A competition of BLM-branded mustangs, the Mustang Open competition is for adults and youth who want to continue to compete and showcase the abilities of their mustangs.
As an effort to further the connection between the Mustang Heritage Foundation and program adopters, the Mustang Open was created. Since 2007, MHF has placed over 7,500 mustangs into private care. Many of these horses have continued training in a wide range of disciplines and events. The Mustang Open invites all BLM-branded mustangs and burros to participate in a fun, all-around event to showcase their adopted animals and interact with other adopters and enthusiasts.
The competition is divided into three divisions including in-hand, walk-trot and walk-trot-lope with each division featuring trail, pattern and freestyle classes. Exhibitors ages 8 years and older are eligible to enter. Mustang Open shows will be held in conjunction with Extreme Mustang Makeover events in Florida, Kentucky and Texas in 2017.
