Kiger Mustang Lookout

Kiger Mustang Lookout Review

Not far from town is this wild-horse viewing area run by the Bureau of Land Management. With their dun-color coats, zebra stripes on knees and hocks, and hooked ear tips, the Kiger mustangs are perhaps one of the purest herds of wild Spanish mustangs in the world today. Once thought to be the descendants of Barb horses brought by the Spanish to North America in the 16th century, the Kiger horses remain the most sought-after for adoption throughout the country. The viewing area is accessible to high-clearance vehicles only, and is passable only in dry weather.
