Future home of the Virginia Range rescued wild horses.
Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund cares for 145 Virginia Range wild horses that were removed from the range by the Nevada Department of Agriculture in 2012-2013. Many were sent to the livestock auction where they were saved from being purchased for shipment to slaughter.
They will soon be moving from the two private ranches where they are boarded to the new
Virginia Range Mustangs Haven at Equine Legacy Ranch. Join us on this incredible journey!
Currently Phase 1 of the fencing is going on and soon to be completed, along with water tank piping, gates, panels, shelters, etc.
Volunteers to help with work parties are needed to get this phase done and the first group of horses moved to this land. Can you help? There are all levels of things that can be done, from measuring and placing markers for fence posts, caring t-posts to their marked location, running the gas powered post pounder, stringing and clipping wire, and more.
If you want to be part of something great by helping with this work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, the VR Mustangs Haven is not open to the public. The gate is locked at all times, so we ask you do not drive to the property without an appointment or approved visit. This is for the safety of the horses, visitors, and the land. At this time, visits are currently restricted to work parties and appointments only. Once we move horses onto the property, visits will remain by appointment only and for volunteers on designated projects. There will be many opportunities for work parties, scheduled visits, scheduled tours, pre-planned events, and adoption appointments, giving lots of opportunity to see and experience the rescued horses at home in their new home. We want to welcome you to come see what your support has helped build!
The atmosphere at the VR Mustangs Haven is that of love, peace, compassion, and positivity. There is so much negativity in our current world that we ask when you come through the gate, do so with an open heart and mind and help us further the mission of coming together as a powerful community to protect and preserve the Virginia Range wild horses and in such, giving the rescues in our care the best future life possible. If we all focus on the horses with love and acceptance of each other, there is no time or room for meanness or drama. Working together, the horses win.
