The Extreme Mustang Makeover Kentucky slated for June 25-27 will now be held as a virtual event.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation made the difficult decision to move from an in-person to virtual event in order to ensure the health and safety of trainers, owners and fans, and remain in compliance with COVID-19 reopening plans determined by the state of Kentucky.
The mustangs that compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover for adults are wild mares and geldings 3-6 years old that have been living in Bureau of Land Management (BLM) off-range corrals. Youth trainers will work with yearling and 2-year-old fillies and colts for the competition.
At the competition, the adult horse-and-rider duos compete in a handling and conditioning class, a pattern class and a trail class for nearly $20,000 in cash and prizes. The Top 10 adult competitors then compete in a Freestyle Finals performance, and all youth perform a freestyle as well.
Following the competition, all adult horses will be available to the public through a virtual auction. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own a talented mustang!
Additional information on accessing show patterns; how and when to submit class videos; and how to enter the virtual auction; and how to experience this event will be released next week.
