Question Wild Horse, Wild Ride

So I was looking around on netflix and this documentary came up called "Wild Horse, Wild Ride." It is about the Horse and Burro association and a contest they do to re-home mustangs. It was a really cool documentary and I was curious if anyone else had watched it and what you thought

I watched it a couple days ago too!! Very very cool!! I really enjoyed it, a couple people on there REALLY frustrated me though, but I thought it was great that they showed a range of experience levels and the problems they encountered along the way. I LOVED the 2 brothers they followed, really amazingly talented horsemen, and you could tell they were all about the horse and really put 100% into the horses and what they were doing. Just awesome.

I'd definitely recommend watching it!

Yup. In fact the older couple that did it George and evelyn..from my home town lol

It was definitely interesting seeing all the different training methods.

And the two brothers were awesome. I think they've done it like 3 times now?

*Insert something witty*

I agree that the 2 brothers were amazing! I was watching it with my husband and he was even super impressed by them :) I was saying if we ever get property I would so be interested in this even though I live way out in Oregon ha ha

I've never seen this but did read an article the other day about it.

They seem to have a prison program where they have the inmates work on breaking and training the horses and then auction them off.

My guy came from the WHIP (Wild Horse Inmate Program) where they use Clinton Anderson techniques. Even though he was captured older at the age of 6, it really put a good foundation on him.
I also thought the Wild Horse, Wild Ride was a good documentary!

My lifelong best friend and I work as working students at the same farm and have plans to start our own farm business after college. This will definitely be on the to-do list.
