Mission Statement

Our purpose is to educate the general public about the many issues surrounding the wild-born horse, as well as to aid in the implementation of programs which reinforce the need for preservation, protection, and management, while promoting a more positive image of the wild-born horse.

Description

IWHBA provides support and mentoring to those persons who have or plan to adopt wild-born horses from the Bureau of Land Management or any other agency or organization that makes wild-born horses available to the general public. This support and mentoring is available through the implementation of training and mentoring programs that educate adopters and future adopters in learning the skills and methods of gentling and handling wild-born horses using natural horsemanship techniques. These programs are offered for the development of positive relationship between horse and human leading to the long-term success of wild-born adoption programs. In a nutshell, we provide help and assistance to people who have adopted or will adopt a wild horse or burro through the BLM. Wild horses and burros are wonderful animals and can be a great addition to your family. However, new adopters are often overwhelmed at the prospect of training and caring for a newly adopted wild horse or burro. That's where we can help. Adopters may call one of our member advisors to answer questions and ask for advice. Our member list will be available through the BLM or you can contact a board member to be put in touch with someone whose abilities match your needs.
