Our purpose is to educate the general public on wild-born horse issues through the implementation of programs, which reinforce the need for preservation, protection, and management while promoting a more positive image of the wild-born horse.
We provide support and mentoring to those persons who have or will adopt wild-born horses from the Bureau of Land Management or any other agency or organization, which makes wild-born horses available to the general public. This support and mentoring is made available through the implementation of training and mentoring programs that educate adopters and future adopters in learning the skills and methods of gentling and handling wild-born horses using natural horsemanship techniques. These programs are offered for the development of a positive relationship between horse and human leading to the long-term success of wild-born adoption programs.
What Do We Do?
In a nutshell, we provide help and assistance to people who have adopted or will adopt a wild horse or burro through the BLM. Wild horses and burros are wonderful animals and can be a great addition to your family. However, new adopters are often overwhelmed at the prospect of training and caring for a newly adopted wild horse or burro. ThatÝs where we can help. Adopters can call one of our member advisors to answer questions and ask for advice. Our member list will be available through the BLM or you can contact a board member to be put in touch with someone whose abilities match your needs.
What Training Methods Do You Use and Share?
The methods we use are gentle; we do not teach people how to break horses and burros in the traditional sense of the word. We work with the horse's spirit and mind and work as a partner with them. This enables a long-lasting bond to form between human and animal. We have learned some of our methods from well-known trainers throughout the country and other methods we use are self-taught through experience. Most of our current members have adopted and successfully trained wild horses and burros of their own.
