SEPTEMBER 6-8, 2018
The EMM Fort Worth, TX event in September 2018 featured an exciting format called Player’s Choice. Eligible adult trainers were allowed to bid on the mustang of their choosing for use in competition from a selection of approximately 300 mares and geldings and compete for their chance to win the top prize of $50,000.
In 2018, the Mustang Heritage Foundation offered the opportunity for youth ages 8-17 to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover in both Lexington, KY and Fort Worth, TX. Selected youth trainers were assigned a 18-24 month old mustang to be trained for competition. Goals of training include halter breaking, trailer loading, picking up feet and leading though obstacles and maneuvers. At the end of the training period, youth and mustangs compete for cash and prizes. Youth trainers and their families adopted their mustang prior to the competition.
MUSTANG OPEN SHOW
The Mustang Open Show, is a show produced and hosted by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, held in conjunction with the Extreme Mustang Makeover. A competition of BLM-branded mustangs, the Mustang Open competition was for adults and youth who want to continue to compete and showcase the abilities of their mustangs. The competition was divided into three divisions including in-hand, walk-trot and walk-trot-lope with each division featuring trail, pattern and freestyle classes.
