Dedicated to the preservation of wild horses on our public lands, and the protection of Cloud's herds in the Arrowhead Mountains of Montana.

The Cloud Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of wild horses and burros on our western public lands with a focus on Cloud's herd in the Arrowhead Mountains of Montana. Cloud was rounded up for the third time in September of 2009 despite an enormous public outcry. Cloud and his band were released two days after they were captured but Cloud's grandchildren and his daughter were removed along with more than 50 others, leaving the herd at only 125 horses. Cloud is now back in the wild & we continue our work to preserve what wild horses value most- their freedom and their families.



The Pryor Mountain Wild Horses can be found throughout the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. Regardless of where they are in the range, they are all the same Pryor Mountain Wild Horses.

Some of the wild horses live in the desert lowlands of the range, and many of these can be seen along Highway 37 in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. Because of the landscape and behavior of these horses, it is often difficult to find them. Bighorn sheep, mule deer, coyotes, and other birds and animals can also be seen in this area. Highway 37 is a well maintained, paved highway that any vehicle can easily drive on.

Most of the wild horses live on East Pryor Mountain, and they are relatively easy to find. As in the lowlands, other wildlife, such as black bears, mule deer and possibly mountain lions, can be seen in the area as well. However, it can be difficult to access these horses as available roads require a vehicle with good four wheel drive, low range, and tires.

It is highly recommended that visitors wishing to view the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses come to the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center first. We can provide maps and directions showing current options for viewing the horses. Because we frequently monitor the horses, we are able to give current information on the status and location of them. We are also more than happy to provide further information on the wild horses that visitors do see as we know information about each individual.

Wild Horses of the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is one of very few places in America where wild mustangs still roam free, stubbornly surviving in this once remote coastal environment. Descended from spanish mustangs which arrived close to 500 years ago, these hardy, tenacious wild horses have lived here since the earliest explorers and shipwrecks. In previous centuries there were thousands of these wild mustangs roaming the full length of the Outer Banks, from Shackleford Banks, all along Core Banks, Ocracoke, Hatteras, and on northward beyond Corolla on Currituck Banks.

Wild Horses of the Shackleford Banks

The island of Shackleford Banks is only nine miles long and home to a herd of wild horses with a unique historic and cultural legacy.
