Lakota’s Gift 2017

Lakota 2
Lakota, July, 2011

This year will be the 4th year of “Lakota’s Gift”.  For the past 4 seasons, I have awarded a four day camping  trip to an inspiring Pryor Mountain Wild Horse follower in honor of my favorite horse, Lakota.  This person needs to be passionate about this special herd of horses and have some basic knowledge about them.

To be considered for this award, please submit an essay telling  why you should be awarded this gift.  Please include some information about yourself,  what you know about the horses and what you hope to give back to the horses by being selected for this award.  All essays must be submitted by February 1, 2017.

All trips start and end in Cody, Wyoming.

Past recipients of this award have been: Jonathan Stander, Brianna Harvey, Abbie Branchflower and Lexi.

You can submit your essay to this email:


Below is a slideshow of some of the many photos that I have taken of Lakota.  Please give it sometime to upload before trying to view.

  • Sandy,
    Love the horses and love your blog.
    I have been to the Pryor’s a few years back and was lucky enough to see some of the horses.
    I thought I would leave you and your followers a gift of music.
    “All The Wild Horses by Ray LaMontagne” Maybe you have heard it?

    “All the wild horses
    All the wild horses
    Tethered with tears in their eyes
    May no man’s touch ever tame
    May no man’s reigns ever chain you
    And may no man’s weight ever defrayed your soul
    And as for the clouds
    Just let them roll
    Roll away
    Roll away
    As for the clouds
    Just let them roll
    Roll away
    Roll away”

    I believe it is a fitting theme song for your passion.
    Randy Eggum
