Michael founded the WindDancer Foundation in the fall of 1996. His first exposure to mustangs came with reading Hope Ryden's book, "America's Last Wild Horses." A chapter entitled "A Mustang Massacre" touched his heart and inspired his creation of the WindDancer Foundation. The focus of the Foundation is to educate the public about the plight of both the mustang and burro roaming on our public lands. Specifically for their needs and the ability to survive on those lands as was intended by the passage of the "Wild Horse & Burro Act of 1971" for generations to come. Yet the Act of 1971 was amended by the “Public Range Improvement Act of 1978 (PRIA)" and has weakened those previous protections. The WindDancer Foundation will educate and provide the leadership quality to become an advocate for these beautiful animals.
Michael hasn't started any petitions yet.
