The event will offer a level of competition for every horse enthusiast who hasthe desire to work with a wild horse – or the means to hire someone to train and/or show one. Mustang Million will offer a substantial amount of prize money in classes designed for both professionals and those that only want to lead at halter. A youth division will also be offered. Wild Mustang yearlings will be trained by youth, ages 8-17, for competition. If you are not interested in training or competing yourself, you can still adopt a Mustang and hire a trainer or exhibitor to compete on your behalf so that you can be a part of the effort of protecting the heritage of America’s wild herds.

COMPETITION OPTIONS: The Mustang Million competition will consist of three competitive options – Legends, Youth and Specialty Classes. Exhibitors in the Legends and Specialty Classes divisions must be 18 years old or older and exhibitors in the Youth division must be 8-17 years old as of July 15, 2013.

Legends will pay out approximately $750,000* with $200,000 and a 2014 RAM Truck awarded to the Overall Champion, $100,000 awarded to the Overall Reserve Champion and cash plus prizes dedicated to the remaining Top 20 Finalists AND the top 10 highest scoring exhibitors in each of three classes.

Specialty Classes will pay out approximately $150,000* in 12 stand-alone classes (no overall finalists will be awarded).
