White Mountain Wild Horse in Finals for America's Favorite Trail Horse


A wild horse gathered from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office’s White Mountain Herd Management Area (HMA) is in the top ten finals of the reality TV show 2012 America’s Favorite Trail Horse Competition airing tonight on HRTV at 6 p.m. MST. 

The now seven-year-old red roan mare was gathered in 2007 from the White Mountain HMA west of Highway 191 near Rock Springs, Wyo. First time mustang adopter Mary Miller Jordan of North Carolina, adopted the mare in May 2010 from the BLM Eastern States Piney Woods Maintenance Facility in Jackson, Miss. 

Three months after adopting the mare, now named Lindsay’s Faith, she and Miller Jordan made it to the finals in the Extreme Mustang Makeover (EMM). EMM is a competition allowing trainers a limited time to work with ungentled mustangs then compete in obstacle courses and riding expeditions. 

Miller Jordan and Lindsay’s Faith, contestant number 279, won episode nine of the reality TV show 2012 America’s Favorite Trail Horse Competition earning them a spot in the finals tonight. Ten horse and rider teams will compete to try to earn votes to be named "America's Favorite Trail Horse." You can watch the competition online at: http://www.actha.tv/afth/12. Voting will be open until Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. at www.ACTHA.tv. America’s Favorite Trail Horse is sponsored by the American Competitive Trail Horse Association. 

According to Miller Jordan, “As I trained Lindsay’s Faith I began to realize that Lindsay was really training me. The more I allowed myself to listen to Lindsay's subtle ways of communicating the more our partnership flourished.”
