Luna’s Extreme Mustang Makeover Journey 2020

The Beginning to Current ~ Overview

2020 has been quite the year! The pandemic causing delays and adjustments to just about everything, and especially public events. One such event that was effected was the Extreme Mustang Makeover for California. It was supposed to be held between the dates of April 24-25 (pick up days) to the competition days August 7-9th. 

When Trainer Monica O. Krause was chosen to participate in this event, it was during the beginning stages of the pandemic. The previous dates for the makeover had then been given the status of TBA. For two months it wasn’t known if where or when the competition would take place, until finally the trainers were given notice that it would be continued as a virtual event. 

The 100 days to work with the wild horses would begin on July 17-18 (pick up days) and end for the trainers to submit their virtual competition videos on October 30th. Here is the event hosts website

The actual online event will take place as a watch party on Facebook.  

     The 2020 California Extreme Mustang Makeover will take place virtually this year, on Facebook!
     Join us to watch trainers compete for $25,000 in cash and prizes by showing the trust they’ve built with untouched wild horses over the past 100 days. Competitors will demonstrate their progress in a handling and conditioning class, a pattern class, and a trail class. Then, the Top 10 adult competitors will compete in a Freestyle Finals performance on Saturday, November 14.

     All adult horses will be available to the public through an online auction hosted by Champion Horse Sales. The auction will be open November 11 – 14, and interested buyers must apply to bid online before November 13. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own a talented mustang!”
