Dead Horse Point is a small plateau standing 2000 ft. surrounded by sheer cliffs above a bend in the Colorado River. Cowboys in the 19th Century used this area to round up wild horses because it was an easy place to fence off so horses wouldn’t run away. The cowboys would then use this area to break horses, keep the good ones and then let the unwanted horses run back into the open range. The legend has it that one time the horses for whatever reason didn’t leave and died from thirst, which is ironic since the Colorado River was in full view from the plateau.
