Public tour of Bruneau off-range corrals offered in June

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) – The BLM in Idaho will offer a public tour of the Bruneau off-range corrals on Thursday, June 8.

Two public tours will be offered — the first will begin at 10 am and the second will begin at 1 pm.

Each tour will last about two hours and can accommodate up to 20 people.

Spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The public can sign up to attend and receive driving directions to the facility by calling BLM at (208) 329-4534.

Please RSVP for one of the two tours by June 5.

Details about the tour:

• Tours start promptly at the scheduled time, so be at the facility a few minutes early or the wagon may leave and we cannot come back to pick you up

• Bring comfortable shoes and clothes. Hats and sunscreen recommended

• Bring your own water

• Cameras and video cameras welcome

• Visitors will not be able to walk around the facility unaccompanied. They must travel with the group in the wagon at all times

The Bruneau off-range corrals are located at 28536 Jacks Creek Road, and are privately owned and operated.

About a 75-minute drive southeast of Boise, the facility provides care for over 1600 wild horses.

The facility encompasses 80 acres containing 39 large holding pens, each pen measuring 70,000 square feet that will safely hold approximately 100 horses.

  1. Wow – two “public tours” in a row – last year & this year. Were there any comments after the one last year?


  2. I am hoping that whoever attends will take lots of photos and put them online somewhere we can all view them. I’m hoping to catch a glimpse of my little guys mom who was sent there. She’s likely solid brown or black, tall and thin build, her number is 4570. (wonder if they still leave their tags on?)
    She came from Litchfield corrals but is from the Red Rock Lakes herd.
    I would love to see a photo of her. Thanks!
