MUSTANG
2016

Let’s celebrate the horses that are a part of our heritage. Let’s celebrate the spirit and the power of these majestic animals. Let’s come together to discover who the American Mustangs are, where they are located and  what they need .

Through education we will be able to better understand the needs of the mustang. Through interaction and personal contact we can see and experience their beauty and spirit. Through competition we can fully realize their talents and why they made such an impact on creating the America we know today.

THE MUSTANG HELPED DEFINE OUR COUNTRY

THE HISTORY OF MUSTANGS IN AMERICA

The first mustangs descended from Iberian horses brought to Mexico and Florida. Some of these horses were sold, escaped or were captured by Native Americans, and rapidly spread by trade and other means throughout western North America.

WHERE ARE MUSTANGS TODAY?

It is estimated that 67,000 wild horses are roaming on managed rangelands in 10 Western states, based on the latest data available as of March 1, 2016. Wild horses and burros have virtually no natural predators and their herd sizes can double about every four years. Off the range there are 46,000 other wild horses and burros fed and cared for at short-term corrals and long-term pastures.

It is time for all of us as Americans to come together to celebrate this symbol of the American spirit.
