The Native American Horse Trail (NAHT) was founded in 2014. The NAHT is a partnership of horse sanctuaries across North America that is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the Native American Horse. Although each location has its unique focal points, our alliance is firmly committed to providing opportunities for people to learn about the history of the horse in the Americas, and to experience these creatures in their natural environments or on traditional lands...

​We are a research, education, and preservation facility that is home to a foundation herd of between 80 and 90 Indigenous Native American horses. The origin of these horses can be traced to Native Peoples across North America.

Our Mission is to educate the world regarding the true history of the horse in the Americas and its relationship with the Indigenous Peoples. This historical reconstruction has been compiled by combining Traditional Knowledge from a number of Native Nations with cutting edge academic research.
 
We advocate for the preservation of the very rare Indigenous horse of the Americas, and facilitate its return to our Native communities.
 
Our Governing Council of Traditional Native Elders and Scholars from the United States and Canada ensure the information we present, our Interpretive Center, and horse husbandry techniques are all culturally, historically, and spiritually accurate and in line with traditional protocols.​
