In various regions across the United States small competitions (Youth & Yearling Mustang Challenges) are being held for youth who are interested in training and competing with a yearling Mustang.  These competitions are managed and hosted by approved trainers in our Trainer Incentive Program.  Youth trainers in these programs pick up a yearling 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 yearling prior to the start of the competition, but they can transfer the adoption to another individual after the competition. See below for specifics regarding 2014 Youth & Yearling Mustang Challenges.

·         Youth trainers compete for prizes and awards

·         Youth trainers receive $200 in reimbursed expenses
