Have you seen this trailer?
It is for the movie, WILD HORSE WILD RIDE.
I saw the trailer…
And now I can’t wait to see the movie!
It is coming to my area for one night only on September 28th.
I’ll be there. For sure.
NOT YOUR REGULAR MUSTANG MAKEOVER MOVIE
I prepared myself to watch the trailer thinking I was going to see another power struggle or dominance thing happening.
But, I didn’t.
I saw partnership and respect.
I saw scared and really wild horses … coming to conclusions that the humans weren’t bad – in fact, they were pretty great. Great enough to make these wild creature bond and give.
You should watch the trailer… (click link)
The movie was shot during the prep and training phase of the 2009 Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge.
100 people had 100 days to bring these mustangs to the huge culmination show and national adoption.
The idea was to create adoptable citizens of these already rounded up and languishing mustangs who were sitting – unadoptable – in holding pens.
The cameras follow a few of the trainers – warts and all – throughout the 100 days – up to the show and eventual adoption…

Being a producer (HORSE AND MAN started as a TV series…), I see this film through my lens.
And, I gotta say, if the structure of the trailer is anything like the movie, it is right up my alley.
I loved how they strung the real person voiceovers to narrate the story.
I loved how they highlighted those special moments that only a horse lover would recognize.
I love how they were willing to show the fear, struggle and defeat that also comes with this kind of undertaking.
And, I liked how they shot it. Not fancy, expensive production value, but accurate and pretty.
I’m happily envious and wish to support them in their endeavor to showcase the mustangs and their people.
This movie is exactly the kind of project HORSE AND MAN would want to produce.
IS IT PLAYING IN YOUR CITY?
I think you could also email them and ask them how to have a viewing in your location…
