The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo and Sam’s Club have joined forces to present Mustang Magic Jan. 21-22 at the John Justin Arena. Some of the top Mustang trainers in the nation have been working with 24 previously untouched Mustangs, and they will all meet in Fort Worth to decide who takes home the Mustang Magic title.
With just more than 100 days to not only gentle but also teach the Mustangs basic riding maneuvers, the trainers will be displaying their incredible horsemanship skills throughout the event, while vying for a place in the top-10 finals and a share of the $10,000 purse.
Following the Jan. 22 finals, the public will have the chance to adopt the talented Mustangs that competed in Mustang Magic. Each Mustang goes to the highest bidder. Adopters must be preapproved by the Bureau of Land Management. Interested adopters can learn more about the BLM adoption requirements at wildhorseandburro.blm.gov. Adoption applications will be available on site, and BLM representatives will be available to answer any questions.
Admission to Mustang Magic is included with general admission tickets to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Celebrating its 115th anniversary, the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo’s 2011 schedule is packed with special events and exhibits. Grounds admission is just $10 for adults and only $5 for kids ages 6-16. Last year, the Mustang Magic crowd overflowed the John Justin Arena, so plan to arrive early to get a great seat.
Mustangs have been a long-time symbol of American freedom, and with the support of Sam’s Club and the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, even more Americans will get to witness the Mustang’s athleticism and grace at Mustang Magic.
Mustang Magic attendees are in for a special treat, as Extreme Mustang Makeover Youth Champions Amanda Sharp and Docs Little Brown will perform their award-winning routine in Fort Worth. Jumping through a ring of fire and jumping a line of barrels with just a single stride between each jump, Sharp and Docs Little Brown wowed the crowd in the Youth Yearling division in Tennessee.
With the unlimited imaginations of the trainers and the amazing ability of the Mustangs, fans attending Mustang Magic will have many surprises in store for them and won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind competition.
