Virtual Mustang Makeover
 By Winniefield Park   •   12th Sep 2020   •   444 views   •   0 comments


Many equestrian events have been cancelled, but with some ingenuity, others have made an attempt to carry on safely despite COVID-19. Each year, the Extreme Mustang Makeover offers a chance for young trainers to prove their horse training and handling skills. Normally, the culmination of the project would be held in Kentucky, but this year, youth contestants showed their work via video making this the first virtual Mustang Makeover.
