Adopting a Wild Horse


Wild horses removed from the Augusta Herd Management Area will be offered for adoption to qualified people through the BLM’s Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro Program. 

During the first year, the government retains title to the animal(s), and will conduct compliance checks throughout the year in an effort to ensure that the animal is properly being cared for and has gone to a good home.  At the end of the first year, if the adopter has complied with all the adoption stipulations and has properly cared for their mustang for one year, he or she is eligible to receive title, or ownership, from the Federal government.
