"We're not here to show you what we can do.
Least Resistance Training Concepts (LRTC) is a non-profit
corporation founded by Willis and Sharon Lamm of California
for the purpose of researching and sharing humane and effective
techniques for gentling and training horses, mules and donkeys.
While one of LRTC's primary focal points is to improve the quality of life for adopted wild horses and burros by providing practical training information and free mentoring assistance, our intended beneficiaries include all horses, regardless of origin, as well as their owners.
The reason we chose the name "Least Resistance" is that our training development goals are aimed toward a training environment that produces the desired results with a minimum of stress and conflict with the horse. We're not trying to change the nature of the horse, but instead create situations where his natural instincts and responses will be productive and contribute to the learning process.
LRTC is a product of the KBR Horse World training website, the former LIFE Foundation that pioneered wild horse mentoring, the accumulative efforts of numerous volunteers, and volunteer service agreements with public agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM.)
The projects we are involved with include:
We are a "grass roots" organization. Programs and services are offered at no cost whenever possible. Fees that are charged are based on actual costs to put on programs. No person in the organization is paid for his/her work. Office space, most office expenses and housing for recovered animals are donated by the volunteers.
Additional expenses for such items as insurance, materials and supplies, and program costs which are not recovered by user fees are funded in several ways:
While we don't typically canvass and arm twist for donations, all contributions are gratefully received and will be put to good use.
