Join our WARHorses Discussion Board with Equestrian’s Anonymous

This week was the 92nd Chincoteague/Assateague Island pony swim and auction. The annual auction controls the pony population and raises funds to operate the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company. This year 55 ponies sold at an average price of $3400.

Could a successful program like this be applied (sans the swimming part) to help America’s Mustangs or Australia’s Brumbie populations? Rather than offer cheap horses for sale (BLM sales average $125 per horse) add the aspect of fund raising for charity as added incentive to rehome a wild horse. Would this premise present more opportunities for other wild horse populations to be saved from the holding pens or hunting?
