$200,000 in Purses & Bonuses Available at the
Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover

New divisions, more prize money and extra bonuses will make the Fort Worth, Texas, event the talk of the equine world!

Georgetown, Texas, January, 2011 – Building on the success of the 2010 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover, 200 Mustangs will be available for adoption April 16 and will be eligible for more than $200,000 in cash and prizes at the 2011 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover to be held September 15-17 at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

In addition to the $100,000 Legends division, two new divisions will be added – the $50,000 Idols division and the $20,000 Stars division. Mustangs competing in the Legends and Idols division will participate in three classes – trail, pattern and a trainer’s choice. Mustangs competing in the Star division will be shown in-hand and will not be ridden in the competition.

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 and the internet.

Bidders must be pre-approved by March 1. Mustangs can be trained and shown by someone other than their adopter. Videos and photos of the 200 Mustangs available for adoption are accessible at www.mustangheritagefoundation.org.

In addition to prize money available for each division, $25,000 in bonuses will be paid out at the event. Each division will have bonuses paid for Rookies, anyone that has never entered an Extreme Mustang Makeover event; Silver Bullets, trainers that are 50 years old or older at time of entry; and Young Guns, trainers that are 18-21 years of age at time of entry.

Fans will also have a voice as a Fan Favorite Award will be given during the Legends Finals.

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.

In 2011, Extreme Mustang Makeover events will be held in Norco, California; Fort Collins, Colorado; Tsaile, Arizona; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; and Fort Worth, Texas.

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. Trainers interested in competing in Extreme Mustang Makeover events must complete and submit an application, which are available for the first events at the Extreme Mustang Makeover website. Applications for Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover and the Arizona and Tennessee events are available online.
