Extreme Mustang Makeover – Idaho
July 25-26, 2014
The Extreme Mustang Makeover is coming to Idaho!
For the first time, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is traveling to Nampa to host an Extreme Mustang Makeover at the Ford Idaho Horse Park! This wild horse training event will offer two divisions. Youth, ages 8-17, will compete with a mustang yearling they adopted in in-hand classes and adults, ages 18 and over, will ride their assigned mustang in preliminary classes to compete for a spot in the top 10 freestyle finals. All adult mustangs will be available for adoption after the event.
