Strange “Horse-Like” Creature Spotted in Prescott, Arizona

“Its face was round. Brown/beige fur. The fur formed a shaggy beard, almost mountain man-like.”

The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word cryptid as “An animal whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the yeti.”  For the following witnesses to living cryptids, there is no dispute. In this series of National Cryptid Society’s case files, you will read what the witnesses have experienced in their own words. 

Keep an open mind when reading these accounts, and also remember one’s perception and memory of an event can be influenced by the emotions felt at the time of the occurrence. The contributors to this series of articles are doing the best they can to recount what are in some cases very shocking and traumatic experiences.

If you have a personal cryptid sighting story you would like to tell us, please visit our “Make A Report” page on this site.

“Prescott is surrounded by national forest on two or three sides. The area near Thumb Butte is a very dreamlike atmosphere. My 2011 sighting was confirmed by a family in 2018. I was at Thumb Butte Road in Prescott at the city limits sign on my bike.

Suddenly, 2-3 houses in front of me (100 feet or less) was a 4-legged creature that was as big as a horse. It had four long legs like a horse. It immediately tensed up its whole body, ready to fight if necessary. Its face was round. Brown/beige fur. The fur formed a shaggy beard, almost mountain man-like. It was long at the chin and cheeks. I was on bicycle.

I hopped off and slowly walked backwards. Then I found another route to town. It was 3pm in 2011. Most people on that road aren’t home at that hour. It’s very quiet. In 2018, may friend told me that his neighbor saw the same creature near Thumb Butte in the forest. His kids saw it, and he didn’t believe them. They pointed this creature out, and he saw it, too. Same description. Horse-size and the other features.”

4 thoughts on “Strange “Horse-Like” Creature Spotted in Prescott, Arizona

  1. I live just north of Prescott about 25 minutes from this area. I am engaged in searching for this amazing creature I have surnamed “Clovis”. I will report back any findings.


    1. I submitted the info for the above article. The second sighting by the family was also on Thumb Butte Rd, but within the national forest. They live in a house a little past the White Rock Trailhead if you’re coming in from town. My friend who is friends with them told me at White Rock Trailhead about their sighting. He pointed “Over there” to give me a general sense of where they lived, and I believe he said they lived on Thumb Butte Rd.


    2. .. And the photo is inaccurate. The head is round like a cat. It has a chomper, meaning it doesn’t eat grass. It eats animals. The fur sticks out in all directions on the face. Really messy, and it’s also brown fur. And it really knows how to do a mean facial expression.


    3. … And REALLY expressive eyes, like a cat or a human. And that man and his kids weren’t neighbors of my friend. If I wrote that they were his neighbors, that was a brain fart. My friend lived near city limits, where I saw “Clovis.” That family was a little past White Rock Trail Head like I said in a comment. Be careful if you see it. It was very hostile and in lunging position.
