Pursuant to ARS 3-1491, it is illegal to kill, capture, chase, interfere with, or harass a Salt River horse.
Give them room, use your zoom!
Please enjoy watching the horses while adhering to these viewing guidelines:
- Keep a safe distance of 50 ft from horses at all times, even if they come your way. This is for their well being, and for yours.
- Approaching closer than 50 ft can be interfering/harassment, which is punishable by law with a fine and/or jail sentence.
- Do not feed horses, this is bad for them and is also against the law. (except for the feed program by SRWHMG)
- Keep dogs leashed as horses can attack dogs and vice versa. Maricopa County Leash Law is in effect in the Tonto National Forest.
- Close all gates behind you for their safety.
- SR horses could have any disease/virus/bacteria, that may be contagious to domestic horses. Ride at your own risk.
- Trash kills. This is their home and it is your public land. Pack out what you pack in and pick up after someone else to help make a difference.
- Please report any issues of injuries or harassment or broken fences to the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group (SRWHMG)
