ADULT DIVISION

The Extreme Mustang Makeover event featured mustangs, ages 3-6 years old, that have had little to no human contact. Approved trainers were paired with a mustang and had approximately 100 days to gentle and trainer their mustangs and compete in a series of classes including handling & conditioning, pattern and a trail class. The Top 10 competitors competed in a freestyle finals performance Saturday night. At the conclusion of the event all adult horses were made available to the public for purchase via public competitive bid.

Selected youth trainers were assigned a 18-24 month old mustang that they trained 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 competed for cash and prizes. Mustangs were adopted by their families prior to the competition.
