This herd of wild horses has been observed in the Tehachapi Mountains for at least 100 years. The herd size is varied as they roam throughout the meadows of Oak Creek Canyon. These horses are unbranded and free-roaming and found on Oak Creek Canyon Ranch range. The consensus is they may possibly be descendants of animals released by or escaped from early ranchers, miners, soldiers, or Native Americans. They do, however, have a strong resemblance to the Morgan horse breed.
We will meet at the gate on Tehachapi-Willow Springs Road and Oak Creek Road no later than 10:30AM.
Everyone will be required to sign a liability release at the meeting point.
