Wild Horse Wild Ride (Full Doc) Mustang Makeover Challenge

October 22, 2019


– I GOT MY FIRST HORSE
WHEN I WAS ABOUT 10 OR 12. ROY ROGERS AND GENE AUTRY
WERE MY HEROES. I THINK
IF YOU’RE A TRUE HORSEMAN, THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS. [metal clanging]
– THERE IT GOES. ALL RIGHT, YOU READY? LET’S GO GET ‘EM. [chuckles] – YOU GET TO TAKE A WILD HORSE AND BOND WITH HIM AND GET HIM
TO WHERE YOU CAN RIDE HIM. IT JUST DOESN’T
GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT. [dog barking] [bright acoustic guitar music] ♪ ♪ – I JUST WANT ONE THAT’S KIND OF EASYGOING
AND GENTLE AND… – WELL, HE’S NOT GONNA
BE GENTLE. I GOT NEWS FOR YOU. – WELL, GENTLE TEMPERAMENT,
I GUESS, I MEAN. YEAH. – I JUST HOPE THAT THEY’RE NOT
THE LITTLE TINY ONES. I HOPE THEY’RE THE BIGGER ONES. – YEAH. – I LIKE A BIG HORSE. – YOU GET A BIG ONE. I’LL TAKE A TINY ONE. [relaxing instrumental music] ♪ ♪ – HERE IT IS. [horses neighing] – ALL RIGHT. – OKAY. – HERE, LET ME GIVE YOU YOURS,
EVELYN. – ALL RIGHTY. – GIVE ME A BETTER ONE
THAN YOU GAVE HER. 8108. WELL, THE DEAL IS,
AND THEY MAKE IT CLEAR, YOU GET WHAT YOU GET. IT’S LUCK OF THE DRAW. AND SO YOU DO WITH
WHAT YOU GOT. – BYE, KATE.
OH, MY GOSH. TRYING TO CLIMB THE SIDE OF IT. – I THINK WE’VE COME
FOR THE BEAR– THE BLACK. – COULD BE. – JUST GIVE IT A SECOND
BEFORE YOU START– – IT’S ALL RIGHT.
IT’S ALL RIGHT. IT’S OKAY. IT’S OKAY.
YOU’RE ALL RIGHT. YOU’RE ALL RIGHT.
YEAH. SMELL ME.
SEE, I AIN’T BAD. HEY, SEE, HE’S–
HE’S SMELLING MY HAND. – YEAH, YEAH, THAT’S GOOD.
– THAT’S A GOOD SIGN. – MM-HMM.
– GOOD SIGN. NOBODY’S GONNA HURT YOU. HEY, YEAH, WE’RE GONNA
GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER. HE’S SCARED TO DEATH. HE’S A LITTLE SMALL. THAT’S ALL RIGHT. – HERE HE COMES. OH, MY GOSH. [gasps]
OH, MY GOSH. HE’S BEAUTIFUL.
OH, MY GOD. [laughs] HEY, WILLIE. BOY, HE’S A BIG’UN. – SHE GOT THE BIG ONE.
I GOT THE LITTLE ONE. – [laughs]
ALL RIGHT. – I OUTWEIGH MY HORSE.
– [laughs] YOU OUTWEIGH YOUR HORSE.
[laughs] – THESE WILL BE WAYLON
AND WILLIE. – WAYLON AND WILLIE,
THAT’S A GOOD COMBINATION. – IT’S ALL RIGHT, WAYLON. – Y’ALL READY? – WE HOPE THAT
IN ABOUT 90 DAYS, THESE GUYS WILL BE STERLING EXAMPLES
OF FINE RIDING HORSES. [laughs] WE’LL TAKE ‘EM TO FORT WORTH AND JUST DAZZLE
THE HORSE WORLD. [chuckles] – HAVE GOALS FOR ONE DAY.
– OKAY. – AND DON’T TRY TO DO
TOO MANY THINGS AT ONCE. JUST HAVE ONE GOAL, AND WHEN HE MEETS THAT GOAL,
THAT’S IT. THAT’LL BE DONE. – I’D LIKE TO TOUCH HIM.
– [laughs] – THAT WOULD BE A GOOD GOAL. [horse neighs] I’VE NEVER DONE
ANY OF THIS STUFF BEFORE. I’D JUST BEEN BASING IT ON,
YOU KNOW, WHAT I’VE READ. I ACTUALLY THINK
THAT’S THE POINT. I THINK THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE
THIS KIND OF PROGRAM. I THINK THAT THEY WANT TO SHOW THAT, LIKE, A REAL PERSON
CAN REALLY DO IT. GOOD BOY. – I THOUGHT SHE WAS CRAZY. I MEAN, I REALLY DID.
I THOUGHT SHE WAS CRAZY. YOU UNDERSTAND
HE’S, LIKE, REALLY WILD. I MEAN, LIKE, CRAZY WILD. SHE’S LIKE,
“OH, THEY WON’T BE THAT BAD.” I’M LIKE,
“OKAY. I DON’T THINK SO. BUT OKAY.” – GET.
[clicks teeth] GO.
