The horses at Theodore Roosevelt National Park are a demonstration herd for visitor enjoyment. Their presence represents Theodore Roosevelt's experiences here during the open-range ranching era. From this page, you can learn about the history and management of the herd, and the park's adoption program.

For the safety of our staff and the horses, we will not release detailed information pertaining to sensitive management operations.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park will be postponing horse captures for the remainder of 2021 due to minimal staffing and an increased program focus on wildfire preparedness and response. Staff will continue administering contraceptives to herd mares to mitigate population growth and its associated impacts on other wildlife.
