Extreme Mustang Makeover
So I've decided to do the Extreme Mustang Makeover for Youths a year from now. My parents have agreed, but I have to return the Mustang to the BLM after the contest because we can't support a second horse financially. It's heartbreaking, but I know that by starting its training, I will have assured it a better possibility of a forever home.
My problem is that I want a list of necessary (or helpful, even if not 100% needed) equipment for starting a horse.
The horse I have now is at a barn, not on my property. However, my family goes to our summer house for the summer, which is when I'd do the contest. I would rent some land and keep both horses on that land. So, I know I need to find a farrier, vet, hay supplier, etcetera in the area. Also, I need to find potential locations to bring the Mustang to get him over his fear of new places. Any pointers on training, setting up a living space, etcetera? When the time comes, I'll be sure to keep everyone updated!
