Mustang begins new life at our place as he prepares for Extreme Makeover

Our newest friend, a mustang to be trained for the Extreme Mustang Makeover competition, and hopefully, his forever home - Poudre River Stables - Fort Collins - Colorado - 80521FORT COLLINS -- Life began anew today for a bay four-year-old Mustang gelding who will live and learn at our stable until June 8 - 10 when he finds his forever home at the Extreme Mustang Makeover competition at Colorado State University.

The wild horse's foster mom, Cayla Stone, a CSU Equine Sciences graduate who has a strong showing and instructional background, will train him. We have high hopes for our newest friend. Cayla rescued a Thoroughbred this fall, trained that horse, and sold him to a good home a few months later as a hunter-jumper-eventing prospect.

Trainers must apply to be accepted in the Extreme Mustang Makeover program. Those competing at an Extreme Mustang Makeover event receive $700 for reimbursed expenses. There are no entry fees.

More than $350,000 in estimated prize money will be available at the 2012 Extreme Mustang Makeover events. Stay tuned as we follow this new adventure!
