Our federally registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible Public Charity EIN 47-1320574 preserves and protects the genetically unique, critically endangered Heritage Horses of Oklahoma. Many of these horses' ancestors carried Native American tribal members along the Trail of Tears from their original homelands to "Indian Territory" preserving the family bloodlines. DNA testing has confirmed historical accounts of these horses originally being obtained from De Soto's Spanish Conquistadores, and carefully bred for their enduring characteristics of gentleness and gait. The Heritage Horses of Oklahoma, is also known as the "Spanish Mustang of Blackjack Mountain," and are sometimes referred to as "Colonial Spanish Horses". Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Choctaw Ponies are included as well as other Tribal Horses. This breed immortalized the Pony Express and starred in the movie "Hidalgo". They have saved many lives throughout history, and now it's our turn to save them.
