New Plate Captures the Struggle of America’s Wild Horses

The new specialty plate for the Virginia Range mustangs features an image of ‘Ghost,’ a stallion that roams the hills near Hidden Valley, east of Reno, NV.

It symbolizes the ruggedness of wild horses and their uphill battle against those who want them removed from western rangelands.

The plate will be available to drivers across the state and a collector’s version will be offered to individuals outside of Nevada.

The Virginia Range is ‘ground zero’ in the wild horse preservation movement, launched in 1950 by Velma Johnston.
