The Mustang movie

I am always skeptical when a horse movie comes out, I hope this one is good!
Robert Redford directed as he did the Horse Whisperer.

Here is the trailer:


And I seen this little clip today about the program here in NV which I think most people are familiar with and where @Knave got her horse Cash!

That does look good!!

I think about the program sometimes now. What a great idea! A horse teaches a person so much, and there is nothing to do but learn.

It was really neat to actually see the program. Everything was enthralling. The prisoners, the horses, the people in charge, the people bidding... one of these auctions we will have to go together; you really do need another ranch horse. ;)

Bruce Dern does not seem like a horseman. I just don't connect him to the ol' leathery horsemen I've seen.


I hope it doesn't suffer from the schmaltz factor too much. I loved "The Horse Whisperer", but not for its accuracy regarding horses. For it's romantic storyline, and characters.

There is a similar program here in WY.

I did a little work with a work release program for the state. Guys jokingly called working with the BLM horses as "Wyoming's death row." They had great stories about their first contacts with the horses. Seems most were urbanites and had no previous experience.

That alone makes the success of the program and the quality of the training more remarkable.

Hmm, some of those horses don't look like mustangs, I like the cinematography but not sure about it.

I read an interview in which Dern was asked, "What role in a movie he was most remember for." And Dern replied, " he was most remembered as the guy who killed John Wayne." ( movie The Cowboys.)

@boots , one of our mustangs at the barn is - I think - from the program in WY. The other one is from Nevada...

Looks promising! I really like Connie Britton so even if the horse part of it is "off" she should do a good job in her role.

A whole bunch of "mustangs" running on BLM ground don't look like mustangs. And I bet many of the extras in this movie are mutts and quarter horses.

fun fact. my friend (the whistleblower for the South dakota failed sanctuary where almost 1k abused mustangs were rescued) recognized a few of the horses in this move. they are using some rescued ISPMB horses. i cant wait to watch it just for that. after seeing the horror they came from to go from starvation to stardom is amazing.
