Jicarilla Mustang Heritage Alliance is dedicated to the welfare of New Mexico's wild horses. Based in Northern New Mexico we have been able to place several mustangs in excellent adoptive homes since JMHA's formation fall of 2012. Our goal is to unite mustangs with the best possible adoptive homes, and to educate the public about the many concerns of wild horse management in our modern world. We hope to create lasting horse/human partnerships that put the mustangs first. In short our mission is to find sanctuary for wild horses One Mustang At A Time. In this continued effort we support teaching people in the use of gentle, more humane, communication and training techniques.
Recently Gathered El Rito Horses!
New Mexico is home to the El Rito herd of mustangs that is well know for producing extremely intelligent horses. With definite pony ancestry they are small, yet very hardy horses with personality that just won't quit. We have taken 4 of these young cuties into training; they are not quite ready for adoption yet, but check out the For Adoption page to see the new additions. Check back regularly because they are all making progress and will be ready for homes soon!
Featured Horse For Adoption
Lilly is a really sweet little mare! Check out her video on the For Adoption page.
JMHA has recently purchased Lily as a "third strike" mustang, which means that we will be able to offer her for sale directly without the Forest Service's mandatory year long probation before receiving ownership papers. We are in the process of figuring out the paperwork and have not yet determined a price for Lily. We want to have her well started under saddle before her sale. If you are interested in Lily please contact JMHA and we will try to answer all of your questions.
Links to Some of JMHA's Proud supporters
I hear peace in your soft voice. Does my innocence attract you?
Offered like a wild flower, your trust touches my heart.
Lets tame one another. Come dance with me!
Born of the wind, proud and spirited, but fearful of your greed,
I ran from you for centuries.
Stop wasting your breath running after me.
Run with me, and filled with gladness, I will follow you to the end of time.
