The adoption will offer approximately 50 horses in a variety of colors. All the horses have been haltered, led, trailered and have had their feet handled. Approximately 40 horses have been saddled and/or ridden.

On Friday, Sept. 22, Mike Buchanan, the wild horse supervisor at the Honor Farm, will demonstrate a free clinic on “Connecting the Mind” the Honor Farm’s Level System used to train the horses. The clinic runs from 1-4 p.m. and is open to the public. A preview of the horses will be open after the demonstration with coffee and sodas available in the afternoon.
