- The mustang horse is Mesa Grande’s mascot. The mustang is a strong, small horse that was the earliest and favorite horse used by the American cowboys. The mustangs are smaller than average horses, but have greater endurance. They are very smart horses and are highly valued by the cowboy, whose most precious possession in frontier days was his horse. A cowboy’s horse not only served as his means of transportation, but also was responsible for keeping him safe on often treacherous trails and was essential in helping him make a living as a cowhand.
