On Friday we went over to check out the Salt River wild horses and we actually found several! We saw more, but I was not able to capture them on video. We actually spotted the horses in this video along the highway, but you may have good success at Phon D Sutton Recreation Area (first moments of video shows this area).
I was quite happy to find a place I could fly my drone!

Here’s a possible itinerary if you are looking to go see horses:
- First stop: Phon D Sutton Recreation Area, Fort McDowell, AZ 85264
- Second Stop: Coon Bluff Campground, Coon Bluff Rd, Mesa, AZ 85215
- Third stop: Butcher Jones Recreation Site, Fort McDowell, AZ 85264
Expect about a 6 hour trip if you’re visiting each of these places and driving from the metro-Phoenix area.
