Photo Opportunity - EXTREME MUSTANG MAKEOVER

AUGUST 2-4 at GLOUCESTER COUNTY DREAM PARK

WHAT:
The Extreme Mustang Makeover returns to Gloucester County, New Jersey, tomorrow. This exciting competition challenges trainers to gentle and ride a wild horse in approximately 100 days.
 
Thirty-nine trainers picked up Mustangs, ages 4 to 5, in early April and have spent much of the summer preparing their horse for the event. These horses, which were virtually untouched by humans, represent dozens of herds located all over the West.  Mustang and rider teams will compete in preliminary classes, including: handling and conditioning, a pattern class, and a trail obstacle course, which will include in-hand and riding obstacles.  The top ten horse and trainer pairs will advance to the Freestyle Finals, in which they have the chance to show off their skills and creativity with music, costumes, and props.  The Freestyle Finals is a thrilling conclusion that showcases the Mustangs’ trainability, athleticism, and grace.  Trainers will compete for an estimated $19,500 in prize money.
