The Mustang Heritage Foundation provides opportunities for youth to gentle and train yearling and two-year-old wild horses and then compete in programs and events.
This experience teaches youth problem-solving and leadership skills that will serve them in all areas of their lives, now and in the future.
Extreme Mustang Makeover Youth Division
Youth, ages 8-17, are eligible to compete in Extreme Mustang Makeover events offering youth divisions. In these events, youth have approximately 100 days to gentle and train a previously untouched horse. At the end of the training period, youth and their horses will compete in hand for cash and prizes. Trainers and their families will adopt the mustang prior to the competition.
TIP Challenge Youth Division
TIP Challenge events are offered around the country and hosted by knowledgeable and experienced TIP trainers. Youth are able to gentle and train a yearling or two-year-old untouched horse and compete in hand for cash and prizes. These events help increase adoption and awareness by showcasing the versatility and trainability of mustangs and burros.
