Meet Justin Morgan an Oak Creek Wild Horse.
Found in the mountains of Tehachapi, Ca. there is a herd of about 100 wild horses that have been observed feral for at least 100 years.
These horses are unbranded and free-roaming. They have a strong resemblance to the Morgan horse breed and even have one less rib, just as Morgans do. (I believe they are purebreds!)
Follow Justin's fun video path from roaming with a wild herd to becoming a competitive trail horse.
Taking a wild horse, aka: animal of prey, from his free roaming wild life and asking him to trust a human, aka: a predator, is a journey of patience and mutual respect.
It takes understanding and communication to create a bond between these two species, and getting it done without fear or force is essential.
Justin is a kind and innocent soul who deserves to be handled with compassion, wisdom, and expertise. Enjoy his journey!
