We’re dedicated to facilitating successful placements for America’s excess wild mustangs and burros through innovative programs, events and education. With training programs that help more mustangs become gentled and adopted and educational programs that spread the mission of MHF, we’ve helped bring more than 15,000 mustangs home and into private care since 2007.
Learn more about our progress in our latest impact report and how, with your help, we can bring more mustangs home.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation produces national events and programs targeting potential adopters, youth, trainers and veterans to encourage education, training and the adoption of wild horses.
3 CITIES. 100 DAYS.
With approximately 100 days to tame wild to mild, trainers from across America compete for cash and prizes through a national training competition that showcases the beauty, versatility and trainability of America’s mustangs.
EXTREME MUSTANG MAKEOVER
Trainers work with a mustang that has been virtually untouched by humans and have approximately 100 days to gentle, halter break and saddle train, build trust and develop a relationship with the horse to compete and win cash and prizes.

For youth who want to become involved with American Mustangs the Mustang Heritage Foundation offers hands-on experiences for youth and young adults to learn about Mustangs and share their knowledge with others.
From the Extreme Mustang Makeover Youth Division competitions in Lexington, KY and Los Angeles in 2020 to the Youth & Mustang TIP Challenge competitions across the country, the Mustang Heritage Foundation offers the opportunity for youth ages 8-17 to train a 12-24 month-old mustang and compete for cash and prizes.
TRAINING FOR ADOPTION
The Mustang Heritage Foundation identifies talented trainers who employ their natural horsemanship techniques to gentle American Mustangs for adoption.
TIP TRAINER INCENTIVE PROGRAM
Halter train a wild horse or burro, place the animal in a new home and an approved trainer can earn up to $1000. An adopter can connect with TIP trainers and learn how they can adopt or purchase a mustang for $125.
Let’s celebrate the horses that are a part of our heritage. Let’s celebrate the spirit and the power of these majestic animals. The American Mustang.
Through education we will be able to better understand the needs of the mustang. Through interaction and personal contact we can see and experience their beauty and spirit. Through competition we can fully realize their talents and why they made such an impact on creating the America we know today.

With the help of the Mustang Heritage Foundation, military veterans choose a BLM mustang, untouched by humans, and transform the horse in approximately 100 days to a gentle, adoptable equine companion.
The veteran experiences the transformation from “wild to mild” within the horse, while learning marketable vocational skills and gaining on-the-job training for a future occupation in the equine industry.
