The trainers will be competing for cash and prizes! There will be 6 Mustangs in the competition. 1st place wins a choice of keeping the Mustang or 100% of the funds raised from the auction of the Mustang immediately following the competition. 2nd place gets 50% of funds raised on the Mustang. 3rd through 6th will receive prizes in the form of items or gift certificates. Money added for prizes is pending.
Please keep in mind this is our first competition like this. We understand the money and hard work it takes to train a mustang and the prize may not compensate for the time put into the mustang. This event was created to assist the BLM in raising awareness about adoption for these horses and the Mustang as a breed's capability to be a great partner in any discipline.
This is a great opportunity for trainers to showcase their training skills and training program.
This event will not be a success without people interested in purchasing a mustang. We encourage anyone interested in adopting or purchasing a competition mustang to attend this event. The BLM will bring burros and mustang's who have been through their TIP program for adoption at the expo as well as providing us with the 6 mustang's for the competition. All animals will have a current health cert and coggins. TIP graduated animals will be halter broke, be able to pick up feet and will be able to load into a trailer.
