Our Story

HORSE POWER is a non-profit organization whose focus is on preservation of wild Mustang horses and Burros. Through contributions and support from individuals like you, we can educate people and groups, raise awareness, and contribute to the real life needs of these beautiful animals.

The History of Horse Power

Because a lot of Nevadan’s (including some Las Vegas elementary students and their teacher) cared, gave of their time and talents and helped obtain necessary signatures, Horse Power was able to submit a license plate design that was approved on January 22, 2007, by the Commission on Special License Plates, chaired by Senator Dennis Nolan.

The Vision

The vision for this plate began with Sally Summers almost 10 years ago after 33 horses were found senselessly slaughtered in Storey County, Nevada. Her hope, along with others, was to raise funds to help the plight of the wild horses and burros and to keep them from disappearing from our land. Many articles have been written in Nevada newspapers about this plate, its birth and how the proceeds will help the second chance horses and burros receive protection, shelter, good care and homes. There are also several Public Service Announcements being aired in Northern and Southern Nevada.

The Cause

A portion of the proceeds from the purchase of this plate will go to support our cause. By purchasing a plate, we can all help protect and ensure the Mustangs and Burros remain “wild and free.” They are an integral part of our western heritage and a legacy that we want to leave for future generations.
