Extreme Mustang gets second chance

Of the 100 mustangs chosen for the 2007 event, only 82 made it to the show. The last 18 did not make it for a variety of reasons. A few made it back to the corrals in Nevada, but one made it to Burns, OR.

While I intended to participate in the new Mustang Heritage Foundation's Trainer Incentive Program, it was going to be difficult to obtain another mustang from Nevada. Last weekend, I attended the Kiger Adoption in Burns. Quite by accident, I found out that there was an EMM mustang waiting there to return to Palomino Valley. I wasted no time in asking if I could take him home to finish his training. I was granted permission and just like that, I have an incentive horse!

For those of you out there that wished they adopted an EMM horse or were bidding against me for Patriot, here's your chance! I get to train this new guy and I can sell him directly to you, no auction!

He's a very cute, dark brown gelding, about 14.3 hands, with a small star and white on his coronet band of the right rear leg. He's still wild, but was willing to try and join up and very sensible. He is lighter boned, forward thinking with lift in his shoulders and drive from behind.

I will gentle and start him the same way as Patriot with natural horsemanship techniques and classic dressage training.

If you are interested in this horse, please email me ASAP and we can chat.
