Mustang Makeover Challenge: From wild to mild

Posted

LABELLE -- The dedicated youth trainers and their wild horses walked through town, Sunday, May 2. They meandered through town, getting used to the new sights and sounds, and even visited the McDonald’s drive through and Pelican Snowballs.

The youth handlers use everything they’ve learned back on the ranch, during the last few, hard weeks, and help their horses stay calm while they travel through town. Exposing the wild horses to traffic, new people, and other things they might find scary or threatening, helps with the training and gentling process. As they get used to the different sights and sounds, they become desensitized, safer, and more reliable, making them suitable for adoption.

“I absolutely love seeing the kids walk through town with their mustangs. I look forward to it every year,” said Frances Patten, a long time LaBelle resident and equine enthusiast.

The trainers and their mustangs are looking forward to showing off all their accomplishments at the From Wild to Mild: 2021 Mustang Makeover Challenge on Saturday, May 8 at HWLM Horsemanship located at 2100 G Road, in LaBelle. The public is invited to attend.
