Mustang TIP Challenge – Pick Up at North Atlanta Equestrian Center
The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the Trainer Incentive Program, better known as TIP, to bridge the gap between potential adopters/purchasers and American Mustangs housed at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) off-range facilities. The MHF looks for talented trainers who employ natural horsemanship techniques to gentle American Mustangs. In December 2019, 51 wild mustangs and burros were delivered to North Atlanta Equestrian Center in Cartersville, GA where they were all picked up by approved TIP trainers to begin their 100 day training. The mustangs and their trainers will showcase their progress in April for the 2020 Mustang TIP Challenge in efforts to then match qualified adopters/purchasers with the now gentled American Mustangs. Since 2007, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has placed over 9,500 mustangs into private care. Many of these horses have continued training in a wide range of disciplines and events.
