    Looking at a mustang?!

    Ok so I am doing some work for a lady and she has a beautiful mustang. He is 2.5 years old, branded etc on his neck. Couple questions:

    What should I look for in him? His ground manors are great! And he can be put in a saddle etc with no problem (not sure of bit yet)

    Is there a certain way they have to be trained etc?

    I am currently riding a 5 yr old OTTB, but I do alot of trail riding and not much eventing, would a mustang do better?

    Nope, you train a mustang the same way you train any other horse. Though sometimes they take a little longer to get comfortable with what you are asking them to do. Just take your time and keep working at it.

    As for what he can do, he can do anything you want him to do. With proper training, a mustang can certainly be competative at lower levels of pretty much any discipline, though it is unlikely they would be suitable for higher levels. I have 2 that I use for trail riding and cattle/ranch work and they are great for that. It isn't that he would be better at trails than your OTTB, just different. You need to decide which one you like more.
