2020 Horses available beginning Dec. 1 in virtual placement events

Please be patient...

This year’s gather of Devil’s Garden Wild Horses is now complete. With the widest variety of color and size so far, the newly gathered horses promise to delight. Adopters and purchasers will not be able to go to the corrals in person to select horses for the time being. However, a virtual adoption event schedule will help the 2020 DG kiddos find their new families and happy homes.  

Time is needed to make sure all horses are healthy, get vaccinations, anti-worming medicine and identification microchips implanted. All stallions will be gelded. Time for horses to settle and adjust to a new routine is also essential. Please be patient

Placement of horses gathered in 2020 will begin with live virtual placement events for specific groups of horses on December 1, 2020.

These groups and dates are:

  • Group 1: Tuesday Dec 1 Mares 1-4
  • Group 2: Thursday Dec 3 Mares 5-9
  • Group 3: Tuesday Dec 8 Geldings 1-4
  • Group 4: Thursday Dec 10 Geldings 5-9

To get ready to adopt or purchase 2020 Devil's Garden Horses, folks will need an approved application on file with the Double Devil Wild Horse Corrals manager. Only those with approved applications will be on the Participants Lists for the virtual events. Qualified adopters must meet standard requirements listed on the application form found below.

Approved applicants will be placed on the Participants List and ready for participation in online adoption events. Some horses can be viewed now on Double Devil Wild Horse Corrals Facebook page and on the forest website. Photos of new horses are posted regularly. Please be patient

All horses will be available individually by tag number within a pre-determined group and on a certain date for placement with the person who claims the horse first during the event. Watch out for more information soon about event rules and how to participate.

Forest personnel cannot guarantee the pickup of horses the same day selections are made. Those wanting to pick up horses the same day as selection should complete their selections by 12 p.m. to give corral personnel enough time for possible loading by late afternoon.
