In 2012, eventing competitor and trainer Elisa Wallace entered a Mustang Makeover competition on a whim at the encouragement of a friend. Elisa won the competition and purchased her mustang, and she was hooked! In January 2015 she participated in the Magic Makeover where they placed 4th. Although she wasn't planning on purchasing her, their bond and Hwin's knack for eventing after only 6 weeks of training sealed the deal. Currently competing at the Preliminary level, Elisa is excited to see how far she and Hwin can go in the eventing world which is dominated by Sport Horses and Thoroughbreds. Why mustangs? Elisa says: "They are intelligent, strong, and athletic, with a huge heart. Those are your main ingredients that make a wonderful event horse."
