NORTH DAKOTA BADLANDS HORSE is looking for potential buyers for the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.  Periodic removals are deemed necessary by the park to keep the delicate balance between large ungulates
( bison, elk, horses, deer, and pronghorn) and native vegetation, but park staff wants to avoid large roundups and removal of large numbers of horses.  Therefore Theodore Roosevelt National Park (TRNP) and North Dakota Badlands Horse (NDBH) have entered into a Partnership agreement in which NDBH volunteers will help in small captures of horses and will be responsible for finding good homes for culled horses.  Since neither TRNP nor NDBH want horses to be vulnerable to slaughter buyers, we have developed a process of qualifying potential buyers.  Wild horses from TRNP may ONLY be purchased by pre-qualified buyers, so, if you are interested in possibly purchasing one of these wonderful horses, give us your name, address, email, and phone # by emailing:
or by private message on:

Don't miss out and don't forget to tell your friends about this exciting opportunity to own a part of history !
