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.

The park has received additional questions about naming of horses, current partnership status, and individuals posting information in electronic formats. There has been no change in park policy since launching of the FAQ in September, 2020. FAQs #1, #3, and #4 still represent the park's position on these topics. A new question about pedigrees and genetics has also arisen. Please see FAQ #16 in response to that inquiry.

We welcome your feedback. Please submit questions via this link. We will provide answers through the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section below.
