Our training and adoption program is in full swing and we have many beautiful Mustangs available for adoption. Not ready to adopt one yet? Please consider sponsoring one, your donation and support will help us to give them necessary care and training. Thank you for your support and interest in our training and adoption program.
Recommended Adopter Scale:
Use our scale below to help guide your decision in adopting a horse that is appropriate for your experience level. This is a dynamic scale that often changes with training, socialization, and time. Regardless of the scale, please understand that ALL horses have the ability to bite/kick/strike/bolt/buck/etc. Use caution when handling ANY horse and if you find yourself struggling, please seek help from a professional trainer. If you are in need of a referral, we will be happy to pass along contact information of the trainers that we highly recommend.
The Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary (GEMS), the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have partnered together to bring Colorado and nearby areas a convenient pickup location.
We are Colorado’s first Storefront location for the Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) as well as youth trainers, making these programs more convenient and successful here in Colorado and neighboring states.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the TIP Program to bridge the gap between potential adopters and American Mustangs housed at Bureau of Land Management facilities. The Mustang Heritage Foundation is looking for talented trainers who employ natural horsemanship techniques to gentle American Mustangs. Trainers, this is your chance to become a part of the solution!
Our location offers horses from the Canon City, CO holding facility. Trainers, contact us for more information on available horses and logistics for the pickup.
