Fees Slashed For Adoption Of Kansas Horses
09/11/2012

Some horses being trained by inmates at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility are now available for adoption at the lowest price allowed under Kansas law. An expanded partnership between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the Mustang Heritage Foundation allows the BLM to offer some horses for $125 apiece. Between 14 and 18 minimum security inmates participate in the training program at any given time. The correctional center has areas designed to hold 350 horses in multiple enclosures and pens, all built by inmates using donated materials. The BLM has offered horses for adoption at the Hutchinson facility since 2001, typically for fees $600 to $1,000 apiece. Several untrained horses at the facility also are available for adoption.
