Arizona remains an ancient and largely untamed land. And the wild horses of Heber are a stirring and present reminder of the state’s rich and undomesticated history. Yes, I said wild horses. The Black Canyon Lake area of Heber, Arizona is home to some of the most majestic wild horses in the US. Witnessing these beautiful creatures in their natural environment will give you a sense of awe and a deep appreciation for the history of this unique part of the world. Be aware, though, these are not petting zoo ponies. These animals are as elusive, untamed and as mysterious as the land they roam. If you spot a herd, drink it in and consider yourself part of the fortunate few. Some say it’s a truly soul stirring experience.
