Receive $500 when you adopt an adult wild horse from BLM. The offer is designed to help defray the initial cost of keeping a horse. Payment is made after one year when you receive title to the animal.
This adoption incentive is being offered on a trial basis in the BLM-New Mexico region only (which also includes Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas). The idea behind the incentive is to increase the number of mature horses (4-10 years old) placed into private ownership through adoption.
