After years of controversy and uncertainty, representatives for Arizona and the federal government say they have reached an agreement that will ensure the long-term protection of the free-roaming horses near the Salt River.

The Arizona Department of Agriculture and U.S. Forest Service had until Dec. 31 to ink a management deal for the horses.

With little time to spare, the two government agencies announced Friday they had reached an agreement.

“This is a wonderful compromise between state and federal agencies to ensure the survival of an iconic band of horses whose beauty is enjoyed by so many who live in and visit Maricopa County.”
