Horse Program
The Northern Nevada Correctional Center/Stewart Conservation Camp Saddle Horse Training Program is a cooperative partnership between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC). The program gentles and trains wild horses for adoption. About 40 to 70 wild horses are trained and adopted at the facility each year.

Horse Adoption Ceremony

Adoptions are held three times per year at the facility in October, February, and late May or early June. An adoption is also generally held in conjunction with the Western States Wild Horse and Burro Expo at the Reno Livestock Events Center each August.

The next scheduled auction is February 25, 2017. Click for Catalog!

Catalogs with photographs of the animals and their descriptions are posted on BLM's web site about one month prior to the scheduled adoption.
