A few of the staff from Black Mountain Ranch will be seeing this film next weekend at the Boulder International Film Festival. Tickets are still available for purchase on their website for its screening at Boulder High School.
Each summer, the federal government rounds up thousands of wild horses for relocation. A lucky 100 of them are given to 100 trainers, who have 100 days to ready the animals—which have never experienced human contact—to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge. This intimate film follows a handful of the men and women trainers as they work with their horses. What starts as a cautious, fearful relationship evolves slowly and magically into a powerful bond as intuitive and telepathic as any love affair. How many of these remarkably diverse humans and horses will actually succeed at this seemingly impossible task? And what will they learn about themselves?
Here is the trailer from the documentary that is set to be show in multiple areas across the United States. To get the most up to date information on showings, check out their Facebook Page.
Hope you can join our discussion and catch a screening near your hometown. We will be sure to follow up with a review!
