AboutAmerican Legends & Wild Horses

American Legend & Wild Horses (ALWH) is the creation of internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter and recording artist, Lacy J. Dalton, and her Let 'em Run Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to help and support Nevada's wild horses.  Building upon the success of the 2014 Virginia City Wild Horse Faire, the first fundraising activity which combined the resources of various wild horse advocacy groups, ALWH joins the forces of the Let 'em Run Foundation, the Western States Wild Horse and Burro Expo, the 5 Clover RanchBently Ranch, Bently Heritage, the Carson Valley Inn, the Carson Valley Visitors Authority, and Douglas County, Nevada to create a free two (2) day extravaganza to raise funds, awareness, and support for Nevada's wild horses and burros. 


All funds raised during this event will go directly to the wild horses and burros.  With the exception of monies paid to service providers and suppliers, no persons or organizations involved in this event will receive compensation.  This event is graciously supported by the men, women, and organizations dedicated to the preservation and survival of the wild horses and burros.

Volunteers are always welcome!
