Mustang Magic, Champion and Reserve

On a lighter note than this morning...here are the champion and reserve champion from this weekend's Mustang Magic in Fort Worth, TX!

I guarantee you'll be impressed with what these two trainers were able to do in 90 days. Heck, you'd barely see a domestic bred horse with 90 rides able to do what these boys did going from wild!







Were you impressed? Me, too! Get out there and ride!

Wow - I just love watching the results of the Mustang competitions. However, I personally thought the Reserve Champion was a whole lot better than the Champion :) Thanks for posting these!

Wow, makes me cry. These mustangs are so smart if you get their confidence.

Tracey said...

Shirley, that is the key! Confidence is everything, both for you and the horse.

Wow! I had to look twice at the second ride- all done bridleless! Looks like bridleless performances are the most popular thing going right now, thanks largely to Stacey Westfall. Goes to show the importance of body language when you are riding, and how horses can pick up on the most subtle cues. Those trainers both did wonderful work on their horses.

Impressive and I have to say I liked the second ride best too. I liked how the horses carried himself

Wasn't it the conditioning score that separated the two? That the second one actually did do better score-wise under saddle, but the first horse did better in the 'fitting and showing' (for lack of the correct term, use the 4-H one, lol)? Thought I'd read that somewhere.

While both rides were impressive, I definitly enjoyed Logan's ride more.

Really impressive! I have not words, that is so cool. (I watched the second video, the first apparently got removed)

The first video was taken off line, but I think I found it from another YouTube poster.

Both had their strong points that's for sure...they sure are doing some fine stuff with these "wild" horses!!

Glad you posted Tracey.
