Wild Horse Adoption In Wheatland
The Bureau of Land Management and the Mantle Wild Horse Adoption and Training Center will host a wild horse adoption on Saturday, June 23rd in Wheatland.
Adoption applications will be accepted beginning at 8 a.m. Approximately 10 saddle-started and halter trained wild horses will be available for viewing from 8 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Each horse will be ridden to demonstrate its ability and level of training.
The competitive bid adoption will begin at 1:30 p.m. The minimum bid for a horse is $125. Wyoming Wild Horse and Burro Program Lead June Wendlandt says the horses up for adoption “will make wonderful trail horses or could definitely move on into about any discipline of riding that an adopter may want to take them.”
To adopt a horse, an applicant must be 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and have at least a 400-square-foot pen for each horse adopted. A covered horse trailer with a swing gate is required for horse transportation.
The Mantle Wild Horse Adoption and Training Center is located at 615 South Antelope Creek Road. From exit 68, turn south on Antelope Creek Road. Proceed 6.5 miles to the ranch
