San Luis, Costilla County, Colorado

Wild Horse Mesa (also known as San Pedro Mesa) covers about 75 square miles, a few miles south of San Luis, near New Mexico.  The mesa area is home to about 150 wild horses (mustangs), broken into 9 bands, roaming on private lands.  They are descendants of horses used by Spanish explorers (conquistadors), brought to America in the 1500’s.  Spaniards began bringing horses and cattle to North America starting in 1493, after Columbus landed in 1492.  Spanish explorer Vazquez de Coronado visited this region, crossing northern New Mexico, looking for the Seven Cities of Gold in his expedition of 1540-1542.
