Everyday Horsemanship is excited to announce that Laura Baker has been accepted to participate in the Extreme Mustang Makeover in Fort Worth, TX which will be held on September 8-10th by the Mustang Heritage Foundation. The Mustang Heritage Foundation selects contestants based on applications, references, and other qualifications. As one of the founders of Everyday Horsemanship, Baker has a considerable amount of knowledge working with horses. She has experience competing in liberty through The International Liberty Association as well as performing a freestyle liberty at Equine Affaire. She also has successfully gentled many wild mustangs from Theodore Roosevelt National Park including three that she owns herself.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation was established in 2001 and is a non-profit with a mission to help wild horses and burros. The goal of the foundation is to decrease the number of wild horses in BLM holding facilities by increasing the number of successful adoptions and placements into private care. Since it was founded, MHF has placed more than 20,000 mustangs and burros into private care.
The Extreme Mustang Makeover was created because of the mission of The Mustang Heritage Foundation. The first Extreme Mustang Makeover was held in Forth Worth, Texas, in 2007. The event was highly successful and became the talk of the horse industry. Extreme Mustang Makeover events are held across the country each year and thousands of equine enthusiasts have witnessed the trainability and versatility of the American Mustang.
Baker has dedicated her life to horses throughout her life and is thrilled to have this opportunity in the Extreme Mustang Makeover. “Horses are a passion of mine,” stated Baker. “Every horse deserves the chance to a good life, and I’m delighted that I can help be a part of the mission that The Mustang Heritage Foundation has created.”
