BLM Adoption Form
We do all the heavy lifting, so to speak. We visit the holding facilities and after carefully evaluating the available gathered horses, pick the most desirable and transport them to our training facility. We gentle the horse per the requirements of the BLM and then offer the horses for adoption for $125. Adoption decisons are the BLM's and fees are paid directly to them. We are compensated by the BLM. Interested parties are welcome to watch the training and participate.
First Come First Earned
Call or email us to get the process started. Full disclosure: I work with horses between 10 and 14 hours a day - everyday. So I rerely answer the phone and check emails after dark. You are welcome to text me as I check that more frequently (mostly when I'm driving)
Why Adopt from Us
Putting aside the nearly 30 years of horse training experience, we utilize BLM aproved trailers to transport mustangs as well as board their horses at our certified facility (backed up by site visits from the Bureau of Land Management).
To be aproved to apdopt a wild horse on your own, your facilities must meet minimum requirements, including an outside corral with a minimum of 400 square feet (20x20) per animal (and not more than 50x50). All fences and gates must be at least six-feet high. Fencing material should be wooden planks spaced no more than one foot apart. Absolutely no barb wire, electric wire, T-posts, or high-tensile tubing. However, once a mustang is gentled, the BLM will allow the horses to be maintained in pastures or in box stalls with daily turnout.
Although the BLM has established basic training requirements (halter broke, able to pickup feet and trailer load), we always exceed minimum. The Equestrian has earned national and international reputation for its foundation training of horses. Your prospecive horse will recieve the same attention and fooundation training as all our horses.
