We've pasted UFWDA's News Update below. Please take a minute to read it over, take action and then pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

Stop A HUGE New Mexico Land Grab
It is easy to make a difference! Please take a few minutes to help convince President Obama NOT create a new 500,000 acre National Monument in southern New Mexico.
New Mexico Senators Udall/Heinrich and radical environmentalists are pressuring President Obama to create a new 500,000 acre National Monument in southern New Mexico including 260,000 acres of NEW wilderness. This would cover 20% of Dona Ana County and would threaten historic ranching and motorized recreation uses.
The Senators are claiming this huge land grab has the overwhelming support of the public. Sign the petition and let the President know that this is simply not true.
Take two minutes to sign the petition against the the 500,000 acre Udall/Heinrich land grab in Dona Ana County.
Here is the link to the petition:
Thank you and please help us forward this to organizations and people who can help.
