Dedication

It is amazing what can be accomplished with love, compassion, time, willingness, and motivation. Here is a great story that saved a horses life!

Meet Mustang No. 1236, now known as “Amira.”

126 days ago, Amira was wild—one of the BLM’s 46,000+ mustangs in holding waiting for adoption. The “U” in her brand marks Amira as a “3-striker,” meaning she was passed up for adoption—unwanted—three times by no fault of her own.

Mustang Maddy trained Amira for the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Mustang Magic competition, in which trainers have less than 130 days to train a wild mustang.

These competitions serve to showcase the trainability of America’s wild horses and raise awareness for the some 40,000 mustangs currently waiting in holding pens to be adopted. After the competition, the trained mustangs are auctioned off to the public to be put into caring homes.

Maddy and Amira captivated the sold-out audience with her freestyle performance, earning a standing ovation and the championship title. Maddy used the money she won in the competition to bid on Amira herself.

She was successful in adopting Amira and will be giving her a forever home. Amira will join Maddy and her team of trained mustangs to travel the country and raise awareness for the mustangs still awaiting adoption, as well as to educate the public on equine behavior and communication techniques to achieve more successful horse-human relationships.

In their fairytale freestyle performance, Madison showcased the incredible talents of Amira—a horse once cast off and considered unwanted. The lesson of Mustang Maddy and the amazing Amira ring true: there is greatness in us all if we choose to see the beauty within.
