LRTC Wild Horse Mentors'
Index to Historic Features

One of our most important missions involves producing in depth hands-on workhops for mentors and adopters where, under qualified guidance, they can actually work with and learn about wild horses.

The links listed below will take you to features about each program, complete with lots of photographic images.

Wild Horse Workshops

The Wild Horse Workshops are annual week-long events where participants can work with and adopt BLM wild horses and burros.

Wild Horse Workshop '98

WHW '98, in Antioch, CA, was the first attempt anywhere of a workshop in partnership with BLM where participants could work hands-on with unadopted BLM horses practicing low resistance approaches.

Wild Horse Workshop '99

WHW '99 was held in Fletcher, NC. We added clicker training and the "human round pen" to the format.

Wild Horse Workshop '00

WHW 2000 was held in Golden, Colorado. Participants were getting into the pens pretty early with the wild ones, we were refining our approaches and developing clinician assistants from some of the more experienced participants.

Wild Horse Workshop '01

WHW '01 in Corvallis, OR, was a landmark event. We got 72 participants in the pens on the first day. Our clinician assistants were taking on more responsibility. We added "horse poker."

Wild Horse Workshop '02

WHW '02 was held in Lawrence, KS. Several of the clinicians had started out as participants in earlier programs. This was the smoothest running workshop to date.

Wild Horse Workshop '03

WHW '03 was held in Tooele, UT (near Salt Lake City.) We had a great crew of clinicians and assistants and Tooele was our best program to date. Participants also toured nearby wild horse HMAs along with the incredible Butterfield Holding Facility.

Wild Horse Workshop '04

WHW '04 was held in Brentwood, CA (near Stockton). We had our regular great crew of clinicians and assistants rostered for this event and BLM brought in some wonderful Northern California wild horses. (Please not that the album for this event is being reformatted and will be back on-line shortly.)
