The show is produced by the Mustang Heritage Foundation and hosted on E-SHOWS, the new online horse showing platform developed by the American Paint Horse Association.

“We are excited to partner with the Mustang Heritage Foundation and bring something new and fun to their riders and trainers,” said Steven Hayes, APHA chief marketing officer. “E-Shows is giving competitors across the globe the opportunity to do what they love from the comfort of their own arenas. We can’t wait to host the first ever Mustang Heritage E-Show.”
All BLM-branded mustangs owned or adopted are eligible to enter in one of three divisions, in hand; walk, trot or walk, trot, lope. BLM-branded burros are eligible to enter the in-hand division. Each trainer or owner must choose one division to enter and will be able to enter two horses in that division. Classes per division will be trail, pattern and freestyle.
Videos for each class will be reviewed, judged and scored by show judge, Dennis Cappel. Winners will be announced June 3 and awarded buckles and additional prizes.
The show fee is $15 per class. Entries will open May 20 at 8 a.m. CST and close May 26 at 5 p.m. CST. All entries and videos must be submitted during this timeframe.
The Foundation is dedicated to helping mustang owners and enthusiasts continue to show and enjoy mustangs during this unprecedented time.
“The health and safety of our trainers, owners and fans remains our top priority,” said equine director Stormy Mullins. “We’re pleased to partner with APHA to offer another avenue for trainers and owners to participate with their mustangs.”
