With more than 30,000 American Mustangs waiting to be adopted in BLM facilities, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is stepping up its efforts to help these American legends find adoptive homes. In 2011, the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Extreme Mustang Makeover events will continue to showcase the talents of the American Mustang and will up the ante by offering the largest purse ever in Mustang competition.
Building on the success of the 2010 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover, the 2011 event will be bigger and better. Two hundred Mustangs will be available for adoption and will be eligible to compete for their share of an estimated $200,000 purse at the September 16-17 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover to be held in Fort Worth, Texas.
With double the purse of the 2010 event, this will be the richest wild horse competition in history. With the larger purse available, the Supreme event follows a different format than other Extreme Mustang Makeovers, and Mustangs are adopted prior to the competition.
A competitive-bid adoption will be held April 16 and will be televised through Superior Auction Services on RFD-TV. Bidders must be pre-approved by March 1.
Excluding the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover event where horses will be adopted prior to competing, Mustangs will be available for adoption at all Extreme Mustang Makeover events.
