Come say goodbye to a friend we have come to know!
The Mustang, who has been named JP, will be leaving Sunday, April 13th to head to the Midwest Mustang Makeover competition in Madison, WI and adoption held by the Bureau of Land Management. Come see his premier public performance on Friday, April 11th, at 6 PM. Ruben will be demonstrating the progress he and JP have made in their partnership as trainer and trainee. JP arrived January 12th as a wild mustang and will be leaving Benton City well on his way as a trained horse. Come help celebrate their successes!
There will be other Horsemen's Western Dressage horses performing as a prelude to JP's debut.
This will be a fundraising event also defray the costs of taking JP to Madison. The Mustang Heritage Foundation (a NonProfit Organization) provides $500 toward costs, which are in excess of $4,000. Donations are appreciated, but not mandatory. Come end the work week with the end of JP's stay here at HWD and probably Washington State. There will be several horses of different breeds performing, to include Lyla the Lipizan, Lluvia the Quarter Horse, Shadow the flashy Polish Arabian and D'Artagnan the Morgan. Riders will include Ruben and family members.
Enjoy the show, eat some barbeque, visit with friends and listen to the music and warm yourself by the bon fire as we say farewell and good luck to JP and Ruben as they go to represent Washington State in the Midwest Mustang Makeover. Admision is free however, donations are accepted. There will be a raffle and more fun and games.
