Dan James of Double Dan Horsemanship and Smart Little Mustang make their run at one million dollars in cash and prizes at Mustang Million on September 17-21, 2013.
Smart Little Mustang is known as Punk around the barn, named after James’ longtime mentor and cutting horse trainer, Punk Carter. The competition will be held in the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Mustang Million is the richest, wild horse training event produced by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, the creators of the Extreme Mustang Makeover.
Due to over population and declining resources many Wild Mustangs are relocated into government wild horse holding facilities. More than 42,000 horses are housed at the Bureau of Land Management holding corrals in need of adoptions; the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s mission is to find positive homes for each wild mustang.
“As a trainer, I have always been intrigued by the intelligence and agility of Wild Mustangs,” says James. “Punk shows incredible potential, he picked up the Double Dan training methods extremely quickly.”
James has been selected by ABC Big Picture Productions as a possible reality television personality to document his experience through Mustang Million. James and Punk have already formed a resilient bond. Can’t wait to see James and Punk on TV?
