Horses run at Mustang Monument Wild Horse Eco-Resort
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride a mustang? I’ve had the opportunity to watch small bands of wild mustangs roam free in the Badlands of Little Book Cliffs, Colorado and was awe-inspired by the experience. I was excited to learn of another opportunity to interact with wild mustangs in north-eastern Nevada. The wild horses at Mustang Monument Eco-Resort take refuge in this Nevada sanctuary where horse lovers co-exist.
Horses at Mustang Monument
A sustainable eco-resort and preserve for wild horses, Mustang Monument is situated on 900 square miles south of Wells in northeast Nevada. I have yet to visit this all inclusive resort, three hours west of Salt Lake City. Owner and philanthropist Madeleine Pickens’ passion is wild mustangs and her mission is to save Americas mustangs, provide them with a sanctuary to live out their lives and educate the public in the process. The fact that Mustang Monument is a luxury resort, where guests stay in tepees and ride horseback, is an added bonus to your horseback riding holiday.
The resort opens to the public June through September. While the free roaming mustangs may conjure up images of the wild west, the upscale resort offers luxury tepees with king-size beds, antique furniture (I noticed a tweet Pickens posted looking for some copper Espresso machines for Mustang Monument) and hardwood floors.

Mustang Monument offers kids week in July. Activities and special events are planned for this unique horseback riding vacation in Nevada. Some of the activities (offered for adults, too) include guided hikes, horseback rides, roping lessons, archery, bocce ball and horse-drawn wagon trips.
Day trips to visit the horses are available. Tepees for two persons rent for $1,000 per night.
