With more than 30,000 American Mustangs waiting to be adopted in BLM facilities, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is stepping up its efforts to help these American legends find adoptive homes. In 2011, the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Extreme Mustang Makeover events will continue to showcase the talents of the American Mustang and will up the ante by offering the largest purse ever in Mustang competition.
The year began in Fort Worth at the Southwestern Exposition Livestock Show and Rodeo with the invitational Mustang Magic. In May, Extreme Mustang Makeover returns to Norco, California. Living up to its Horsetown USA moniker, Norco competitors will showcase their Mustangs’ talents on an urban trail course as well as other classes. The event is scheduled for May 13-15, 2011.
Equine superstar Al Dunning will again add extra excitement to the Extreme Mustang Makeover in Fort Collins, Colorado. Dunning will offer insight and coaching at the Colorado State University event June 10-12.
The storied history shared by Mustangs and Native Americans will be front and center when the Extreme Mustang Makeover makes a stop at the Navajo Nation and Diné College in Tsaile, Arizona. The scenery will be breathtaking and the experience unforgettable August 12-14, 2011.
The final stop on the schedule will be Murfreesboro, Tennessee, October 21-23, 2011. The Extreme Mustang Makeover returns to Tennessee Miller Coliseum on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.
Excluding the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover event where horses will be adopted prior to competing, Mustangs will be available for adoption at all Extreme Mustang Makeover events. Visit www.extrememustangmakeover.com for the latest information on the Extreme Mustang Makeover events.

I have seen the Mustang, when they came near our town, and I think they are really worth the effort to help and save them.
Mustangs are really awsome horses. I use to own one he was from the wild and he made a great trail horse but he really didn’t want to be alone. I would love to have another one but I really do think that they belong out in the wild cause that is their home and that’s what they know is the wild I think they should just let them be.
I’d go to one of those events..I own a spansih mustang and I cant get enough of him..He’s an amazing horse. My horse was actaully a rescue, and I’d never get rid of him
A girl at my barn just got one. He is around 6 months and is the sweetest thing. I just have fallen in love with him.
I wish I was close enough to an adoption center to get a mustang.
I’m so entering the art contest, hopefully my stuff will be shown. 🙂
I’ve always dreamt of training a mustang. Someday…
I do hope the Horse Channel will have coverage of all the events this year and follow ups!!!!????
