PHOENIX — 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 positive development and the first step to ensure that the Salt River horses can roam without fear of danger or harassment," Arizona Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Sharma Torrens said. "We look forward to continuing this important collaboration and process."
