Montrose County Fair & Rodeo: Wild Mustang Main Performance

About

The Montrose County Fair and the Bureau of Land Management have teamed up to offer youth an educational opportunity. The purpose of this program is to increase the adoption of mustangs to good homes and promote positive youth development. Throughout the summer 4H members will be working with yearling mustangs to gentle and train (halter break) them. At the Fair, the participants have the opportunity to showcase their hard work through a competition that includes handling class, leading trail class, and freestyle class. Following the competition, the mustangs will be offered to the trainers or public for adoption through a silent auction system. Spectators encouraged, free entry.

If you want to watch more of the Mustang activities, there will be an opportunity at 9am on Thursday July 29 in the Outdoor Arena.
