BLM Wild Horse & Burro Program Logo  Public Observation Opportunities 

The 2011 fall gathers began on October 10 in the Red Desert Complex 
and are expected to continue through mid-November.

Operations commenced this morning, October 25th, for the Divide Basin HMA Gather.


Thank you for your interest in observing BLM wild horse gather operations in the Red Desert Complex and Divide Basin Herd Management Area (HMA). The BLM is committed to providing as much public access to the gather as possible.

Please be advised that gather operations are fluid and may change at any time. For example, the team may need to move and reconstruct gather sites and holding facilities. Weather conditions are uncertain. Delays of one or more days may be necessary. We encourage you to monitor our website closely for the most up-to-date information. The BLM appreciates your patience.

The gather schedule will move back and forth between Red Desert and Divide Basin. Please be aware of the current location of the gather you’re interested in attending.
