How to help
Mustang Heritage Foundation helps find forever homes for thousands of these horses and burros each year. With your tax-deductible donation, we can help even more! Not everyone can buy a horse, but you can help one find a forever home.
Your generous support can help us do more. By donating to the Mustang Heritage Foundation, you’ll help expand programs and events that are crucial to increasing the adoption and placement of wild horses and burros into private care. With a surplus of horses under the Bureau of Land Management care, Mustang Heritage Foundation’s work of placing horses into private care is becoming ever more critical to free up space for the BLM to save more horses and burros. Will you join us in our fight to save the American horse?
Every gift saves a horse. Please consider a one-time gift if you are not able to make a monthly commitment.
HISTORY OF MUSTANG HERITAGE FOUNDATION
Established in 2001, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit with a mission to help wild horses and burros. Our goal is to decrease the number of wild horses and burros in BLM holding facilities by increasing the number of successful adoptions and placements into private care.
Since its inception, MHF has placed more than 20,000 mustangs and burros into private care. On average, this has helped save the U.S. taxpayer more than $162 million each year.
Beginning in 2006, MHF and the Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse & Burro Program have been effectively partnered to increase adoptions of mustangs and burros. The Mustang Heritage Foundation supports the BLM through marketing and placement programs to increase the number of horses placed in homes and private care from federal lands.
The first Extreme Mustang Makeover was held in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2007. The first-of-its-kind event featured 100 trainers who had each spent 100 days training a wild horse. The event was highly successful and soon became the talk of the horse industry. Extreme Mustang Makeover events are held across the country each year and thousands of equine enthusiasts have witnessed the trainability and versatility of the American mustang.
The Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) was created in 2007 to engage talented horse trainers across the country to help gentle, train, and find homes for wild horses and burros. Today with TIP Trainers in 40 states, more wild horses and burros are finding loving homes than ever before!
