IDAHO WILD HORSE & BURRO HERD MANAGEMENT AREAS (IF you have a horse or burro from one of these areas, and would like to share, please send me a photo - be sure to include your name and the HMA name - Thanks!)
Idaho has 6 wild horse herd areas:
Name of HMA
The adopter says, "This is a Hardtrigger mustang we adopted when she was 3 months old and now is five.
We rope and barrel race, game, mountain ride. She is an extraordinary animal! We just adopted five more from Saylor Creek."
Destino from Sands Basin in the Ohyhee Mtns of Idaho
Here's my Sands Basin 2 yr old gelding. He was the last yearling colt left after the adoptions. He is solid chestnut color. I plan to show him in Dressage and have my kids ride him as a Hunter Jumper. He should come in at 15.2h.
He is the smartest horse I've ever worked, and my best friend. The other day I set up a jump shute. He jumped the 4 foot guide instead of the small jump - because it looked like more fun??? He also loves to watch other horses work. He wants to do the work. I like his type. I think it is the true mustang look. Long stride huge up hill build solid bone and great feet. He floats at all 4 gaits!
I want to do more to help people train young mustangs. warm Regards, Annie McKillop
* Due to their proximity to one another, these HMA's are being managed as a single Complex.
These are a few photos I took while leading small groups of friends to see the Wild Horses near Jump Creek the last three weeks. We backed off when we saw the new foal. I love the beauty of the Owyhees. - Dennis Ferree Outback Adventures
