Wild Horses of Sand Wash Basin!

Welcome to Sand Wash Basin!

Sand Wash Basin is home to an extraordinary herd of wild horses. Located in the northwest corner of Colorado on public BLM land about 48 miles west of Craig, Colorado. Do visit the Sand Wash Basin Facebook page to view current photos as well as updates and information about the basin.

This website was created by Nadja Rider, a photographer with a passion for the wild horses! I'm not paid - simply a volunteer that helps document and monitor the horses. No one is currently licensed through BLM to offer guided tours, however if you visit our Facebook page, you will find many folks, including myself who are willing to offer tips and guidance for the first time visitor.
