Project Definition


The Coyote Canyon Herd is a microcosm of the wild equid problem and solution.

This organization is dedicated to bringing to the public's attention the plight of the wild horses of the United States of America, and specifically to the battle now being waged to restore the Coyote Canyon Wild Horse Herd to its native habitat, the Beauty Mountain region of federal lands located in San Diego and Riverside Counties. This area is representative of the habitat that this unique and historic band of wild horses was removed from. Beauty Mountain is adjacent to Coyote Canyon, site of the herd area set aside to provide a home range for these animals under the Wild Free-roaming Horse and Burro Act granting them protection in their free roaming condition in perpetuity.
