Adopt a Living Legend
It's estimated that nearly 50,000 wild mustangs and burros that have been rounded up by the BLM are now in government holding facilities. Many of them are available for adoption through BLM's adoption and sales events. Many of the captured mustangs are green and have not been saddled or ridden. However, there are some facilities that have a horse training program, which may appeal to the less experienced horse person.
The BLM's National Wild Horse & Burro Adoption Schedule is tentative. However, the website is updated frequently with current information. CLICK HERE for upcoming dates.
All Breeds and Disciplines
From draft horses to minis; all types of breeds can be found with horse rescues — donkeys and mules too! And if you're looking for an equine of a particular discipline, you can certainly find your next partner through adoption instead of purchasing from a breeder or a horse flipper.
