RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Bureau of Land Management is planning an adoption event in Riverton for wild horses and burros.

The Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/1SYGLTO) that Wyoming Honor Farm will host the first of two adoption events this year on May 21. The BLM and the Honor Farm have partnered since 1988 to train and adopt wild horses.

About 30 halter and saddle-started horses and three burros will be available for adoption. Interested adopters can see the animals on May 20 before the event.

A covered four-horse trailer with a swing gate is required to adopt a horse or burro.

The Wyoming Honor Farm, located about one mile north of Riverton, is a program that allows Wyoming Department of Corrections inmates to work with animals, including gentling wild horses.
