Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse Adoption Saturday

Wild Horse Adoption
Jeff T. Green

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Wyoming Honor Farm will host a wild horse and burro adoption and gentling clinic May 16-17 in Riverton, Wyo.

According to a news release, on Friday, May 16, the Honor Farm will offer a free clinic to discuss the gentling program, followed by a preview of the horses. The clinic will feature demonstrations by Honor Farm Training Supervisor Jeff Martin focusing on catching a horse, advance and retreat, picking up feet, and beginning to ride. The gentling clinic runs from 1-3:30 p.m. and is open to the public.

On Saturday, May 17, the gates will open at 7:30 a.m., with the competitive bidding beginning at 10:30 a.m. All halter and saddle-started horses offered for adoption have been trailered and have had their feet handled. Applications for adoption will be accepted on both Friday and Saturday. A covered four-horse trailer with a swing gate is required to adopt.

The BLM and the Honor Farm have worked together for 26 years to train and adopt wild horses. The Honor Farm has found that the wild horse training program contributes to inmate rehabilitation success.

Photos of some of the horses up for adoption can be seen here.
