Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Environmental factors are straining public lands to the limit in its ability to sustain wildlife and the livestock that have called the range home for generations. Mustangs are at risk along with other wildlife, because of the impact horse herds have on the range they are have been targeted for governmental regulation. To date gathering horses off the range and adopting to the public has been the prime tool used to control mustang populations. This was somewhat adequate in the past, but now the number of horses being removed from the range far out paces the number of adoptive homes available. New management strategies are needed that include all parties who have an interest in caring for our public lands.

Education, Herd Management, and Mustang Adoption

We are striving to educate the public about the environmental impact, herd management, and adoption struggles that face the American Mustang in the modern world. It is our desire our educational efforts will lead to more ethical, effective and sustainable management strategies for mustangs as part of the nation's historical heritage. We seek to assist the governmental agencies charged with oversight of mustang herds to diversify population control procedures to include more than just public adoptions. We also aim to include other parties interested in the welfare of public lands to come to mutually beneficial solutions for mustang management.

Population(s) Served

JMHA has a longstanding record of gentling wild horses for adoption. Training horses and preparing owners to have realistic expectations of adopting a mustang make for more successful long-term homes for the horses gathered. We do our best to pair mustangs with the right adopters to create lasting horse/human partnerships. A team of dedicated trainers have joined us to provide foundational training for wild horses prior to adoption, rehabilitation for mustangs that need to be re-homed, and providing training advice or assistance to mustang owners.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

JMHA is striving to educate the general public on the threats that face wild horses. Our goal is to use educational tools to bring people together to find equitable solutions to land management issues in a way that will be beneficial, not only to the mustang herds, but to all who use our public lands. Until gathering and public adoptions can be replaced by more sustainable and humane population regulation, We will continue to support adoption by providing training resources for mustang adopters.

We are bringing people together to brainstorm best practices for land management. Differing perspectives from many agencies and individuals is the key to finding a path that protects the mustangs in the wild. JMHA has also attracted experienced, like-minded trainers to provide foundational training for mustangs, as well as continuing training support for adopters so that they enjoy lasting ownership of their adopted mustang.

JMHA has found excellent long term homes for nearly 100 New Mexico mustangs. We have maintained a beneficial relationship with the Forest Service that has allowed us to open discussions between many agencies to the benefit of mustangs in the wild. We are in the process of researching the land's capability for supporting livestock, wildlife and mustangs. It is our hope that this research will reveal means for expanding the land's capabilities.
