A unique partnership between the BLM and 4H Idaho provides another avenue for wild horses to find new homes, while easing the burden for the BLM with their wild horse management program.

The 4H youth performed in a trail challenge after working with wild horses for a short amount of time. The goal for these kids is to train a wild horse for adoption, which will happen at the Idaho Horse Expo on April 12th.

Through this program, more than 300 wild horses have been adopted. The BLM receives $25 per horse, and the rest goes to the 4H clubs in Idaho.
