CASPER, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management of Wyoming will be holding a wild horse and burro adoption event at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 30 amid Cheyenne Frontier Days at Lions Park on South Lions Park Drive in Cheyenne.

The BLM is planning to offer about 15 halter- or saddle-started horses and burros for adoption. The horses and burros were trained at the Mantle Adoption and Training Facility in Wheatland.

Demonstrations are being held daily from 10:30 a.m. to noon and from 4 to 5:30 p.m. ahead of the adoption event. People interested in adopting the horses and burros must complete an application at least 30 minutes ahead of Saturday’s adoption event, according to the BLM. More information about the adoption process is available from the BLM’s website.
