With the encouragement of family and friends, Sandy started this blog in February 2012.
Born and raised in Michigan, Sandy has lived in Montana since 1992 and now lives, with her husband Bill, in Potomac, Montana.
Each year Sandy spends several weeks in the Pryors, camping at the very top of the 8,500 foot mountain when weather permits. This past year (2013), the number of days on the mountain equaled almost 9 weeks.
Not only does Sandy take photos, but she also is a videographer. Her current entry is a video project with Singer/songwriter Sharon Anderson. Together along with Randy Nagel and Chas Williams they produced a beautiful music video; “Wild Caballo”, to honor the wild horses. This video was selected as a finalist in the International Wildlife Film Festival. She has donated several DVD’s of this to the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center.
Sandy’s goal for her photography and video work is to share her experiences and allow as many people as possible to get a glimpse into the lives of these beautiful animals and also to reach out and communicate with all sides involved with them.
Her blog “Wild in the Pryors” allows you to follow her many trips to the Pryors. She shares stories, photos and information about this herd of special wild horses.
When Sandy is not camping in the Pryors she can be found playing with her own horses (3 of which are Pryor Mountain Horses) or riding in the mountains on the miles of trails surrounding her home.
In the summer of 2013, Sandy began giving guided day and camping tour trips on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. She has acquired all necessary permits from the BLM and The Bighorn Canyon Recreational Area in order to do this. Please click on CAMPING to find out more about her 2014 tour schedule and to read some reviews from her 2013 guests.
Thank you to all that read this blog and become interested in these beautiful horses. Together we can make a difference.
All photos are available for purchase. Email her for details and prices.
