Dates: June 16-18, July 21-23, August 25-27, September 22-24
Join us for our 2017 Mustang Mentorship Series featuring local Colorado Mustang Trainers Jessica Dabkowski, Cayla Stone and our very own Head Trainer Stephanie Linsley! This clinic is a rare opportunity to learn a crucial stage of equine development from three of the best Colorado has to offer. Each clinician works almost exclusively with Mustangs and have successfully competed at multiple Extreme Mustang Makeovers. You won’t want to miss learning from the three of them in one place!
Learn how to break down the gentling process from wild to haltered in a way that keeps both horse and human safe. We will be working with Mustangs of varying personality types or you have the option to bring your own Mustang. Each participant will have the opportunity to view demonstrations then practice the material under close supervision of one of our Master Mustang Mentors. Participants will receive the feedback they need to improve immensely in a short period of time.
Attend the entire series or join us for a specific area of interest, as each one will be focused on something different that you can add to your training toolbox. Overnight accommodations at the sanctuary amongst our wild herds are available.

Come and spend some time up close and personal with the mustangs and burros of the Great Escape, while exploring the diverse topography of a very unique location on the Eastern Plains!

Our tours are by appointment only, so be sure to reserve your spot today, as they fill quickly. The proceeds from our tours go straight back to the horses. Go to our website
