ALABAMA WILD MUSTANG and BURRO TIP CHALLENGES
MUSTANG OPEN SHOWS
This TIP Challenge is a cooperative effort between the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Trainer Incentive Program, the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Program , the event's host Southern Cross Ranch and the event's manager Mirka Crew.
The mission of the Mustang Heritage Foundation is to increase the adoption of BLM-housed American Mustangs and burros through innovative gentling (training) competitions and awareness programs. In keeping with this mission, the TIP Challenge has been created to place mustangs and burros in adoptive homes. These challenges involve youth (8-17 years of age) and adults (ages 18 and up) in the adoption and training of Mustangs and burros. Participants help promote the adoption of these national treasures by showcasing the animal’s value and trainability.
