The Wyoming Honor Farm is a minimum-security correctional facility for adult male inmates that is located in Riverton, Wyoming. This facility is operated by the Wyoming Department of Corrections and can house 283 inmates. 

The Honor Farm’s Wild Horse Program is an important part in inmate rehabilitation. It provides an opportunity for inmates to learn how to respect animals and people through day-to-day challenges. 

Over the past century, the Wyoming Honor Farm facility has expanded to fill an important position in the community, and given offenders opportunities to become law-abiding citizens, and successfully return to society.

Through upgrades and physical expansions, WHF has grown into a prison containing four dorms, having a facility capacity that has grown from 30 inmates in the earliest years, to nearly 300 today.

WHF facilities now include a warehouse, as well as programming, vocational, recreational, and educational space. The goal is to reduce recidivism through cognitive and behavioral intervention.

Wild Horse Program

The Wyoming Honor Farm's Wild Horse Program plays an important role in inmate rehabilitation. It provides an opportunity for inmates to learn how to respect animals and people through day-to-day challenges.

Inmates in the Wild Horse Program work together as a team and learn to respect the opinions and goals of others. Inmate trainers work with the wild horses that progress from round pen work to halter work, then into the saddling and rider acceptance process. This ensures that the horses are not saddled or ridden before the necessary groundwork has been completed. 

Clinton Anderson's training series is used as the main horse training system. When an Honor Farm inmate is assigned a job in the Wild Horse Program he begins work on the feed crew, which means his job is to feed the animals. During the day he will spend much of his time helping others work with the horses.

This process gives the inmate an opportunity to observe training techniques as well as become familiar with the animals. When they are ready, the inmate will progress to handling.
