BLM offers an opportunity to purchase wild horse or burro during Cheyenne Frontier Days

The Bureau of Land Management has announced they will sponsor a wild horse and burro adoption during Cheyenne Frontier Days on the south side of S. Lions Park Drive in Lions Park.

This year, the BLM reported they will offer approximately 15 halter- or saddle-started wild horses and burros for adoption. Approved bidders may participate in the adoption auction at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 30. All horses and burros up for adoption were trained at the Mantle Adoption and Training Facility in Wheatland, Wyo.

Interested adopters will have an opportunity to get to know the horses and burros as trainers from the Mantle Ranch will be holding daily demonstrations from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. every day, starting on July 22. Interested buyers can use this opportunity to learn about some of the techniques used by the Mantle family to gentle and train wild horses and burros.
