The Delta Wild Horse Corrals serve as a secondary preparation center for wild horses and burros gathered in Utah. It is also used as an overflow holding facility for wild horses and burros from the National Wild Horse and Burro Center at Palomino Valley. Located in Delta Utah, the Delta Wild Horse Corrals offer a centrally located facility for transporting horses to the eastern United States. The facility was built in 1976 as the primary holding facility for wild horses and burros gathered in Utah and as an overnight stop for animals being shipped to the facilities in the east. With the completion of the Salt Lake Regional Wild Horse and Burro Center, the Delta Facility was used to hold horses and burros gathered in Southern Utah as space became limited at the Salt Lake Horse Center. In 2002, The BLM purchased 4 adjoining acres to the Delta Facility and in 2003 expanded its holding capacity from 100 to 300 head with the addition of the new corrals.
