Horse Whisperer Pays Visit to Southwest Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

INDIAHOMA, Okla_Breaking a wild mustang isn't for the faint of heart, but for horse whisperer Wylene Wilson it's a way of life.

She's a rising star in the horse training world having won two championships at the National Extreme Mustang Makeover competition, she was even heavily featured in a popular documentary about the competition, and on Saturday she was in Indiahoma giving a hands-on clinic for some lucky riders right here in our backyard.

Wylene Wilson knows a thing or two about training a mustang

"I know what I'm doing. I've had a lot of experience with wild horses, with horses that aren't trained, and I fit really well into this mold, " said Wilson.

She's ridden all her life, but after a friend encouraged her to enter the Extreme Mustang Makeover, where she had only 100 days to break and train a brand new wild mustang, she really found her niche.

"I really love the people I've met. I love the association, and I absolutely love the horses. So it's just a good fit. It's like a trifecta, " Wilson explained.

Since winning that competition twice and starring in a documentary she's become a star in the training world, but she's not sitting on her laurels.

She still travels every week to a different place to teach all kinds of riders her special techniques.

"I like helping the back yard people. I want people who are hungry and the film's helped with that, " said Wilson.

Wilson said her mom instilled in her a can-do attitude, and that's what she brings to the table. She said what motivates her to keep doing these clinics is showing people they can conquer their fears and so much more, but she makes sure they do it all while having fun.

"I'm here to push people out of their comfort zones. Kind of to be the drill sergeant but at the same time to be their friend. And to be genuine with them. And if they really have a problem I help them to fix that problem, " said Wilson.

She's not bashful about her success. And she's aware the documentary has helped her reach new heights, but she says it's important for her to remain approachable and humble.

"It's not about money. It's about creating relationships and helping people accomplish their dreams, " said Wilson.
