Cat Zimmerman is a 19 year old mustang trainer located in North Central Florida. Cat trains horses full-time out of her 501c3 Non-Profit Mustang Rescue and Training facility; taking in client horses, gentling mustangs and finding them homes, and helping rehabilitate rescues.
Cat competes in the Extreme Mustang Makeover program annually, and before the age of 18, had earned 6 Championship titles with her 100-day competition mustangs. She travels the country with her team of previously wild mustangs, performing liberty freestyle routines at various Expos and Fairs to promote the trainability of the breed.
Cat’s mission and passion is to promote the trainability of the American Mustang, and bring awareness to the breed, but she also spends time educating the public on liberty training and mustang gentling through lessons, clinics, and an online membership platform.

Liberty training is a great thing within the horse industry, it gives you a chance to grow with your horse, strengthen communication, clarity, provide engagement, and grow your relationship.
