In your case, I think you would have to take extra precautions to keep your Mustang from escaping. Being used to living in the wild, they may be even more likely to try and escape if they found a local herd to join. This could be more of an issue if your Mustang was the only horse on your property (no companions). Although the few we adopted down here have bonded pretty well with humans, they definitely like being around other horses. I guess this is true of all breeds.
Of course, the wild ones may sit around drinking beers and laughing at your captive. :)
