Saturday May 14, 2011 - Extreme Mustang Makeover Trail Challenge, Norco, CA

The competetion!
On Friday, May 13th, Wyatt was assigned hip number 13! He then took part in the rural trial challenge, which consisted of obstacles on a wilderness trail near the Ingalls Arena in Norco, CA. After that, the mustangs were inspected for body conditioning. At the end of the day Friday, Wyatt was sitting at number 13 in the pack.
Saturday, May 14th, began with the Urban Trail Challenge. The mustangs did a short obstacle course in the arena, then went out on the streets of Norco for a ride with stops and obstacles. Following that they did a short 'Wow' performance in the arena.
