Horses are chosen by hat-draw for each Extreme Mustang Makeover Participant. All trainers this year received a mare of approximately 3 years of age. Cindy's draw was a bay with a tiny white star on her forehead.

The mare was then sorted from her pen-mates for loading.

Once sorted and in the loading chute, BLM officials give shots and place the halters on. Here Cindy waits for her halter to be placed.
