As most of you know, the Salt River wild horses are a great economic boon to our local economy, because of the worldwide interest in them.
Because the future is going to bring evermore people to our beautiful Tonto National Forest, we believe it is very important to lead eco-tourism in a positive and responsible way, so that the horses can still live their normal lives, without being constantly bothered.
However, we also want to make sure that people can see and watch the horses safely, to mark that off their bucketlist, because after all, it is that enormous love from the public, that saved the Salt River wild horses in the first place.
The positive messaging and respecting of the horses is an important part of that future planning.
So “protecting the horses” is not only protecting the horses, but it is also “protecting our local economy”, and “protecting our important Arizona history” and “protecting the public interest”!
We, in cooperation with the AZDA and the Tonto National Forest, will continue to protect the Salt River wild horses and manage them responsibly and sustainably into the future, for all Arizonans, and for people from all over the world!
We are glad to have Visit Mesa on the horses side!
Thank you #visitmesa !
