Why Mustangs?

Why do we use mustangs in our program?  What characteristics do mustangs have that mirror human characteristics?

  1. They struggle daily with “who am I, where do I fit in?”  There is a daily pecking order in the herd structure.
  2. They are gregarious (social)…meaning relationship is absolutely essential!
  3. They have an ability to adapt and survive and will do so if necessary.
  4. They are perceptive to danger and fly from fear…they run to protect themselves.
  5. Their instincts govern their behavior and often they react rather than being proactive.
  6. Change requires relationship, effective communication, mutual understanding/respect, trust, and confidence.
