Mustang Maddy

A lifetime equestrienne, Madison Shambaugh’s world was rocked when she encountered her first mustang in 2013. Madison went on to become a 3x Extreme Mustang Makeover freestyle champion with her signature bridleless performances and was named the 2015 Extreme Mustang Makeover Fan Favorite, Rookie Champion, and Young Guns Champion. 
Most recently, she earned the the 2017 Mustang Magic Champion title with her three-strike mustang mare, Amira, whom she started riding with no saddle or bridle. 
Captivated by their heart, mind, and innate freedom, “Mustang Maddy” has made it her life’s mission to promote and showcase the mustang while raising awareness for the plight of America’s wild horses.
Together with her liberty team of formerly wild mustangs– and accompanied by a unique herd of zebras– Madison travels the country advocate for wild horses and to share her training methods for all horses. Wherever she goes, Maddy’s message rings true: every horse has a potential for greatness; it is up to us to help them reveal it.
