ABSTRACT
Mustang, a small, hardy horse that once ran wild in large herds on the western plains of North America. Mustangs were descended from horses, mainly of Arabian barb stock, brought from Spain, beginning with Hernando Cortez in the 16th century. Horses that escaped from Spanish owners thrived on the grassy plains, and numerous huge bands (called manadas) roamed the far west. Men who made a living catching and taming wild horses were called mustangers.
