I love em I think they are probably the most versatile breed of horses they can do anything and everything and be good at it. We had a 9 yr old mustang gelding his last owner let him suffer with pneumonia for months before dumping him at a sale where I got him, cost a small fortune and about a year of letting him take it easy before he finally was fit enough to ride. He was as bomb proof as a horse could get..the kids rode him all over everywhere saddled, bareback, doubles, I lead little kids around on him he loved all the attention..then he was stolen!
On the other hand we have Jazz which has a lot of mustang traits but I think she is a cross with what I don't know lol.
She is a handful to say the least but incredibly smart, not afraid of anything no matter how big it is, don't have a bit of spook in her. She's an extremely easy keeper never lame never sick but she is stubborn as the day is long. She is different from the other horses, hard to explain but there is definitely something different about her mannerisms almost primitive in nature.
Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway~~John Wayne
