The Bureau of Land Management released 14 wild horses to the Hardtrigger Herd Management Area Wednesday, May 29.

The area was burned by the Soda Fire back in 2015. The BLM had gathered the horses after the fire and had been caring for them until they could return to the range.

“We were pleased to offer people this unique and special opportunity to watch this first group of wild horses return to the Hardtrigger this morning,” said Boise District Manager Lara Douglas. “We recognize how important it is to manage healthy wild horses on healthy rangelands.”

Nearly 300 people from all over the northwest came to watch the horses.
