Wild Horse Sanctuary
Wilson Hill Road
California 96088


The mission at this 5,000 acre sanctuary is to protect and preserve America's wild horses as a living national treasure in a publicly accessible and ecologically balanced environment with other wildlife for future generations. There are nearly 300 wild horses and burros that roam this sanctuary, including the Phantom Stallion, whose both history and looks bear a striking resemblance to the Phantom Stallion in author Terri Farley's popular Phantom Stallion book series. The sanctuary's goals are to increase public awareness of the values of America's wild horses through pack trips on the sanctuary, media, and public outreach programs. They want to continue to develop a working replicable model for the proper and responsible management of wild horses in their natural habitat. They are demonstrating that wild horses can co-exist on the open range in ecological balance with many diverse species of wildlife. In addition to the sanctuary's trail rides and cattle drives, they usually hold a few open houses each year, and are open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm for wild horse viewing. Donations made to this non-profit organization go towards helping to feed the wild horses when grazing is scarce, purchasing adjoining land for more wild horses, completing their visitors' center and museum and more. To get there from Interstate 5 heading north, take the 2nd Red Bluff exit toward Lassen Park. Drive about 1 mile. Turn left at the next Lassen Park sign onto Highway 36. Go 10 miles on Highway 36, watch for the sign to Manton and then turn left on A-6. Go 16 miles to Manton and turn left at Manton Corners' store. Follow the road toward Shingletown for 3 1/2 miles to the Wild Horse Sanctuary. From Interstate 5 heading south, in Redding, take the Highway 44 East exit. Go about 30 miles to Shingletown. Turn right on Wilson Hill Road (the library is on the corner). Go 5 miles and watch for the sign on the right.
