Inmate-Trained Horses and Burros in Arizona

New video about the wild horse and burro training program at the state prison in Florence, AZ, which is sponsored by Arizona Correctional Industries, Bureau of Land Management and the Arizona Department of Corrections.

Inmates are taught how to care for the animals and prepare them for adoption, a process known as ‘gentling.’

Programs like this one have been proven to reduce recidivism, a positive result for the inmates and taxpayers.

The Florence Off-Range Corrals, destination for wild horses and burros removed from public lands in the state, are also on prison grounds.
