SPIRIT OF THE ANCIENTS SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
The International Society for the Protection of Mustangs an Burros (ISPMB), the oldest wild horse and burro organization in the United States, manages rare and endangered wild horses for future generations to enjoy.
How can you keep them running free-
Committed to saving the last of America’s wild horses, ISPMB has created a sponsorship program whereby individuals or corporations can take pride in assisting with ISPMB’s conservation goals.
Sponsorship of a wild horse or a wild band keeps these wild horses running free and allows for other endangered herds to be preserved.
Creating a model for wild horse management-
ISPMB has been innovative in the field of wild horse and burro protection and was responsible for the passage of federal legislation to protect wild horses and burros in 1971 under the leadership of our 1st president, Velma Johnston. ISPMB led the way in creating the first ever wild horse adoption program in 1968, which led to the creation of the federal Adopt-A-Horse/Burro program operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). In 1971 there were 303 wild herds recognized in ten western states and to be protected under the Act. Today, more than 100 herds have been eliminated by the BLM leading to ISPMB’s decision to begin rescuing entire herds. Constant monitoring of social structures and herd dynamics of ISPMB’s horses continues to give the organization valuable information that will produce an ideal management philosophy based on its intense on the ground observations of wild horse behaviors.
