Mustangs: A Living Legacy
Track wild horses and relive the Old West in the seldom-visited Pizona area of Inyo National Forest. From a central meadow camp, riders track mustangs in their natural pinyon forest habitat and learn the social behavior of the horses and their current struggle. This program is a special opportunity that combines a rustic outdoor adventure and a unique educational experience in exploring the biology, ecology and behavior of a proud and beautiful animal—the North American wild horse. This trip takes place June 8–11 and costs $900.
