Karen Sussman’s private land has seen Stephen Spielberg’s crew and Kevin Costner from “Dancing with Wolves”, Author, Michael Blake, Actress, Stephie Powers, and numerous other stars, interested parties and Wowed animal loving folks.
Karen Sussman is charming as well as educated about 400 hundred horses. She is the only women in the world with (4) wild horse herds. Karen has navigated herself to talk in front of Congress and has met with the most resistant to mediate the lives of wild burro's after an the blood bath near Oatman, AZ. The battle of minds was settled by Karen’s dedication and guidance about other methods besides slaughter.
Karen raised her children in Scottsdale, AZ. She then felt a deep longing which invited by a calling to help USA’s horse herds. Nothing is impossible for Karen she has help organized the freedom for the Apache Sitgrave horses with Dr. Pat Haigh and the only free herd wild horses. She assisted to moving buffalos from Catalina Island to South Dakota keep them as an American symbol, yet her dreams got bigger.
Karen feels comfortable on her rural South Dakota farm and conservation with hundreds of acres on grazing prairie. The Lakota believe they would have a person come to them to re-unit the horses with their culture. The horse was used in ceremonies, games, hunting, and war and in everyday life. The horse was a symbol of freedom, strength, pride and courage. The Indian people believe that they had the horse long before the Spanish arrived. The horse was bred for specific purposes. A fast pony was a highly cherished animal with the Indian people. Today we have the privilege of having the wild horse in our midst again. As the Indian people search for their roots and regain their ceremonies.
Princeton University is coming this summer to research the behavior of wild horses in natural herds and its founding president “Wild Horse Annie” is going to Hollywood.
