About The Horses
#1776 - Pinãta
1 yr old Pinto Filly, 13.1 hands
HMA: White Mountain
Halter started. Pinata has a great start with the ground work. She likes attention and is easy to catch. She is good with her feet and trailers well. She can be a touch pushy at times, so she needs someone to be assertive with her when needed. She leads well and accepts new things fairly well.
#5243 - Paul
2 yr old Brown Gelding, 14 hands
HMA: B-WYF54 (born in the RS facility)
Halter started. He is very friendly, loves attention and is easy to catch. He is great with his feet and he trailers very well. He also stands tied well. He accepts the saddle being put on him and cinched up, but as of this point Paul has not been rode. Paul is ready and eager for someone to move on with him.
About The Wild Horse Training Program
The Wyoming Honor Farm's Wild Horse Training Program and the BLM, started the co-operative agreement in 1988 and is one of the longest running prison partnerships in the United States.
The program plays an important role in inmate rehabilitation as it provides an opportunity for the men to learn how to respect animals and people through day-to-day challenges. Inmates in the Wild Horse Training Program work together as a team and, they learn to respect the opinions and goals of others. Inmates working with horses learn that through respect, communication, and patience even a wild animal will respond in a positive manner.
The horses progress from round pen work, to halter work, then into the saddling and rider acceptance process. This ensures that the horses are not saddled or ridden before the necessary ground work has been completed. The program uses techniques similar to those used by Ray Hunt, Bryan Neubert, John Lyons and Clinton Anderson which have proven to be very successful.
