Horses of the Badlands

On the north side of I-94, near the town of Medora, ND, you’ll find Theodore Roosevelt National Park.  It consists of three areas: North Unit, South Unit, Elkhorn Ranch Unit.

A video overview appears on this page.

Wild horses roam the South Unit, along with bison and other wildlife.  The horses, of course, are subject to ‘humane’ management practices.  Excess horses are offered for adoption through the General Services Administration.  The North Dakota Badlands Horse Registry maintains a database of adopted horses and advocates for WH preservation in TRNP.

The park is managed by the NPS, not the BLM.
