MHF Storefront Logo

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 nearby 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 holding facility. Trainers, for a list of available horses, along with photographs, visit the Canon City Mustangs Facebook page or contact us for more information on available horses and logistics for the pickup. 

To learn more about the Trainer Incentive Program, how to become an approved trainer and other opportunities, visit the Mustang Heritage Foundation.
