Don’t miss the Extreme Mustang Makeover event in Fort Worth, Sept. 6-8. Come watch wild mustangs and riders perform amazing feats during freestyle performances, and have a chance to adopt a true living legend as your own. You won’t want to miss a chance to see these amazing animals’ intelligence and beauty!

Created by the Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse & Burro Program, the program involves a 100-day competition that challenges trainers to gently halter break and saddle train wild mustangs to ready them for competition. Through a series of classes and a Top 10 finals competition, trainers display the mustangs’ skills and demeanor as they compete for the top prize of $50,000, followed by a bidding process where spectators can purchase one as their own.

This event will also host a Youth & Mustang competition for youth trainers, ages 8-17, who are eligible to adopt a 12-24 month old mustang to train and showcase their new skills in this in-hand competition.

While you’re there, stop by the America’s Mustang Experience, where you can learn about mustangs and celebrate this symbol of the American spirit in a 40-foot interactive trailer with videos and information about the public lands where they live. The highlight of the experience is a virtual reality station, where you’ll come face-to-face with wild mustangs to see, hear and experience their habits on-range.

In addition, kick-off the fun with us Friday night, Sept. 7 for Player’s Choice Casino Night at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. with a casino, cash bar, silent auction, Mexican buffet, raffle drawings and more, all benefiting the MHF. Advance tickets are $30 for MHF members, $35 for non-members and $40 at the door. Each ticket purchase includes $100 of funny money to use at the Player’s Choice Casino games. Come join us and help raise money to bring even more mustangs home.

All performance events throughout the weekend are free except for the freestyle finals performance on Saturday, Sept. 8. Tickets may be purchased in advance or on-site. Box and general admission seats are available, and children five years and under are free. Visit http://extrememustangmakeover.com/events/texas/ to learn more.
