The Extreme Mustang Makeover event features mustangs, ages 3-6 years old, that have had little to no human contact. Approved trainers were paired with a mustang and now have approximately 100 days to gentle and train their mustangs and compete in a series of classes including handling & conditioning, pattern and a trail class. The Top 10 competitors will then compete in a freestyle finals performance that Saturday night. At the conclusion of the event all adult horses will be made available to the public for purchase via public competitive bid.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation youth competition offers the opportunity for youth ages 8-17 to compete in the Extreme Mustang at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion. Selected youth trainers were assigned to a 18-24 month old mustang that they will train for competition. Goals of the training included halter breaking, trailer loading, picking up feet and leading though obstacles and maneuvers. At the end of the training period, youth and mustangs will compete for cash and prizes. Mustangs are adopted by their families prior to the competition.
