2013 Mustang Million

One thousand Mustangs available for adoption & eligible to compete 

for $1 million in cash & prizes.

 

April 2013 issue  

 

      The Mustang Heritage Foundation is giving Mustang enthusiasts a million reasons to join us in 2013 – Mustang Million!

      In 2013, approximately 1,000 wild, untouched Mustangs will be available for adoption at live auction events across the United States . Mustangs adopted through the Mustang Million adoptions will be eligible to compete for their share of $1,000,000 in prize money.

      Mustang Million is scheduled to take place in Fort Worth , Texas , in September 2013 and will feature an adult division, a youth division and 12 specialty classes. There is a place for all horse enthusiasts from professionals to recreational riders.

      The specialty classes will range from in-hand classes, where horses will be shown at halter and not ridden, to working cow horse classes with walk-trot only classes in the middle.

      Building on the success of the 2012 youth division at the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover, Mustang yearlings will be available for adoption in 2013 for youth exhibitors and adults wanting to compete in the specialty in-hand classes. The yearlings are not ridden during the competition.

      The youth division is open to horse enthusiasts between the ages of 8-17 as of July 15, 2013. The youth will be competing for $50,000 in prize money, which will be distributed to the top 10 youth finalists.

      With the larger purse available, Mustang Million follows a different format than other Extreme Mustang Makeovers, and Mustangs are adopted prior to the competition.

      The Mustangs, who are virtually untouched by humans, will be adopted and picked up in April and May to begin their training.

      With more than 45,000 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. The Mustang Heritage Foundation’s competitive events continue to showcase the talents of the American Mustang.

      Since the first Extreme Mustang Makeover event was held in 2007, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has facilitated the adoptions of more than 3,300 gentled American Mustangs.

      In 2013, the Foundation in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management will continue to increase its efforts to raise awareness of adoptions of America ’s Mustangs.
