Becoming a Mentor

Importance of Mentors
With the decline of natural predators, wild horses and burros are multiplying in greater numbers than their environment can support. As a result, the BLM removes excess animals and adopts them out to individuals with appropriate facilities. The Wild Horse Mentors proactively help these animals by providing educational materials, workshops and one-on-one assistance to wild horse ad burro adopters so that the animals may become successfully adjusted to domestic life and and live healthy and contented lives.
