It sure is a great idea by the BLM...thats been the problem with them for forever..people are scared to start them themselves because of the 'wildness'.
I agree something is much better then nothing and I also think it is a great idea that the BLM is doing something to make these horses marketable.
Thing is in the end. A trainer puts several hours a day 5-6 or maybe 7 days a week for 90 days then figure in the feed farrier vet an all and really in the end how much are they coming home with? Then what if they can not place the horse after 90 days then what? What if it is not ready by the 90 days. I am sure there are certain things that are in the contract that might cover these things but it would be something to think about.
