A New Mexico Non-Profit - Training Wild Horses for Adoption
- Minimize captive horse suffering
- Train people to train wild horses
- Get wild horses adopted
Without natural predators, wild horses can over-populate their ranges. Land managers round them up, but then what?
We have a plan.
Deep within Largo Canyon in the back country of northern New Mexico, we are giving the mustangs a positive appraisal of humans as we help them out of crowded holding pens and guiding them on their journey towards adoption. Mustang Camp has been providing a positive solution for these animals since 2009 by gentling and training wild horses in conjunction with the federal government – and finding them acceptable adoptable homes. Our positive reinforcement training methods take horse taming out of the realm of a dying cowboy art and putting it squarely into 21st century training technology.
