BLM Montana-Dakotas Gathers and Removals

BLM Montana/Dakotas manages the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range on approximately 36,000 acres. The appropriate management level is 120 horses.

Since 1971, the BLM has removed nearly 450 horses from the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range as part of its efforts to maintain healthy horses and burros on healthy public rangelands. Animals removed from public rangelands are offered to the public for adoption; unadopted animals are cared for on open pastures for the rest of their lives. Below, find on-going and recently completed gathers, organized by HMA.
