In the 1950’s a group concerned with the welfare of America’s diminishing wild horse herds formed under the leadership of Velma Bronn Johnston better known as “Wild Horse Annie,” this woman from Nevada, along with many others, worked to ensure a place for wild horses and burros on Federal range lands. In 1971, Congress passed The Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act.
“If God has a kind of plan for all of us,
I’d like to think he coupled me with horses right from the start.”
