctuaries who are able to take in un-gelded stallions.
