The Mustang Project
Kids transforming horses while being transformed themselves.
The Mustang Project was created with the following objectives and purposes:
a) to provide a program for youth, especially those deemed to be at-risk, to learn about, interact with, and care for horses,
b) to give participating youth the opportunity to gentle and train wild horses (Mustangs),
c) to use this interaction with horses to increase awareness of and empathy toward animals and people,
d) to foster a sense of accomplishment and self-worth among participants, and to provide an incentive to excel in all areas of their lives,
e) to give them the skills and opportunities to pursue a career working with horses if desired,
f) to hold special events and distribute educational materials to increase public awareness about adopting and training Bureau of Land Management Mustangs,
g) to adopt BLM Mustangs for use in the program.
