Green River Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center

Every summer, the Green River Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center showcases two mustangs so people can see wild horses up close and personal and to promote the BLM's Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program. Both horses are available on a first come/first served basis. The program is a huge success as every year the horses showcased have been adopted!  


Name the Horses Contest

The Green River Chamber sponsors a "Name the Horses" contest each year giving a gift certificate to the entries with the winning names. This year the two yearling mustangs being showcased for adoption were named, Jessie and Mesa.

Becky Boyse of Green River chose “Jessie” for buckskin filly #9903 and Brian Wimer of Green River renamed white pinto colt #9915 “Mesa.” Boyse and Wimer both received $25 Chamber of Commerce gift certificates for use with merchants throughout Sweetwater County.

Mesa has been adopted by a horse lover in Rock Springs, Wyo., but Jessie is still available.

This is the third year wild horses have been fostered for adoption at the Green River Chamber Visitor Center.
