Exciting Changes Underway at Mustang Heritage Foundation

As Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) closes out the month of March, there is excitement for what 2023 has in store. They are setting records, continuing a strong partnership with the Bureau of Land Management, and have big plans ahead for this year and beyond! They have added some exceptionally talented people to their team to help build and grow into the future. From board members to staff, they are bringing in new expertise and ideas so they can continue helping mustangs and burros!

March typically signals a big ramp up in placements in the organization’s Trainer Incentive Program (TIP) and this year is off to a stellar start. MHF is kicking off this year’s TIP season with a brand-new all-time record of 566 wild horse and burro placements in a single month! With 19 TIP Challenges scheduled this year, including 4 TIP Challenges piloting new Mounted Divisions, and a new TIP Storefront in Texas added to the team, great things are underway.

The Bureau of Land Management announced on Monday, March 27, 2023 an award of $4 million to Mustang Heritage Foundation to continue their long-standing partnership with the Wild Horse and Burro Program. MHF greatly appreciates the work that the Bureau of Land Management does and looks forward to what the two organizations will accomplish together. In this new agreement, there are big plans to expand upon mounted training for mustangs, develop adopter resources, and build innovative programs to help achieve MHF’s mission of bringing mustangs home.

Speaking of big plans, MHF’s highly anticipated Franklin, Tennessee Extreme Mustang Makeover is scheduled for this June 22-24, 2023. Over 100 horses were picked up to compete in the event and ticket sales are already coming in strong. Following on the heels of a very successful Mustang Magic with record breaking crowds and sold out seats, you will definitely want to get your tickets early!

On staff, MHF is excited to add Katlyn Puclik-Baker as Director of Marketing. Katlyn has a strong non-profit background with expertise in both marketing and development, which will be a valuable asset as the organization looks towards building and fundraising for new programs in the future. She also has a lifetime love of horses, having been on the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association team in undergrad and completing an internship with the University of Arkansas Equine Program.

For the Franklin, Tennessee Extreme Mustang Makeover, MHF has brought Cohn Livingston onboard as a Contract Equine Logistics Coordinator. He has a background as a clinician and a strong history with Extreme Mustang Makeovers as a competitor and judge. He has a true enthusiasm for the event and they are looking forward to an amazing show!

Mustang Heritage Foundation is very grateful to have so many amazing people committed to help bring mustangs home!
