Wild free-roaming Mustangs are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of America’s history. Rumor has it these six Mustangs were born into the wild and then found themselves on the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota. The sanctuary is another wild landscape where horses roam free in herds, but their population gets to be so high that there is pressure to remove some of them…and that is where our story begins.
In partnership with the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center, these six Mustangs came to Huntington Beach with a goal and intention of caring for them and hopefully finding a forever home for each one. Free Rein Foundation decided to embrace our entire community and include the horse trainers in the process, which is why we started the 120 Day Mustang Challenge.
Think of these Mustangs as adopted kids new to your neighborhood. Their personalities are coming out, in some cases slowly, and in others, as bold as a sunrise! As you follow them, we will share with you their “new” stories. The Huntington Beach Stories: How have they adjusted to the California sunshine? How did they react to the separation of their little herd? And of their training adventure with six highly qualified and caring horse trainers, who is loving and caring for who first?
Every Mustang has a story. Every Trainer, a journey to share. Join us!
