Can you believe that it has been a year already since Theodore Roosevelt National Park announced that they were going to start working on a wild horse management plan?!
Well they actually called it a “livestock” management plan because they decided to reclassify the wild horses as livestock.
It has been 4 months now since the park announced their plans to eliminate the ENTIRE herd of wild horses!
Throughout this process, there have been a lot of Theodore Roosevelt quotes that have been brought out. This one is my favorite and one that rings in my head almost every day:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt~
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates has stepped fully into the area! From Day 1, we have been leading the fight to save this iconic wild horse herd.
But you have to wonder, what WOULD President Theodore Roosevelt say if he were alive today?
WONDER NO MORE!

Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
