"The horses of the Plains had a profound effect on the lives of indigenous people and are treated with great spiritual respect among American Indians. I fully support and endorse the work of Thundering Hooves. If we don't protect and preserve these sacred animals, they could be lost to us forever."  ~ Lynny Prince
