Mustangs anyone?

What do you think of owning a mustang. If, you know where they are born and raised, with a good up bringing.
A mustang for english - dressage, with the possibility of jumping.
Anyone know anything about them?

What kind of mustang? Each one is different! Every HMA ha it's own unique blend of breeds some being drafty, others very similar to QHs and some with a great deal of QH influence. They can excel based in their confirmation and breed make-up in just about anything. You can find mistangs as big as 16h or taller. Some are great jumpers and one BLM mustang took 1st (i think) at dressage at Devon.

I've been into and researching about mustangs since I was a munchkin and my first horse was a Spanish Mustang. Different than BLM not range bred, some of her ancestors being Cherekee horses that traveled the trail of tears and were never truly wild. SMs excel in just about anything as well some are extraordinary dressage horses and jumpers. Check out:

But don't rule out finding the perfect mustang at the BLM, but some can be harder to get to trust you. But if you want one that's tame I'd go Spanish.

My half mustang does low level dressage right now, he's entered into his first intro level show in may. He also loves to jump and free jumps a lot. He'll be jumping under saddle once I get some lessons.

I agree with ^^, look around. All mustangs are different, mine for instance looks like a large sport horse type but others i've seen are shorter and stockier.

This is my mustang Camanche, I tryed jumping with him but it wasnt really his thing he enjoys driving cattle more, so that's what we use him for. He is a very sweet horses & loving when he wants to be, he can have an attitude but who dontst. Lol!



When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!
