Elisa Wallace is an Eventer based out of Jasper, GA participating for the first time in the Extreme Mustang Makeover (http://www.extrememustangmakeover.com/). The Extreme Mustang Makeover is an initiative of the Mustang Heritage Foundation in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management. The program manages the American wild horse population by taking mustangs and giving them to trainers for 90 - 120 days (plus $700 for expenses), after which time trainers and horses compete and make the horses available for adoption to good homes. It's a win-win-win situation since the mustangs are given a good home (instead of being sent to slaughter), trainers have the opportunity to tame a wild horse and participate in an important part of America's heritage, and owners get a well-trained horse at a great price.
Elisa is now at the halfway point in her training of 'Fledge,' and has made fantastic progress! We have been documenting their experience on YouTube and posting regular updates to Facebook and Twitter. Elisa will compete with Fledge in Clemson, South Carolina, on October 19-21, 2012.
