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

I laughed, I cried, I loved it...
4 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best people / horse film I have ever seen. The most amazing characters more than any documentary maker could ever ask for..I wanted them all to win both horse and trainer! Each story's was so unique and challenging. The variety of people willing to take and meet this challenge was extraordinary. The gentling and bonding between man and horse and woman and horse was beautiful to watch their unique connection was incredible. The fact that it was done in 100 days with wild hoses, was a lesson to all of us about the spirit of these stunning creatures. Each horse was a character of its own and was as equally unique as their human counterpart in the story.
