Since the first Extreme Mustang Makeover event was held in 2007, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has facilitated the adoptions of more than 3,000 gentled American Mustangs.

In 2012, the foundation, in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management, will continue to increase its efforts to raise awareness of adoptions of America’s Mustangs, hosting eight Extreme Mustang Makeover events.

The year begins in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with the invitational Mustang Magic. More than 20 Mustangs and their trainers are scheduled to compete January 19-21, 2012. The Mustangs will be available for adoption following the competition.
