“Through adoption of a wild horse or burro, Nevadans have the opportunity to experience and become a part of our Western legacy. These amazing animals can be trained to work stock, to ride trails in the backcountry, and even to serve our communities as police horses,” Reid said. “Activities on September 26th will include not only adoptions, but also educational events and wild horse expositions. In fact, more than 65 events will take place across the country. I urge all Nevadans who are interested to take part in one of these events on this exciting day.”
A similar resolution was passed on Tuesday by the U.S. House of Representatives at the request of Congresswoman Dina Titus. For more information, and to find a planned adoption event near you, visit the National Wild Horse Adoption Day website at www.nationalwildhorseadoptionday.org.
