These horses will also be showcased during the Eastern Idaho Fair in Blackfoot on September 6, and available for adoption at the Fair on September 12.
The partnership between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the University of Idaho 4-H Extension program has grown in popularity since its inception in 2009. “It is a great opportunity for a young person to develop solid horsemanship skills, while giving our wild horses a basic handling foundation that enables them to go onto to become good partners for potential adopters,” said Challis Wild Horse Specialist Kevin Lloyd.
Since 2009, over 200 horses have been adopted and $20,000 raised for the 4-H clubs.
