mustangs

Hello all I have not been on in a long while do to surgerys and working horses . But I will chime in on the mustangs as barrel horses as well as any other use. I do own mustangs several of them from 3 months old to 18 years old. And have traind over 60 of them in my short 60 yrs here on this earth. My new wife is rideing barrels on a 6 yrold mustang gelding from the nevada range. And is burning up the barrels with B J . SHE is also doing pole with him . He was totally wild when we got him just off the range long enough to be moved to holding pens when I went and picked him up , He is small at just 14 h but large in speed and power as well as heart . He was a bit tough to gentle as he was still a stud but came on well and he is gelded now for safty concerns at shows but he will run with the best and still be going when the rest are done. My 6 yrold daughter just started youth rodeo and is rideing a 18 yr old mustang gelding and he also came to me wild and now is such a great horse and a forgiveing animal that we use him to do all kinds of different rideing with him. YES I do have other breeds of horses twh qt and some twh / qt crosses ect but the mustang is our perfered ride in any situation. If you take your time and don't hurt the horse and keep there confidence in you themn you will have the best horse to ride and enjoy for life as they are sound tough and very special horse

I want a mustang

Anyone seen the Mustang Makeover show? I think that's a really cool idea, and it's soo much fun to watch!

they show it on RFD tv-saw it a couple of weeks ago-just fantastic what those trainers and those Mustangs can do-to overcome what blm does in capturing them (not critisizing-its got to be so friggin scarey) and all the adjustments they have to make mentally as well as physically-just beautiful!!!

My Mustang mare

My Lady!!! She is a 17 year old mustang from the nevada range that was caught in 1992. She is the best riding horse I ever owned!
I am glad there are others who do not think mustangs are crazy!!!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
