“We are honored to take our guests on a truly magical journey, running free across five states with these magnificent American wild horses, and to draw critical attention to the plight of this American icon,” said Suzanne Roy, Executive Director of the American Wild Horse Campaign.

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC), a nonprofit organization working to ensure the future of America's iconic wild horses and the public lands where they roam, will host their first virtual fundraising event on October 1st from 5-6 pm PST featuring a majestic journey through five states with the American wild horse. The event will raise awareness about the inhumane treatment experienced by wild horses in America. Tickets for the event are $100 and all proceeds go to AWHC’s work to keep wild horses wild.

America’s wild horses are national symbols of freedom and the untamed spirit of the West. They live on public lands and are protected under a federal law that is supported by 80 percent of Americans. Yet the federal government manages these iconic animals in the cruelest, most outdated, and expensive way possible, using helicopters to round them up by the thousands from public lands every year. This brutal and inhumane treatment is driven by the commercial interests that seek to exploit the public lands for private profit.

“We are honored to take our guests on a truly magical journey, running free across five states with these magnificent American wild horses, and to draw critical attention to the plight of this American icon,” said Suzanne Roy, Executive Director of the American Wild Horse Campaign.

For a rockin’ wild time, the fundraiser will feature a special appearance by American Wild Horse Campaign Ambassador Kaitlynn Carter, from MTV’s popular series The Hills, inspiring footage of wild horses, and celebrity musical guests including LP, Lukas Nelson, and Nathaniel Rateliff. A knock-your-boots off silent auction will include grand and majestic experiences such as a Thailand Elephant Sanctuary and Resort Experience, stay in a private Lake Tahoe estate with a tour of world-renowned Fish Springs Wild Horses, and a Two-Night Stay at Durell Ranch House in Sonoma, California. Additional exciting silent auction items include a Christopher Creek Winery VIP Tasting for Ten, an on-the-water dining experience for six in Historic Sausalito, a Chantecaille Gift Basket Filled with Hero Skincare Products and Philanthropy Makeup Cosmetics, a 'Romeo & Juliet' Kimerlee Curyl Fine Art Photography, and a 'Cowboy' From DriveBys Series, Limited Edition by Brian Bowen Smith, who will also make a special appearance at the fundraiser.
A recent successful bipartisan amendment on the U.S. House floor appropriated $11M to the Bureau of Land Management to implement a PZP fertility program, a common-sense, 30-year research-backed, science-based approach to the humane treatment of wild horses, that the AWHC champions, and will save taxpayers billions of dollars in the long run. The amendment currently stands before the Senate for a pending vote, anticipated for late 2020 or early 2021.
