This year there are 20 competitors who will vie for a trophy saddle and championship belt buckle during the 2011 Teens and Oregon Mustangs Youth and Yearling Event on August 27 @ 9 a.m. Trainers selected for this years event picked up their yearling Oregon mustang on May 21, 2011, and have 98 days to gentle, ground train, prepare for showmanship, and expose their yearling horses to trail obstacles. The event will conclude with a show on Saturday, August 27, 2011, at the Yamhill County Fairgrounds located at 2070 NE Lafayette Ave., McMinnville, OR 97128, where they will compete for a trophy saddle, silver belt buckle, and the right to claim the title "Winner of the Third Annual Teens and Oregon Mustangs.
The purpose of this competition is to showcase Oregon youth and beauty, versatility, and trainability of these rugged horses that roam freely on public lands throughout the West where they are protected by the Bureau of Land Management BLM under Federal law. The BLM periodically removes excess animals from the range to ensure herd health and protect rangeland resources. Thousands of removed animals are then made available each year to the public for adoption. Animals not being adopted by their trainer/trainers family will be available for adoption at the Teens and Oregon Mustangs Event on August 27, 2010, at Yamhill County Fairgrounds.
This event is sponsored by the Mustang Heritage Foundation through their Youth and Yearling YAY program. They provide monetary as well as process and advertising support for this event. The YAY program was created to assist Trainer Incentive Program TIP trainers to sponsor youth events in their local communities and allow those under 18 years old to experience mustangs up close and personal.
These yearling mustangs were gathered from Oregon herd management areas by the BLM. Judging for this competition will be based upon conditioning of the horse, showmanship, and completion of an in-hand trail course. Many of the mustangs will be available for adoption through an oral bidding adoption following the event.
