About the Mustang Heritage Foundation

The Mustang Heritage Foundation is a 501 (C)(3), public, charitable, nonprofit organization.

The primary mission of the Mustang Heritage Foundation is to create and promote programs and activities that provide information and education about wild horses and burros, elevate their image and desirability, provide opportunities to become involved in the wild horse and burro experience and secure adequate numbers of caring homes for excess horses. Working in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management the Mustang Heritage Foundation works to ensure healthy wild herds and rangelands through the placement of excess animals removed from public lands so future generations can enjoy this distinctive part of our American heritage. As a 501 (C)(3), public, charitable, nonprofit organization, the Mustang Heritage Foundation works to identify and develop sources of private financial funding to further support the mission of the Foundation. Please feel free to contact us. We want to hear from you.

    Alex Kappert

    Executive Director
     

    Alex serves as executive director for the Mustang Heritage Foundation leading and managing the foundation to meet the mission of increasing adoptions of America’s mustangs and burros. He is a skilled management and marketing professional with deep experience in the agricultural, event production and food industries, and brings to the Foundation an innate ability to build partnerships and collaborate on complex issues. A native of northern Colorado, Alex grew up raising and showing livestock and graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science. Since then he has honed his talents in strategy, business development, event production and marketing through roles at JBS Swift and 100X Marketing/Ram Rodeo. Prior to joining the Foundation, he directed marketing at Performance Foodservice - Temple, a nationally leading broadline food distributor with revenues averaging $700 million annually. Alex became convinced of the intelligence, trainability and adoptability of Mustangs as well as the challenges they face when his girlfriend (now wife) Christie competed in three Extreme Mustang Makeovers from 2014-2016. Alex and Christie live in Granger with their two Mustang geldings, a burro and a menagerie of other animals.

    Lizzy Foster

    Program Director, Extreme Mustang Makeover
     

    Though she grew up in the heart of Houston, Lizzy Foster has had a passion for horses her entire life. This enthusiasm is what inspired her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and a minor in agricultural economics from Texas A&M University. While attending A&M, she looked for any opportunity to work with horses. Her senior year she was hired by the Equine Embryo Research Lab, assisting veterinarians and lab staff with research projects and embryo shipments.
    She is now ecstatic to be a part of the Mustang Heritage Foundation team.
