    Green enough to have not been haltered before and never been trailered for the most part.

    That is why they have very strict requirements on the type of trailer you have to bring.

    Here is the page with all the rules:

    How to Adopt

    My family did this program for years with the Oregon herd.

    Coming from one of the training programs, it would really depend on the individual horse and trainer it came from. You would just have to look around and visit some of the horses that are under the care of a trainer and see which one would likely work best for you. I would imagine that they can stop, w/t/c, turn, and back up on a pretty consistent basis. Past that, I couldn't venture a guess.

    The ones we adopted from straight from the herds were really green. Sometimes it'd take a long time to get them into the stock trailer. You've got to have a lot of patience for most of them.

    Oh, yeah. If I was a first time owner, I sure wouldn't look to get one wild. That's how I ended up with my 2 is people adopted them because "Ooh, they're so majestic and I bet we will bond and have a majickal luv". It was only after they had the horse delivered that they realized, Oh, crap, these things are actually WILD and ended up scared of them.

    We got some that I thought there was no way we were going to be able to train. They would try to crawl right out out of the paneled corral. It was crazy.

    And no, adopting one from straight from the herd would not be recommended for a first time owner.
