Extreme Mustang Makeover and Dressage

The VA Horse Festival

Here are a few shots from this past weekend during the VA horse Festival. The first few images are from the amature mustang makeover class and the rest are from the Britta Johnston dressage demonstration. This was a dangerous event in more than one way. The first being that the trainers in the mustang challenge are working with horses that were wild 120 days ago. The second being that I almost got another mustang during the live auction, mustangs are a glorious addiction :-) Most of my images are from the Dressage demonstration only because I needed to really pay attention to the mustangs in case I found one that I wanted. During the mustang challenge I met and watched a very talented young lady, I have to share her story, her name is Madison Shambaugh and she competed in The Extreme Mustang Makeover challenge. I hope you all have time to read about her and watch her freestyle performance... it was beautiful and there was not a dry eye in the audience. Here is a link to her performance.  http://cavaloruniversity.com/mustang-maddy-and-her-mustang-terk/
