Does anybody ride a mustang? Was it wild or was it already trained when you got it? Has anyone trained a mustang before? What about the mustang makeover youth and yearling challenge? I really want to enter the youth and yearling challenge next year but i have quite a few questions. Could i still do it even though i would have to board my mustang? How would i transport the mustang to the final competition? I have a friend who said i could use her trailer but it isnt a stock trailer. Could i rent a trailer or hire transportation? Any tips on training a mustang? I know i would have to work with it everyday but would it be ok to miss one day a week? Like on the weekend? Thanks for any help.

Have you ever trained a domesticated horse before? If you haven't, then don't even think about trying it with a mustang. They're great horses once they're trained, but they have a lot different on a mindset in the beginning than a domesticated horse does, and they require someone very experienced.

You've had enough, but just don't give up. Stick to your guns, you are worth fighting for. You know we've all got battle scars, keep marching on.

I have never trained a horse of my own but i have trained other people's horses and i have watched a couple people from my old barn work with their mustangs. The youth mustang makeover allows me to get help from a parent, friend, riding instructor, etc. so my barn's trainer agreed to help me if i needed it. I completely understand your doubts and i have been studying horse behavior and training for a couple of years. I feel like i am ready. For the youth edition all i have to do is halter break them and desensitizing and such. No riding because they are just yearlings. And supposedly, the yearling mustangs are usually calmer than the adult ones. Thank you though. :)

Training a mustang is one of my latest goals. I need more experience yet training other horses first, but its on my bucket list!

Can we please recognize that there are experienced horsemen who have been around horses their whole lives who would struggle with this?
A 12 year old kid who's read about horse behavior for a couple years is extremely likely to get hurt. Not a good idea.

That is a rude thing to say. I am pretty sure that none of us who said we want to it do are 12. And i said it is a goal. I do not mean it as "im going to go out a train a mustang" i want to get more experience and do it when i am older. I did not like what you said about me and the others and now you just made me want to prove you wrong.

Everyone's level of experience is different. And its okay to have goals. I sure do.
That was my two cents....

Actually no, that was a realistic thing to say.
You said you want to do it next year.
I never said anything about anyone else...?
Believe it or not I don't get a kick out of being rude to people for no reason. I'm genuinely concerned for your safety.

This is an older thread and since i have started it, i have decided to wait a few years. And i thought since you never specifically said who you were talking to, that it was meant towards me and dressage4fun because we both said it is one of our goals. Thank you for being concerned but you dont even know me so you have nothing to worry about. And i did not like what you said about me being a 12 year old who has only read books. I apologize and i hope you will too.

I have the same dream that you do! I have never really done any serious training with horses, but I have done some training. To be an expert trainer, you have to have patience, experience, and you have to take everything slow and in stride. ( A bit of wisdom I've learned from past experience.) See you later!
