Rance Butler and Rango finish 7th at Mustang Makeover!


Rance Butler and his adopted Mustang Rango took top 10 honors finishing 7th in the Idols Division of the nationally televised Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover in Fort Worth Texas on September 17th. Competing in classes such as Reining, Trail, Working Cow Horse and an Ultimate Freestyle Routine, Rance and Rango finished top 10 in every class and top 5 in Working Cow Horse leading up to their final 7th place finish. Cash and prizes for the pair totaled over $2000.

This past April 200 wild Bureau of Land Management Mustangs were adopted out in an online auction specifically for the purpose of this event. In the event the adopters had 100 days to halter break and train a Wild Mustang and have it physically and mentally ready for the competition. Rance was quoted as saying what makes this so special is Rango was one of the one’s that did not get adopted in the initial auction. “We didn’t get any of the one’s we had picked out initially that were bigger horses, said Rance, so we took a chance on this guy even though we initially would not have picked him out as he looked harder to handle on the video than many of the others.” According to Rance he lived up to how he looked online, “We got him home and it was a challenge. He is always super smart and didn’t ever do anything silly to hurt himself but he’s not a pet.”
