Wild Horse Redemption

Feature Documentary


At a prison in the high desert foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, hardened criminals are taught the training methods of ‘horse whisperers’ and given 90 days to tame wild mustangs taken from the herd that roams government lands. Most of the inmates who volunteer for this unique rehabilitation program have never ridden a horse before. 


Failure means one more defeat for the inmate; success could save both lives.
