Mustang Monument


Mustang Monument brings adventure travelers closer to America’s iconic Western culture and heritage in the wide-open plains of northern Nevada. Embodying an unbridled passion for the environment, Mustang Monument offers glamping at its best. Travelers saddle up for an authentic, all-American safari set on a 900-square mile ranch where wild mustangs roam free. Mustang Monument is the passion project of Madeleine Pickens, an American businesswoman and philanthropist, who initiated a personal mission to protect and preserve nearly 1,000 wild mustangs and help tell their story through the launch of her non-profit foundation, Saving America’s Mustang. Now, guests of the ranch can continue to tell the story as they meet these magnificent animals face to face in their natural habitat. The resort, available as a complete buy-out, houses 10 cozy cottages and a Western chic seven-bedroom home.

Embracing the frontier spirit, the ranch makes every day an inspiring adventure beginning with a breakfast meet and greet to feed the mustangs. Travelers rise and shine to the thundering soundtrack of the wild horses galloping about the property. Full-day trail rides or ATV Tours along the hilly terrain include a hearty lunch served amidst a picturesque backdrop of an 11,000 ft mountain range. Adventure awaits children from archery, baseball, wagon rides, games and horseback riding. An Overnight Sheep Wagon experience invites guests to gather under the stars surrounded by the calls of the wild to enjoy storytelling and a savory fireside dinner specially prepared by the Chef. An indigenous dance is performed around the flickering fire where Native American folklore sets the stage for a mystical encounter under the night sky’s vast constellations. Back at the ranch, guests can either gather at Ruby’s or The Saloon, complete with saddle stools at the bar, for group chats and cocktails.

America was discovered by horseback and the experience at Mustang Monument brings guests full circle as they reconnect with nature, loved ones and new friends to serve a higher purpose— sharing the story of the America’s wild mustangs.


Glamping with a western flair, Mustang Monument is available for exclusive-use and offers 10 luxury cottages in five buildings plus a seven bedroom home. The well-appointed luxury cottages measure 550 sq. ft and offer ample living space with plush leather chairs accented with Western design touches.
