We educate the community about our program and partnership with the BLM, and other agencies and organizations that work to maintain the horses, in their native wild habitat.

​We act as a go between when wild horses visit residents who prefer that horses stay off their property.

​We host local meetings and events that raise awareness and financial support for the efforts to maintain the population, health and safety of the Pine Nut Mountain horses.


In 2013, Gardnerville residents stood up to oppose a BLM proposal to remove the wild horses living in the Fish Springs area of the Pine Nut Mountains Herd Area. The BLM held a series of public meetings  concerning the management of the Fish Springs wild horses. Hundreds of local residents attended these meetings stating their strong support for keeping the wild horses in and around Fish Springs and opposing the BLM’s proposal to remove the horses. Pine Nut Wild Horse Advocates, a 501(c)3 non profit, was created by our  community to work with BLM to humanely manage wild horses in Fish Springs area. As a result in 2014, the BLM Sierra Front Field Office initiated the “Fish Springs Wild Horses PZP Pilot Project.” PNWHA is proud to partner with BLM to humanely manage this small herd of wild horses.
