In 1971, the United States Congress recognized Mustangs as “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.” Today, the Mustang Heritage Foundation in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management works to increase the number of successful adoptions of America’s excess Mustangs that have been taken off public lands due to overpopulation and to raise awareness of the horses’ place as a national treasure as well as their trainability and usability in modern equine competitions.
Founded in 2001, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) public, charitable, nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating successful adoptions for America’s excess Mustangs and burros. The Foundation relies on government grants and public support to operate its various programs designed to help Mustangs find adoptive homes. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible. Whether your Mustang interest is in adopting, training or simply helping these incredible horses, your donation to the Mustang Heritage Foundation benefits these great American equine legends by helping to find adoptive homes and raise awareness!
As of 2010, the BLM estimated that more than 38,000 wild horses and burros were roaming on BLM-managed rangelands in 10 Western states. Wild horse herd sizes can double about every four years. As a result, the agency must remove thousands of animals from the range each year to control population. Since 2007, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has placed more than 2,000 Mustangs in adoptive homes.
