The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the Trainer Incentive Program, better known as TIP, to bridge the gap between potential adopters/purchasers and American Mustangs housed at Bureau of Land Management (BLM) off-range facilities. The MHF is looking for talented trainers who employ natural horsemanship techniques to gentle American Mustangs. The MHF is also looking to match qualified adopters/purchasers with approved TIP trainers.

Mustangs are considered gentle when they are halter broke, will pick up all four feet, and will load and unload from a trailer.

The Mustang Heritage Storefront, developed by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, is meant to target trainers/facilities with a proven track record and the facilities necessary to hold and care for at least 10 wild horses or burros at one time.

The Storefront program is operated by the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF), in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program. The Storefront Program is part of the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) and is available to individuals/organizations who have successfully been approved by MHF as a TIP Trainer, and have been approved by the BLM to house 10 or more wild horses or burros at any given time. Through this program there are two options. One is gentling the animals and finding an adopter/purchaser or serving as a pick-up location for other approved TIP
trainers, adopters or purchases.

Thank you for your interest, however, we are not currently approving additional TIP Storefront locations at this time.




The mission of the MHF is to increase the adoption of BLM-housed American Mustangs and burros through innovative gentling (training) competitions and awareness programs. In keeping with this mission, the TIP Challenge has been created to place mustangs and burros in adoptive homes. These challenges involve youth (8-17 years of age) and adults (ages 18 and up) in the adoption and training of Mustangs and burros. Participants help promote the adoption of these national treasures by showcasing the animal’s value and trainability.
