"Imagine a place where, as far as the eye can see, miles and miles to the horizon, you can view America as it was 300 years ago. Imagine a place, long revered by the American Indians, where the Cheyenne River flows in all four directions, and eagles’ shadows sweep the rocky canyon walls, a place where wild horses run free across endless prairies, hooves striking thunder, manes and tails flying in the wind.

Imagine a crowded, bone bare feed lot packed with captured mustangs, some too weak to stand. Listless, dejected, some have lost the will to live. Spirits broken, unwanted, either too old, too ugly, or independent to qualify for the adoption program.

Now imagine an Oregon rancher, naturalist, and author with the heart, the will, the sense of duty, the desire to save these animals, and you have Dayton Hyde. In 1988, Dayton Hyde raised by the skin of this teeth, enough money for a down payment on a sanctuary near Hot Spring, South Dakota, and convinced the Bureau of Land Managment to send him its unadoptale wild horses.

Today, that dream is a reality. Come to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, experience the dream, visit their grassland home of rocky canyons, windswept prairies, and dark pine forests, a home they share with coyotes, cougar, white-tail and mule deer, elk, big horn sheep, wild turkeys, eagles and falcons. A home where hundreds of wild horses not only live but flourish, nurtured by the dream of a man of vision, and the freedom he gave them. You are part of that dream. Your participation in sponsoring the horses and visiting has helped keep these wild horses running free, and has given them thousands of years of horses freedom...... IMAGINE."  Dayton O. Hyde, IRAM Founder/President
