Mission

We work with wild horse programs to minimize captive horse suffering, promote modern training methods, and campaign to create successful adoptive placements.

W​e:

  1. Find effective methods to train all ages of mustangs;
  2. Facilitate successful placement of mustangs in adoptive homes;
  3. Educate individuals in the process of training and placement;
  4. Conduct scientific research into issues pertaining to mustang taming and adoption.

Elements of our program:

  1. Training
  2. Adoption
  3. Education
  4. Research
  5. Fund-raising

For each of these there is special kinds of cost.
