Building on the success of previous years, the Mustang Heritage Foundation is proud to partner with the Extreme Cowboy Association again for their 2023 World Championships. The EXCA World Championships will be held November 1-5, 2023, in Glen Rose, TX.
As part of the World Championship, Mustang Heritage Foundation and EXCA partner to produce the New Partner Race; a separate event held during the World Championship, open to any mustang adopted or purchased between November 1, 2022, and October 1, 2023. Horses competing in the Extreme Mustang Race are eligible for approximately $10,000 in cash and prizes awarded to the Top 10 competitors.
The New Partner Race will be based on the Extreme Cowboy Race format and utilize a similar level of difficulty to that of the Non-Pro division. Each competitor will have one chance to prove themselves on the course in the preliminary round before the Top 3 are selected for a final round.

If a mustang was adopted through an EMM or Mustang Magic, Mustang Heritage Foundation allows either the original EMM or Mustang Magic trainer or the adopter to show the horse.
