” Wild horses still roam freely in the Pryor Mountains outside of Lovell, Wyoming. This herd of horses is very special because of its Colonial Spanish American heritage. This tough little horse, derived from the horses of Portugal and Spain, has been present in this rugged mountain area for nearly 200 years. If lost, the herd cannot be restored; and so its biological viability, together with its history, must be preserved.
It is the purpose of the PRYOR MOUNTAIN WILD MUSTANG CENTER to do just that. The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is a public, nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational institution, unique in purpose and location. The Center is working towards becoming the foremost wild horse educational institution in the world. Your donations can help!”
Cowley is a picturesque little town full of family fun and rich in history located just 5 miles from Lovell, WY, and just a few miles south of the Montana border. The town of Cowley was settled by a group of Mormon pioneers called to settle Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin. The town was named in honor of Matthias F. Cowley, one of the Apostles of the LDS Church at the time. The first company of pioneers arrived in the area on May 2, 1900, and began the construction of the Sidon Canal to bring water to the town from the Shoshone River. The canal was over 30 miles long and was not completed until 1904.
Today Cowley is known for its excellent Education System it’s draw as a fantastic place for young family’s to settle. Each July, Cowley hosts an annual celebration, known locally as “Cowley Pioneer Day”, which is held on the Weekend closest to July 24, to commemorate the town’s pioneer heritage. The celebration usually packs in a range of activities including a parade, pioneer heritage program, rodeo, dance, and town barbecue. Cowley’s pioneer heritage is also remembered year-round in the Cowley Pioneer Museum, located on Main Street in Cowley, in the same building as the town hall.
