Horse lovers will be able to get up close with magnificent wild horses in South Dakota, thanks to a planned center from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB). The International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center will provide family-friendly wild mustang safaris. Luxury stays will also be available at the facility.
The International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center, located in Hermosa, South Dakota, on the outskirts of Rapid City, will be constructed by the ISPMB. The Center will provide family-friendly wild mustang safari excursions. In addition, luxury lodgings at this facility may be booked for those who wish to spend the night and enjoy the area’s scenic beauty.
The facility will be located on a ranch, and the activities will reflect this unique experience. Tours of the ranch’s mustang herd will offer exceptional photo opportunities as well as fun experiences for all ages. According to ISPMB, “A ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour brings visitors up close and personal with the majestic creatures, allowing them to get a true feel for what life must be like in the wild. This tour will take you through their natural habitats and bring you within arm’s reach of these free-roaming equines.”
Visitors can also choose to go on a traditional trail ride or even an overnight experience where they can sleep under the stars and experience a ranch environment.
“We are very excited to bring the wild horses to everyone so that they can enjoy them up close,” said ISPMB volunteer Karen Sussman in an interview with WOWT 6 News. “I’ve taken my grandchildren on all kinds of trips, but none have been as exciting for this age group as this.”
Sussman added that the goal of the International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center is to educate visitors about the mustangs and their protection. This nonprofit organization works to rescue wild horses from government roundups and even protects those already in captivity. They also aim to raise awareness of the environmental and economic benefits these animals provide and to preserve their freedom.
The Center will be a wonderful vacation spot for nature enthusiasts who want to get in touch with their wild side. Many people passionate about conservation and the environment are also interested in connecting with horses, which have been an important part of American history.
Guests can expect to find luxurious amenities at this facility, which will be located near several of South Dakota’s most popular landmarks. The International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center will also be near the Black Hills, where tourists can enjoy many outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, or mountain biking.
The International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center is expected to bring many visitors to the state, which will generate revenue for local businesses. Families in the area can learn more about this exciting new opportunity by visiting the International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center’s website.
“We’re excited about the International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage Center being a part of South Dakota’s unique tourism landscape,” said Black Hills Visitor Bureau president & CEO Cathy Ritchie. “We welcome them as an organization that will bring many visitors to the state, which will generate revenue for local businesses.”
