Working with the Olympic mustangs
LRTC is one of a few "full spectrum" wild horse advocacy groups that has undertaken a variety of missions including general advocacy, educating the public, working with agencies to protect free-roaming horses and burros and their environments, facilitating adoptions, mentoring new adopters, responding to horse emergencies, conducting range rescues, rehabilitating injured and orphaned horses and more. There are many different functional areas that interested people can participate in and/or support.

  • Provide Emergency Transportation

Important notes:

The term "Mentor" refers to an individual who has qualified as a wild horse mentor and who will assist adopters of wild horses and burros when needed.

For safety reasons, some hands-on activities involving ungentled animals require prior experience or participation in LRTC or state recognized training programs to qualify.

Different BLM districts have different levels of involvement with volunteers as do other agencies that manage free-roaming horses and burros.

Some projects and programs are regionally oriented, or in the case of programs such as the Wild Horse Workshop, they may move about the country.

LRTC is a non-profit (charitable) corporation and its activities are bound by the rules of the IRS and states in which it operates.
