Any Other Mustang Enthusiasts Out There?

I have been working with mustangs for many years. Seen a lot of really cool horses, and a few not so good ones, just as in every breed. But I just wondered who else has experienced the joy of gentling a wild horse, and loves it?

Yeppers, I've had 2. The first I got was a 3 year old stud that had been adopted by some other folks and then basically abandoned when they realized that he was, in fact, wild.

I got him home, got him gelded, and started riding him. Now, he's my main guy for whatever I need whether it's carrying the flag in the local parade, pushing cattle across the prairie, or dragging a 1000 pound mad momma cow into a trailer.




The other had been adopted as a yearling by a friend of my Dads. When he was 3, she sent him off for training and got him back 30 days later with the label "untrainable" LOL. Well, I brought him home for $125 (she only wanted her adoption fee back) when he was 4 and he ended up turned out until he was 5 because I was living away from home and didn't have time to work with him. Well, I finally had the time, caught him up and started riding him. He went to a new home last fall and the girl that got him is extremely happy with him.

His 3rd ride, I think. Just before tossing him in the trailer and taking him through our cattle.


And with his new owner
Tianimalz and tinyliny like this.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

My boy Arrow is a mustang, and he's made me fall in love with the breed! :)

Very cool. They sure can be a versatile breed. And the majority of the ones I've worked with have been sure footed, and very hardy.

Yep!
Here's some!
(Oh and he's a mustang from the Navajo nations, not a BLM mustang so that's why he has the bar N brand and hip brand)

He does it all! He goes English and western, but I mainly do trail riding and gaming on him. :)

Hey, I thought I would share a few pics of one of my mustangs, but I don't know how to put pics on. Could I get anyone to walk me through it?

There are a couple of ways. The first way is to attach them directly from your computer hard drive. When you hit either the "Post Reply" button just below the most recent post or the "Go Advanced" button below the quick reply box, you will get to a reply page. Among the options on the reply box is an icon that looks like a little paperclip. If you click on that, it will let you select files from your computer to attach to the post.

Or, you can do like many of us do and upload your picture to another site like Photobucket, Flickr, etc. Then, you can just copy and paste them into your post.
