GEORGETOWN, Texas, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) proudly presents Clint Black in concert on Friday, Sept. 11 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Proceeds from the evening will directly benefit the 501 (c)(3) public, charitable, nonprofit organization and support its mission of successfully placing America's excess mustangs into adoptive homes.
With one of the most storied careers in modern music, Clint Black has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen gold and platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada, landed nearly two dozen major awards and nominations, including more than a dozen GRAMMY nominations, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Guests will not only enjoy the musical performance, but also have a chance to learn about MHF and its adoption and training programs.
Currently, the Bureau of Land Management estimates that more than 40,000 wild horses roam on managed rangelands in the western United States. Focused on raising awareness, providing education and increasing the adoption rate of BLM-housed mustangs, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has successfully placed over 5,500 mustangs into private care since 2007 through training and gentling programs, such as the Extreme Mustang Makeover, Mustang Million and the Trainer Incentive Program.

The benefit concert is held in conjunction with the annual Fort Worth Extreme Mustang Makeover, held Sept. 10-12 at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center. The weekend will include the Freestyle Finals performance and the adoption of the competing mustangs as well as untrained mustangs. A complete event schedule can be viewed at www.extrememustangmakeover.com.
