Black Rock Desert and Soldier Meadows
Nevada’s Soldier Meadows is at the edge of the Black Rock Desert which is now famous for the Burning Man Festival, but it was once a Civil War remount station. There, horses were trained horses to replace those killed died on bloody battlefields. Descendants of hot blooded officers’ mounts and heavy horses schooled to pull cannons can be recognized in the Calico and Granite Range mountains.
Coming to Soldier Meadows blends together rich, vibrant history and true outdoor adventure.
