Wild Horses have roamed freely in Alberta for over 100 years and probably much longer.  DNA testing has proven that they have been wild for so many generations that they have truly become their own breed. They range along the Rocky Mountain Foothills from the Elbow River watershed, north through the Ghost and Red Deer River regions and beyond. Known by locals simply as “wildies”, these horses are essentially without name or title but remain an important cultural symbol of Alberta’s heritage and the Spirit of the West.
