State Herd Area: Range Creek (UT)
Range Creek HMA

The Range Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) is located 30 miles northeast of Price, Utah. The HMA encompasses over 60,000 acres of private, state, and federal mountainous lands on the West Tavaputs Plateau. The terrain is very broken and dominated by pinyon-juniper woodland with scattered sagebrush/grassland parks with Aspens and Douglas Fir on the higher portions.


Horses have been a part of the range environment in the Range Creek area at least since contemporary livestock use began. The origin of the wild horse herd is believed to be from horses once owned by the Preston Nutter Ranch. These horses are stout, have compact conformation, and limited in color. They are average in size, with mares estimated to weigh 800 to 1000 pounds, and stallions 900 to 1100 pounds. Most are bays and black with occasional sorrel, and paint horses occurring.
