Meet Dr. Lamagamapus “Shiloh”, my 2017 Youth Extreme Mustang Makeover draw. Shiloh had never been touched and came straight from the wild. I was given 100 days to take him from wild to mild. I originally planned to adopt him out at the end of the hundred days, but the bond we share is too strong. After training, we headed to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, nine hours away from our home. We then competed in the Lexington Youth Extreme Mustang Makeover against 47 other trainers.

Shiloh truly stole my heart. Being able to take him from never being touched to wanting hugs and being brave in just 100 days was the greatest experience. I can’t wait to continue our training and find out what the Lord has planned for us. Follow our journey on Instagram at @cw.equines.


What #RightHorse means to me

It means that you don’t have to have a well-bred warm blood or quarter horse to be the best. You can be even better with a rescue waiting for a loving home. You will have rough times getting where you want to go, but wouldn’t you rather save a life?
