Extreme Mustang Makeover Scheduled for Fort Worth, Texas



As a follow up to the exciting 2013 Mustang Million event, the Mustang Heritage Foundation and the Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Program are returning to Fort Worth to host the Extreme Mustang Makeover, September 18-20, 2014, at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center. As a special addition, those attending will have the opportunity to adopt trained as well as untrained Mustangs throughout the event.

Youth and adult trainers picked up Mustang geldings at the end of May and will spend the summer preparing their horse for the event. These horses, which were virtually untouched by humans, represent dozens of wild horse herds located all over the West. The goal of this program is to show all a mustang can accomplish, and to help unwanted mustangs find forever homes!

Mustang and adult rider teams will compete in preliminary classes, including: handling and conditioning, a pattern class, and a trail course with in-hand and riding obstacles. The top 10 horse and trainer pairs will advance to the freestyle finals Saturday evening, in which they have the chance to show off their skills and creativity with music, costumes, and props. The freestyle finals are a thrilling conclusion that showcases the Mustangs' trainability, athleticism, and grace. Trainers will compete for about $50,000 in prize money.

Born in the wilds of White Mountain, Wyoming, Breyer portrait model Lindsay's Faith was gathered by the Bureau of Land Management shortly before she turned six. This bay roan mare with a unique silver mane was adopted by Mary Miller Jordan in 2011 and participated in the Mustang Heritage Foundation's inaugural Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover. After this 100-day period, the teams face off in an exciting competition. She made it all the way to the finals of the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover!

If you are interested in attending 2014's events, all preliminary classes are free to attend. Admission to the youth freestyle class is $10. Tickets to the adult Top 10 Freestyle Finals Saturday evening are $15 for general admission while box seats are priced at $25. Visit www.extrememustangmakeover.com for tickets and event details.
