Saddle-trained horses up for adoption

The Bureau of Land Management, the Nevada Department of Agriculture and the Nevada Department of Corrections invite horse lovers and the general public to a special horse adoption event in Carson City on Feb. 13.

Saddle-trained horses from the ranges of Nevada will graduate from months of intensive training starting at 10 a.m., and all are looking for good homes and enthusiastic owners.

Eighteen wild horses from BLM-administered public lands will be offered. The horses range in age from 3-6 years, are saddle-trained with 120 days of training, and vary in weight and color. The beginning bid on all horses is $150.

The horses are trained at NNCC by inmates in the Corrections Department program.
