The just opened Mustang Monument in Northern Nevada is flagged to become one of America’s premier Wild West wildlife adventure eco-resorts.
With over 900 square miles of mountainous reserve, this is where philanthropist Madeleine Pickens has set up Saving America’s Mustangs – a foundation for the preservation of America’s wild horses and home to 600 descendants of the wild horses that helped America’s pioneers settle the untamed West.
It’s also here that your family can enjoy sleeping in luxury teepees, riding in covered wagons and saddling up on authentic Western mustangs, just like the pioneers
There are horse-drawn and off-road vehicle safaris, calf roping lessons, archery, hiking, Native American beading classes, learning about the heritage and history of the Wild West and divine in-teepee spa treatments.
Form Guide America’s pioneering spirit given a luxury makeover.
Yearlings Ages 8 and over.
Pace Horse riding is key to the experience here, but so too is observing, learning about and photographing the beautiful mustangs.
Stables Luxuriously decked out teepees with king-size beds, fine linens, hardwood floors, hand-made Native American rugs, luxurious bathroom cabins and 24-hour butler service. A single child can share an adult’s teepee for a supplementary price; two or more children will be given a second teepee as per adult rates.
Feedbag Gourmet dining incorporates Native American flavours overlaid with modern Western flair whilst evenings in this outback-chic retreat conclude with cowboy balladeers strumming under starry skies and spellbinding fireside stories woven about the history of the American West and those magnificent, magical mustangs.
