About Let'em Run Foundation

The Let 'em Run Foundation is a strictly volunteer organization engaged in protecting and preserving one of America's greatest native inhabitants; the wild horse, who is now known to have originated in Northern Nevada. We work tirelessly to insure the survival of these majectic creatures for generations to come.
Our Foundation

The Let 'em Run Foundation was founded in April 1999 by internationally acclaimed country and western recording star, Lacy J. Dalton, and received its 501(c)(3) certification from the Internal Revenue Service in February 2004. Since that time, the Foundation has been devoted to the survival of America's wild horses and burros.
