Can you imagine a world where there is a widespread demand for Mustangs, where they are known for their innate talents, not just the burden they place on our public lands and tax dollars?
Wild Rose Mustang Advocacy Group Incorporated (Wild Rose MAGIC) is a 501(c)(3) organization run by a team of experienced volunteers with an unbridled passion for Mustangs. Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, our mission is to foster, train and rehome American Mustangs to showcase their innate talents and versatility.
Many of our Mustangs arrive to us having never been handled and understandably, afraid. Using natural horsemanship techniques, we show them that humans can be trusted, that they can look to humans to calm their fears, and a partnership develops.
We start with basic haltering, picking up feet, and trailering; progress to groundwork, under saddle training, and showing. This process can be as short as 2-4 months or up to a year depending on the needs of each individual horse. Once they have 2-4 months of under saddle training, they are offered for adoption.
Our head trainer, Cayla Stone, has trained over 50 Mustangs in the past 10 years using natural horsemanship techniques. We aim to provide the necessary under saddle training that Mustangs need to be more easily adopted.
Advocates for The Breed
There are many misconceptions about the Mustang breed’s ability to become an equine companion. Our history with training, rehoming, and showing Mustangs in National competitions proves without doubt that Mustangs can be a mount for competitive and leisure riders alike.
OUR ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO FOSTER, TRAIN, AND REHOME 100-200 MUSTANGS PER YEAR AS NEEDED TO PREVENT THEM FROM LIVING OUT THEIR LIVES IN GOVERNMENT LONG TERM HOLDING FACILITIES OR ENDING UP IN THE SLAUGHTER PIPELINE.
As our financial resources allow, we welcome Mustangs into our training program directly from the Bureau of Land Management, from private owners needing to rehome or surrender their Mustang, and from feedlots. In addition to training, we are committed to providing our Mustangs the veterinary care, farrier, chiropractic, and nutrition they require.
