mustanger

   A man who hunted mustangs for gain or for sport. Interestingly, Santamaría references a similar term in Mexican Spanish, mus-tanguero, which he defines as a name given in northern Mexico and southern parts of the United States to hunters of wild horses on the open prairies. In this case, Spanish has reborrowed the English form and its accompanying meaning. Alternate terms: mustang hunter, mustang runner.
