Saving America’s Mustangs
A Foundation for the Preservation of America’s Wild Horses
(Founder Madeleine Pickens)
About Saving America’s Mustangs
Wild horses are a living symbol of our American heritage and freedom.
These Mustangs must be protected.
Businesswoman and philanthropist Madeleine Pickens is committed to this promise. Through her Foundation, citizens from all walks of life are uniting to create a permanent home, a Sanctuary, to save these magnificent national treasures.
… and about Madeleine Pickens
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 worthwhile 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.
My view is for a wild horse sanctuary that 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. We can use this treasure to promote eco-tourism and at the same time provide for permanent retirement and management of these American icons to which we owe so much. I, myself, am an immigrant to America and came because of America’s freedoms, can do attitude, and respect for its open spaces and natural heritage of which these wild horses are a part. I look forward to being a part of preserving this for generations to come.
