Sixteen mustangs, four men, one dream: to ride border to border, Mexico to Canada, up the spine of the American West. The documentary tracks four fresh-out-of-college buddies as they take on wild mustangs to be their trusted mounts, and set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Their wildness of spirit, in both man and horse, is quickly dwarfed by the wilderness they must navigate: a 3000-mile gauntlet that is equally indescribable and unforgiving.

Ordered the DVD from our local library on suggestion of a friend who knew I loved horses especially the Wild Mustangs and advocate for them being Wild and Free. Having been around horses all my life from a kid riding my little mare to our summer Bible camp to breaking, breeding, riding competition trail rides, barrell racing, doing 4-h exhibition at rodeos in our drill team on horseback I was so interested to see this film. I was not disappointed at all. Just wishing I was younger and could have gone with them! A well done film from beginning to the end. I was so impressed at the strength and durability of those wild mustangs under saddle on some really treacherous terrain! Gorgeous country they traveled, funny stories and incidents that happened along the trail. So neat to have had that elder man assist them too in housing and trailering them when necessary. Ben really planned the ride well, course unexpected issues happened but all in all its a film that deserved all the awards received for sure! Like looking back in time of the days when horseback was mode of travel and just totally awesome how well the young fella's eventually all got along, did for one another in spite of some issues at times, took such good care of those mustangs. A film kids should see for sure. Its definitely an inspiration that when there is the will to do, it can be done! The ending is so special. I jumped for joy too when they were so elated hitting the Canadian border. I felt like I rode it with them. See the film folks, you will want to own a mustang! What an awesome breed of horse. cudos to the whole story.
