Wild Horses of Utah
September 1-4, 2023
Max 3 participants for this tour.
Non-refundable retainer: $500
Physical Demand: Intermediate - several miles of walking over relatively level ground of sand, grass, and gravel. Potential for high heat and no shade. Bumpy, rough roads that could be aggravating to those with musculoskeletal issues.
Wild mustangs are the living legends of the West. Surrounded by the rugged landscapes of the American Southwest, we will head out into the vast rangelands south of Salt Lake City. Here we will have the opportunity to observe and photograph one of the most popular wild horse herds in the west: the Onaqui herds. This tour coincides with the driest part of the year, when the herds must come to water several times a day. With limited water sources, the bands concentrate on the watering holes still available to them. Our focus will be to capture the daily lives and interactions of these bands while mitigating the effects of the heat. We will primarily be photographing in the early morning and late afternoon when the lighting is best and herds are most active. During the day, we will have downtime to review, edit, and critique images.
