The Mustang Legacy Program
all mustangs have been adopted at this time!
Q: What is the Heroes and Horses Mustang Legacy Program?
Heroes and Horses is working in conjunction with famed horse trainer, West Taylor (of Wild West Mustang Ranch), to bring an interactive and unique opportunity to our horse-loving supporters. Donors have the opportunity to “adopt” a wild mustang (purchased directly from the BLM in February of 2018), and then watch (through a series of videos and pictures) the process of this mustang being trained, prepared and re-purposed to enter our 2018 season with our veterans. These mustangs will be permanently integrated into our herd, and utilized to rehabilitate veterans for years to come.
Q: How does it work?
The donation fee to adopt a mustang is $5,000, with $3,000 going to West Taylor for his training services, and the remaining $2,000 going directly to supporting our mission and the first year of care for your adopted mustang. We encourage both individuals and companies to adopt.
A donor/corporation can expect to receive the following throughout the duration of their year-long adoption:
- Acknowledgement letter upon submission of adoption donation
- The opportunity to name you mustang
- An “adoption package”, which will include:
- Certificate of adoption
- Profile on your mustang
- Access to a fully customized page on the Heroes and Horses website that will be updated with progress reports, videos and pictures of the training process for their particular mustang
- The opportunity to come to Montana and participate in a full-day “meet and greet” with their mustang (all travel expenses are the responsibility of the donor)
Q: How long is an adoption?
All adoptions are for one year, with the opportunity to renew through our traditional Adopt-A-Horse program.
Q: Can more than one person adopt any given mustang?
No, only one donor/corporation per mustang. Once a mustang is adopted, they will be removed from the website.

Disclaimer: Heroes and Horses reserves the right to sell any of our mustangs, at any time, but will offer first right of refusal to the adoptee before making the sale public. It is also important to note that, while we take every measure and precaution to protect the health and wellbeing of all of our horses, we are not always able to control unforeseen circumstances that may result in the injury or death of one of our livestock. Should an injury result in the death of your adopted mustang, you will be notified immediately. If there are other mustangs still available, you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption. We are not able to refund donations.
