Thanks to Dayton O. Hyde, hundreds of captured mustangs now run wild and free at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. This place is located in South Dakota and it is surrounded by the flowing Cheyenne River. It remains as one of the wildest places in America. This amazing video shows us a glimpse of O’Hyde’s vibrant life.
O’Hyde is a cowboy, a conservationist, and an award-winning writer, who through extreme perseverance, is preserving an important part of America. When Dayton moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1990, he decided to spend his life operating his 11,000 acre sanctuary for wild horses, even if it meant going up against the government. He says, ‘This is as close to heaven as I’ll probably ever get’ . You have to see this to know what he means!
This clip is a trailer for his documentary that was filmed to help educate others about these horses and the need to protect them in America’s heartland. He does indeed have to go up against the government to protect the land and the horses. Hopefully this documentary can shed some light on what he’s doing and help save these horses.
Dayton O. Hyde is a cowboy, a photographer, an engineer, or so the government thought, and he is a fighter. This trailer is only two minutes long, but it will make you want to watch this documentary about this extraordinary man.
