Event Description

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management will sponsor a wild horse adoption during Cheyenne Frontier Days on the south side of S. Lions Park Drive in Lions Park. 

This year, the BLM will offer approximately 16 halter- or saddle-started wild horses and two halter- pack-started burros for adoption. Approved bidders may participate in the adoption auction, in-person, on Saturday, July 27, at 2 p.m. All horses and burros up for adoption were trained at the Mantle Adoption and Training Facility in Wheatland, Wyo. 

Interested adopters will have plenty of time to get to know the horses because trainers from the Mantle Ranch will be holding daily demonstrations from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. every day July 19-26. Come learn about some of the techniques used by the Mantle family to gentle and train wild horses and burros. 

Additional information about the Mantle Adoption and Training Facility can be found on BLM’s website at

A photo album of the horses and burros can be seen at CFD Album 2024.
