The Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge
 By Winniefield Park   •   22nd Oct 2019   •   939 views   •   0 comments


Sam VanFleet is a twenty-year-old former A-circuit jumper competitor who has found her passion in gentling Mustangs and PMU foals. She has been posting videos of her latest project, a mustang mare she is training for the Player’s Choice Mustang Makeover.

So far, there are ten videos in the series, starting with her explanation of how the challenge works, the selection process and bidding and how she will make her selection. She continues to post videos of her mare’s progress now that she has brought her home. VanFleet will continue to work with her horse until the Makeover competition in January of 2020.
