Meet Snickers at the Upcoming Wild Horse Adoption
in Cheyenne, April 29-30


Snickers appears to be an average brown horse, but the freeze brand on his neck claims otherwise. Snickers was born a wild horse.

 

Snickers and his owner Kathi Wilson will be at BLM's Riata Ranch wild horse adoption on April 29-30 in Cheyenne, Wyo. Wilson will use Snickers in demonstrations throughout the day on Friday and Saturday morning. She'll be on hand to answer questions and show off what Snickers can do.

"Snickers is a great horse. What I want people to know is that wild horses can be trained to do anything that other horses can," said Wilson.

Snickers was adopted in 2003 from the Steve Mantle Training Facility. Wilson has ridden him in parades, competed with him in numerous competitions and takes him trail riding all over the country.
