Mustang Monument History
The American public, as well as the Congress, has made it clear that wild horses on federal land are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the American West and must be protected. Although it is the government’s obligation and duty to carry out this mandate, it is worthy to explore a public/private partnership to accomplish this goal. If we can together establish a plan for the permanent retirement and care of these magnificent animals, it will be a legacy that all Americans can be proud of.
We are currently developing Mustang Monument: Wild Horse Eco-Sanctuary in Northern Nevada. It will be a tourist destination similar to our National Parks where Americans and tourists from around the world can come, observe, and be a part of this great part of American history.
The mastermind behind this whole concept is Madeleine Pickens, Madeleine is a businesswoman, animal welfare activist, and philanthropist. Madeleine grew up in Europe and was captivated by the history of “The West.” She immigrated to the United States in the 1970s and continued to be enthralled by our country’s history and our Native American culture.
After the Bureau of Land Management announced in 2008 that the United States government was considering euthanasia and/or selling more than 30,000 wild mustangs to slaughterhouses overseas, Madeleine announced plans to develop a sanctuary for the horses. On September 13, 2008, Madeleine was named ABC News “Person of the Week” for these efforts and announced the development of her charity “The National Wild Horse Foundation” later renamed “Saving Americas Mustangs” to fund the sanctuary and garner support for the cause. On March 3, 2009, she testified before the United States House of Representatives Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands in support of H.R. 1018, the Restoring Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act.
Her efforts to rescue and preserve the wild mustang continue today. After purchasing her Foundation’s sanctuary in North Eastern Nevada, she saved over (600) Mustangs from slaughter. Her 501(c)(3) organization, Saving America’s Mustangs (SAM), has raised the necessary funding to develop and open Mustang Monument Eco-Resort and Preserve, an arm of SAM that will maintain the sustainability of the wild horse preserve for years to come. Madeleine is proud to develop a property that will protect the wild horse, educate the public on their inclusion in American history and ensure their protection for years to come.
