- If you've ever wanted to see a wild mustang up close and personal, then this is the place. Nevada is home to more wild horses than any other state. Unfortunately, there isn't enough food and water to sustain all of them, and this facility is here to give them a helping hand. The Bureau of Land Management rounds up approximately 4,000 of these critters per year, brings them to the center for good food and medical treatment, and prepares them for adoption to good homes. You pay a fee for the horse, and you must maintain the animal for one year before you are given title. Contrary to popular misconception, the mustangs can be domesticated and many become excellent ranch and pleasure horses. You will find this facility about 15 miles north of Sparks on the way to Pyramid Lake.
