Our Youth are The Future
Hear from just a few Mustang Heritage Foundation youth program participants as they share their unique experiences with the all important “tag off” day.
Since Alex saw his oldest sister compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover last year, he has thought about training his own mustang one day.
It had been a dream of mine to gentle a mustang since I saw them at a local adoption event as a little kid, a dream I thought would never come true.
I first learned kids could gentle mustangs when I watched an Extreme Mustang Makeover in Massachusetts when I was 8 years old.
I wanted to give up. I remember I started to cry, but I took a moment and a huge, deep breath.
On May 3rd, 2021, I was finally able to remove my first mustang’s neck tag after having her for five days.
Phoenix was my draw for the youth division of the 2022 Fort Worth Extreme Mustang Makeover.
