Since 2005, the Community has accepted applications from parties interested in adopting horses selected from the wild horse population. Prior to adoption, all available colts are examined and vaccinated by a veterinarian. Those interested in adopting and caring for up to four horses may submit an application for adoption. Should the application be approved, ownership of the horse(s) is conditional for one year during which time site visits are conducted by the program to ensure that proper care is being given to the horse(s). After completing the conditional ownership period, and upon approval of the RMP, the adopter receives a certificate of ownership of the mustang(s).
