A Few Words About Mowdy Ranch

Oklahoma's ONLY wild mustang ecosanctuary dedicated to tourism.

Mowdy Ranch is now the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM)’s second wild horse ecosanctuary in the United States. Located 12 miles NE of Coalgate in the hills of southeastern Oklahoma, Mowdy Ranch is now offering daily photographic tours and lodging facilities for wild horse enthusiasts. Mowdy Ranch comprises 4000 acres of wooded hills and open valleys in southeastern Oklahoma, the historical home of the legendary Choctaw ponies. The Choctaw ponies were famous for their toughness and endurance which was showcased in the film “Hidalgo”. Mowdy Ranch has now dedicated 1280 acres of the ranch as a wild horse sanctuary and currently houses 153 wild horses on a long term basis. Mowdy Ranch is owned by Clay and Kit Mowdy whose children are the fifth generation to live and work on the ranch. The ranch has two lodges which are capable of sleeping up to 32 people and has kitchen and dining facilities which can accommodate larger groups and special events.


There are few things in this world as beautiful as the wild mustangs of North America. Tough, resilient and independent the mustangs that make the home at Mowdy Ranch are truely wild animals. At Mowdy Ranch, we strive to maintain the wild nature of the horses but also provide them with the care and love they deserve. Here the horses have lush pasture in warm months and hay and feed during the winter. We monitor the horses daily to insure they remain healthy and happy on their range. Our mission is to give these great animals a second chance at a great life.


For a truly memorable experience, we hope you will visit us at Mowdy Ranch and enjoy a chance to observe one of the great American Icons, the wild horse of North America, the Mustang.
