Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Apr 21, 2015

Extreme Mustang Makeovers and the Mustang Heritage Foundation  

Mustang Heritage FoundationWe done a number of shows on mustangs.  We talked to Alan Day about his book The Horse Lover.  We previewed the documentary about mustangs, Unbranded.  And, we spoken with trainers who have successfully worked mustangs like Matt Sheridan.  But, I really didn't know too much about mustangs and their plight in the U.S.  It was easy to get a hold of the Mustang Heritage Foundation for information.

The Mustang Heritage Foundation was formed to foster adoptions of BLM mustangs in holding pens.  It is estimated that there are 50,000 horses being cared for by the BLM.  I contacted Kyla Hogan, promotion director of the Mustang Heritage Foundation, to get more information about their adoption programs.  We also get some great information about the Extreme Mustang Makeover events around the country.  The Extreme Mustang Makeover is a wonderful showcase to highlight the great qualities of these amazing horses.

Kyla told me about an excellent young trainer, Madison Shambaugh, who had competed successfully at the Virginia Extreme Mustang Makeover.  I was able to contact Madison and ask her about her mustang, Terk.  Madison also generously shared some of her training and horsemanship tips.

About Us

Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship.   I am your host  John Harrer.  Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse.  It could be feeding or supplementation.  It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots.  We cover training problems, or competing in shows.  We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors.  We talk about movies, books and magazine articles.  And, we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse.   That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
