I went through Kistachie National Forest today and two horses ran out in the road in front of me on the Gum Springs Road! Scared me to death! I had to stop for a moment and just breathe. Has anybody else seen them and are they wild, do they belong to someone, or did someone just dump them out? What are horses doing up there anyway!

Thanks for the information. I know that was scary. The prison has horses; don't know if they had escapees or not. YOU might phone them to see if they are missing any horses and tell them of your sightings.

This was on the Gum Springs gravel side by Calvin, not the prison side

This is a two year late answer but yes, Kisatchie National Forest does have wild horses but also I know someone who found a tame apparently abandoned horse in the forest too (he took it and gave it a good home) about 3 weeks ago.

So they could have been either wild or abandoned horses. Im guessing they were wild.

You shoud call animal control. I have never heard of wild horses any where in Winn Parish. What if some riders were in trouble? And it being turkey season is not a good time for them to be running loose. Maybe someone that could not keep them any longer and dumped them like they do their dogs all the time :(

Ancient Breed of Amphibious Swamp Bred Mustangs. I guess they've escaped from the tunnels.

I have ridden horses through there many, many times. Yes, there are some wild horses. There are also a few domesticated horses there that owners turned loose.
