Non-profit rides 5,000 miles cross-country on horseback to raise awareness about Mustangs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The non-profit, Mustang Discovery Foundation, is riding 5,000 miles across the U.S. to raise awareness about Mustang adoption. Thursday, they stopped in Colorado Springs.

Organizers rode from Delaware to Colorado Springs and will continue to Utah, Nevada, and California, ending in San Francisco in November. Its mission is to educate people on the 50,000 Mustangs in holding pens across the nation.

While Mustangs are wild, they can be domesticated by trainers, like Lisanne Fear. The founder of the Mustang Discovery Ride, Fear is in charge of the journey.

She's ridden the horses all 5,000 miles, over mountains, through rivers, snow, even on the side of the highway.

Her team consists of three Mustang horses, a burro, and two dogs. They all work in perfect harmony to safely and efficiently make the trek.

You can meet the Mustangs Friday in Castle Rock from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 160 Yucca Hills Road.
