Extreme makeover, horse edition

5 04 2007

Trainers from across America are invited to participate in the “Extreme Mustang Makeover”. Trainers will pick up the Mustangs at either the Fallon Facility in Nevada or the Paul’s Valley facility near Oklahoma City. They will have the Mustangs in training until Saturday, September 22, 2007. On that date trainers will compete with their Mustang for $25,000 in prize money at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The trained Mustangs will be judged on conditioning, groundwork and a “Horse Course” which represents maneuvers and obstacles found in trail and recreational riding situations.All mustangs participating in the Makeover event will be available for adoption to the public on Sunday, September 23rd.

I dunno about this…but the mustangs will be worked with all summer, so it shouldn’t be a high-pressure situation. Anyone out there thinking of giving this a whirl?

how neat! I might have to check this out. Right now the BLM is adopting horses out in Claremore OK. I wish I could go, I wish even more I could adopt a Mustang…..they are wonderful equines.

Yes, I did think of you when I saw that. 🙂 When I first read it I was afraid it’d be like what Monty Roberts did with Shy Boy, but now I see that the horses will be adopted in April or May and worked with for a few months.

this definitely isn’t up my alley but I know a couple of cowboys who could do a great job with this. They’d like nothing better that to start off with one that’s wild. Much better than one wrecked by a human.

I have a friend participating and she is being careful not to rush or push her horse.. but the horse she has is fantastic! He’s HUGE,! He’s also confident without being pushy, and VERY curious.

There are 100 Mustangs and we all picked them up around June 6th to 9th.
They are all gelding 3 to 4 year olds.
I got my horse on the 6th he is 3 years old his name is Otter B Good .
He loves the water and likes to play with toys.
