Storyline

A handful of unforgettable characters set out on a 100-day quest to tame a totally wild mustang for a Texas competition in this stunning and poignant documentary. Among them: Charles, a Navajo grandfather out to re-capture his youth; George, a grizzled cowboy with a stubborn streak; and Wylene, a blond beauty with a theatrical flare and a nerve of steel. In three months, man and horse must transform from scared strangers to close companions. It won't be an easy journey. Bones and egos will take a beating. Fear and frustration will weed many out. But those who prevail may find themselves desperately vying to keep their horses when they ultimately all go up for adoption at a public auction. Written by Anonymous

Mustangs Aren't So Scary
9 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I do not think of myself as much of a horse person, I found this documentary incredibly enjoyable from start to finish. Directors Dawson and Gricus present the Extreme Mustang Makeover in a positive and uplifting light that transcends many other equine films out there. My favorite part of the documentary was its focus on the journey of the relationships between the trainers and their mustangs from Day 1 to Day 100. As someone who has had various pets, to see the bond between horse and human was definitely worth cherishing. Overall, I really loved this movie and I can't wait to get a chance to see it again. A definite recommendation to all!
