Mustang Naming CeremonyLast year, Madeleine Pickens gifted two rescued, trained mustangs to SMU during a “Salute To The Mustangs” event hosted by her non-profit organization, Saving America’s Mustangs Foundation.

On Aug. 26, 2010, SMU and the Mustang football team named the horses in a ceremony at the Mustang statues just outside Moody Coliseum. The black mustang was named “Liberty,” while the brown mustang will be called “Justice.” Members of the Seminole Nation symbolically painted and blessed the horses.
