TAKE IT TO THE EXTREME IN TEXAS. TICKETS ON SALE NOW.
Extreme Mustang Makeover at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo – January 23-25, at the Will Rogers Coliseum. Trainers will have approximately 120 days to gentle a wild horse and compete for the top prize of $50,000.
The purpose of the competition is to showcase the beauty, versatility and trainability of wild horses. The EMM program, created and produced by the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse & Burro Program, involves a 120-day competition that challenges trainers to gentle and saddle train wild mustangs to ready them for competition.
The mustangs competing in the Extreme Mustang Makeover are virtually untouched by humans prior to the September trainer pick-up. The trainers and mustangs compete in a series of classes that will showcase their new skills. The classes the horse-and-rider duos will participate in are handling & conditioning, mustang maneuvers – a pattern class, and a trail class. The Top 10 competitors then compete for the $50,000 Championship in the freestyle finals Saturday night. Youth trainers will work with yearling and 2-year-old fillies and colts for the competition.
The mustangs competing in the Extreme Mustang Makeoverwill be available to the public through an auction event on Saturday, January 25. Purchase fees will be set by competitive bid. To qualify, individuals must be at least 18 with no record of animal abuse. In addition, purchasersmust have suitable facilities and can acquire no more than four animals. Purchase applications will be approved on site by the Mustang Heritage Foundation during the event.
