Saddle-Trained Wild Horses Available for Adoption from the BLM on March 25th

The Bureau of Land Management, in coordination with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, is offering one halter-trained and up to eight saddle-trained wild horses for adoption. The virtual competitive-bid event will start at 6:00p.m. via Zoom on Thursday, March 25th.

The BLM gathered the wild horses from overpopulated herds on western ranges as part of its mission to manage healthy horses on healthy public lands. The horses were trained by inmates in the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center wild horse training program in Elk Grove.

The training program, established in 2013, provides adopters with horses that have a sound start in their training, while providing inmates valuable professional and life skills.

“Adopters have had great success with horses from this training program,” said Amy Dumas, manager of the BLM-California Wild Horse and Burro Program. “We look forward to placing these animals in loving homes.”

Anyone interested can view horses and information about each animal and learn about the training program at

Adopters must meet BLM’s qualifications and facility requirements. Details can be found at Horses must be picked up from the R3C training facility in Elk Grove on April 10th.

More information is available from Dumas at 916-978-4678.
