MUSTANGS TO THE EXTREME X10

FROM WILD TO MILD

With approximately 100 days to transform wild to mild, trainers from across America continue to take the challenge of competing with an American Mustang at Extreme Mustang Makeover events in 10 U.S. cities. Trainers compete for cash and prizes while displaying the trainability of American Mustangs, in hope of finding a suitable adopter for the horse. The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the Extreme Mustang Makeover event to recognize and highlight the value of Mustangs through a national training competition, showcasing the beauty, versatility, and trainability of these rugged horses.  After being selected, a trainer picks up an American Mustang that has been virtually untouched by humans, and has approximately 100 days to gentle, halter break, saddle train, build trust, develop a relationship with the horse . Help the Mustang Heritage Foundation celebrate 10 years of the Extreme Mustang Makeovers where it all began, Fort Worth, Texas, September 15-17 at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center.  In the past 10 years, and with over 4000 competitors, only 78 trainers have gotten to claim the title of Extreme Mustang Makeover Champion. The best prize is the fact that 5,238 mustangs have been adopted at Extreme Mustang Makeover events. Visit extrememustangmakeover.com
