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

Beautiful, touching and inspiring:)
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I confess. I am an extreme horse lover and advocate who has been involved in equine activity for most of my life. So it's not a surprise that I absolutely loved this documentary. However, I sat next to a group that weren't fellow horse lovers and they felt the same way! The documentary not only shows the bond the trainers and horses develop, but it takes you on the journey with the trainers that fall in love with these amazing animals. Wylene, the most animated trainer, kept the documentary light when it became intense and heart-wrenching as did the cynical friends of Melissa. A beautifully shot and inspiring documentary about an incredible foundation saving America's wild mustangs! This is a documentary that I hope to see again!
