Wild Horse Education (WHE) has been working on multiple projects from documenting roundups and continuing to engage to strengthen humane handling policies and engagement deep in the fight against those that want to takeover public land and kill our wild horses. The road ahead has challenges, just as the road behind us did. But together we can make change.
The Nevada Historical Society honored our founder Laura Leigh with a portrait done by the NV Portrait Society. The portrait was hung in conjunction with the 80th anniversary of Nevada Magazine. Leigh was one of several Nevadans honored. In January Leigh will be “hung” at the State Legislature.
WHE has also been working on books and film projects with several people in creative “mode.”. One of the projects addresses broad scale issues facing our nation managing all of public land, another is a short about our work. These projects include footage and interviews over the course of the better part of the last decade of our fight against abuse, slaughter and to gain fair management on the range. Included in the short is an interview with our founder.
Meet our founder Laura Leigh.
WHE has a many new volunteers and board members. We will bring you updates from the range and introductions soon.
Please help us continue with our work. We are not an organization that operates from behind a desk, we operate from the ground where our wild ones stand.
We have just completed the Triple B roundup, a month in the field to document (not just take pictures). The work has led to us pushing oversight agencies to look deeply at the justifications, prioritization and execution of the operation.
