Our legislative efforts include continuing letters to Congress and educating advocates about the laws and changes that have been or need to be made. We hold weekly Zoom meetings to discuss these and other issues with anyone interested. Send us an email if you'd like to receive the weekly Zoom invitations.
OWHO is part of collaborative efforts to provide lifesaving water to not only wild horses and burros but all wildlife on the drought-stricken western lands.
We are always looking for volunteers who live in or near these areas who can help as these situations come up. So if you love to watch the wild horses please consider becoming part of the team. You can join or send any inquiries to us by filling out the form on the bottom of this page.
Please consider making a donation to help us keep doing the vital work we are for our wild horses and burros.

Message to Congress
We all need to repeat and demand an answer to this: "Where is the law that says that horse areas which were designated as a result of the 1971 Act (which we don't disagree can have multiple uses on them) are no longer to be managed "principally" for the wild horses/burros?"
That law does NOT exist. So while you may have other uses on their (horses or burros) lands they do NOT get to take principal use from these wild equines. Until Congress passes a law that says these areas, no matter what BLM calls them (Range, HA, HMA, Complex, or anything new they label them as) are no longer to be managed "principally" for wild horses/burros, that language is still in effect and still the prevailing law on all wild horse lands.
