Across the American frontier, there are tens of thousands of wild horses running through the west with an increasingly tense dispute over their future.
The Bureau of Land Management says their numbers continue to grow at an unmanageable rate, despite years of removing wild horses from the range to enclosed pastures so that wildlife and livestock can share the land.
Despite deep differences on how the animals should be managed, both sides agree on the issue in that it has reached a tipping point.
These days, the temporary holding pens and long-term pastures where many wild horses end up are close to capacity or full and the cost of caring for them has grown exponentially over the past decade.
The Right Horse is an initiative funded by the Watershed Animal Fund, a division of the Arnall Family Foundation dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals. The goal is to massively increase the number of successful horse adoptions in the United States by working together to reframe the adoption conversation and shatter the stigma surrounding horses in transition.
