CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The BLM and the Nevada Department of Corrections are inviting horse enthusiasts to a special wild horse adoption event at the Western States Wild Horse and Burro Expo in Gardnerville August 1 and August 2 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Inmates from the Northern Nevada Correctional Center’s Saddle Horse Training program will showcase training efforts during a competition that spans the weekend, concluding with an awards ceremony and adoption of the animals.

Ten saddle-trained horses and one burro from the ranges of Nevada, California and Utah will be available starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, and all are looking for good homes, according to a press release from BLM spokesperson Lisa Ross. The horses and burro are saddle-trained, vary in weight and color and range in age from three to six-years-old. The beginning bid on all animals is $150.
