In various regions across the United States small competitions (Youth & Mustang Challenges) are being held for youth who are interested in training and competing with a 12-24-month-old Mustang.  These competitions are managed and hosted by approved trainers in our Trainer Incentive Program.  Youth trainers in these programs pick up a Mustang (age 12-24 months old) approximately 90 days before the competition and may compete in the following areas – Conditioning, In-Hand Trail Class, Showmanship, Costume, Freestyle, etc.  Youth and their families are required to adopt their Mustang prior to the start of the competition, but they can reassign the adoption to another individual after the competition. See below for specifics regarding 2015 Youth & Mustang Challenges.
