Welcome to Utah's Iconic Wild West 

Providing year-round ethically based & environmentally friendly wild horse photography tours 

The Onaqui Wild Horse HMA (herd management area) is located in the West Desert and encompasses 321 square miles just a short drive southwest from Salt Lake City, Utah.  The picturesque valley extends from Johnson's Pass to Lookout Pass and offers background views of the Cedar Mountains, Stansbury Mountains and Simpson Mountains.

Ecollogically conscious private tours are provided year round, weather permitting, to provide professional photographers, explorers and horse lovers alike a unique opportunity to observe and capture images of these iconic wild horses. 

My tours are taylored to accomodate any photography skill level and a spacious 4x4 vehicle is used to follow marked dirt roads leading to remote mountain and/or desert areas.  (Driving off pre-established dirt roads is not permitted as it is very damaging to our fragile desert ecosystem and a fire hazard) 

My guests will be provided with comprehensive information about the Onaqui herds, band structure and individual horses.  You'll learn their names, stories and what challenges they have had and may still face both on and off the range.  You'll also learn in real time about wild horse behavior and how to read their body language, mannerisms and interactions.  More specific range information can be found here.

Why book local?  By choosing to accompany me on range you are getting the advantage of a unique and customizable experience from someone who's life is entrenched the wild horses on a daily basis.  The hours I've spent documenting the herd, the individual family members, their locations, patterns, hide outs and likes and dislikes helps me to help you to maximize your time in the desert.  It also helps you to feel confident that our time with the wild horses is done in a way that is most at harmony with their location and comfort levels and with the intention of preserving their natural behaviors and surrounding ecological resources for years to come.
