Extreme Mustang Makeover

Here is some information of the purpose and objective of the Extreme Mustang Makeover competition.

The Mustang Heritage Foundation, in cooperation with the BLM, created the Extreme Mustang Makeover event in order to recognize and highlight the value of Mustangs through a national training competition. This event gives the public a unique opportunity to see the results of wild horses becoming trained mounts. The purpose of the Extreme Mustang Makeover is to showcase the beauty, versatility and trainability of the rugged horses that roam freely on public lands throughout the West, where they are protected by the BLM under Federal law.

At the conclusion of the Extreme Mustang Makeover the participating Mustangs are available for adoption by competitive bid. Through these events the foundation offers the public a special opportunity to adopt a true Living Legend.

As a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, The Mustang Heritage Foundation is committed to increasing the awareness and adoption of American Mustangs.

By demonstrating the ability of a Mustang to be an athlete and nurturing companion, the Foundation is successfully helping the Bureau of Land Management reposition some of the nearly 30,000 wild horses available for adoption.”

The Youth Mustang Makeover has the same objective except instead of training horses under saddle, we dedicate the entire time to a yearling with ground work and preparing them for under saddle training. Often when a horse has a very successful foundation on the ground, it transfers to a successful and easy transfer to the back of the horse when they’re ready.
