Are you ready to adopt a wild horse or burro? Just follow these easy steps.
Providing a home for a wild horse or burro is a challenging and rewarding experience. For qualified individuals, this is a unique opportunity to care for, then own, a wild horse (Mustang) or burro.
When you arrive at the event, locate the BLM booth where you will find an adoption application. Please read the Requirements Page before you submit an application to determine if your facility meets all BLM requirements. Include exact information about the length, width, and height of your corral and shelter, and the type of materials used in the construction. Applications cannot be approved until all construction or modifications are completed. Corrals must be 5 feet high for burros; yearlings and trained horses; and 6 feet high for untrained horses 2 years and older. BLM should be on-site to review and approve your application. Once approved, BLM will provide you with a bidders number. You will use the bidder number to place a bid during the live adoption auction following the freestyle finals. A ticket is required to attend the Top 10 Freestyle Finals but, doors will open immediately following the Top 10 Finals and you may attend the adoption auction without a ticket.
Attend a Extreme Mustang Makeover and bid on one of the trained mustangs at the event.