HE WON’T RUN. OH, LET’S GO. – USUALLY, WHEN YOU’RE TRAINING
YOUR FIRST HORSE, IT’S A YEARLING THAT YOU THEN TRAINED UP
AS A TWO-YEAR-OLD, AND THEN YOU BREAK IT. AND TO START WITH A MUSTANG IS SORT OF LIKE STARTING OUT
YOUR SINGING CAREER SINGING OPERA. – HE’S TRYING TO IGNORE ME. I’M DOING THIS BECAUSE I THINK
IT’S A GOOD CAUSE. I JUST HOPE THAT I LEARN A LOT, AND I WANT THE HORSE
TO GO TO A GOOD HOME. – WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST FEARS
GOING AHEAD? – BEING ABLE
TO GET ON THE HORSE. BEING ABLE TO, YOU KNOW,
CONTACT THE HORSE, WALK THE HORSE,
LEAD THE HORSE. I MIGHT COME BACK LATER
AND TRY AGAIN. GIVE HIM SOME TIME. AND THEN, COME BACK
IN THE MORNING AND TRY AGAIN. [horse neighs] [peaceful acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – [sighs] [squeaky kisses] [mumbling] – [squeaky kisses] [squeaky kisses] – YEAH. SO HE’S STILL TRYING
TO FEEL US OUT AND WHAT’S GOING ON, UM, ‘CAUSE HIS WORLD
LITERALLY TURNED 180 DEGREES FROM WHERE IT WAS, LIKE, NOT EVEN,
YOU KNOW, 72 HOURS AGO. HIS WORLD’S
BASICALLY BEEN ROCKED. SO HE PROBABLY DOESN’T
LIKE PEOPLE TOO MUCH. [squeaky kisses] [squeaky kisses] OOH. [sighs] IT’S ABOUT DEVELOPING
THE TRUST, AND RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING
WHEN YOU GET ‘EM, AND ESPECIALLY,
THEY’RE SO WILD, AND THEY’RE GONNA BE
TEARING AROUND, AND IT’S TOUGH TO GET
THAT KIND OF COMMUNICATION. A LOT OF IT’S BODY LANGUAGE. MOVE. MOVE. WHOA. [squeaky kisses] – OOH, THERE’S A STOP. GOOD BOY. WHOA. WHOA. THERE IT IS. – I HAD NO EXPERIENCE AT ALL
IN HORSE TRAINING OR… I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO. NIK AND I
WOULD JUST SIT IN THE FIELD, AND WE’D JUST SIT THERE
AND WATCH BODY LANGUAGE… – [squeaky kisses] – AND THEN COPY THEM. THAT’S MOSTLY WHAT WE’RE GETTING
OUR EDUCATIONS FROM, IS FROM THE HORSE. LIKE, HOW WOULD A HORSE
APPROACH A SCARY OBJECT? AND WHAT THAT HORSE WOULD DO, WOULD JUST WALK BACK AND FORTH
BETWEEN THAT OBJECT UNTIL HE GOT COMFORTABLE
WITH IT AND APPROACH IT. [quietly]
GOT TO TRUST ME. I TRUST YOU. THANK YOU. FIRST ACTUAL SCRATCH. HE’S SHOWING HIS BRAVERY. HE’S SHOWING HIS COURAGE. HE’S SHOWING HIMSELF. THAT’S WHAT I LIKE TO SEE. HE’S NOT HIDING ANYTHING. [horse chuffing] I’M SHOCKED AT HOW FAST
I AM GETTING CLOSE TO HIM. HI. THERE YA GO. [horse chuffing] [birds chirping] [relaxed acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – DON’T EVER SAY
YOU TRUST ONE OF THESE HORSES UNTIL THE DAY
YOU REALLY TRUST THEM. [gate squeaks loudly] RIGHT, COMANCHE? COME HERE, BUDDY. COME ON. SETTLE DOWN. WHEN I FIRST BROUGHT HIM IN
SATURDAY NIGHT, AND I REALLY SAID
THAT HE’S THE KIND OF HORSE THAT WILL CHALLENGE YOU. SO MONDAY MORNING, I WENT OUT THERE
EARLY IN THE MORNING, AND I STARTED
TO FIGURING HIM OUT. THAT’S WHEN HE CHARGED ME. [horse neighs] – IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME
SINCE I’VE SEEN A HORSE DO THAT. [horse chuffing] HE’S LIKE– DOESN’T WANT TO BE
CLOSE TO HUMANS OR SOMETHING. – WOULD YOU GO ANYWHERE NEAR
CHARLES’ HORSE? – NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. [gate clanging] – HE’S STILL ON THE JUMPY SIDE. BUT AFTER
HE GETS HIMSELF QUIET, THEN HE’S GONNA BE
MY BEST FRIEND. HE’S GOT HIS TERRITORY.
I’VE GOT MY TERRITORY. SO IN SOME WAY, HE’S GONNA INVITE ME
INTO HIS TERRITORY. THAT’S THE TIME
WHEN I’M GONNA SAY, “OKAY, HE’S TRUSTING ME.” I WAS RAISED AROUND HERE. WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, I DIDN’T HAVE ANY SIBLINGS
THAT WERE THE SAME AGE AS ME. AND MY MOM HAD SOME SHEEP,
COWS, AND HORSES. EVERY MORNING, SHE TOLD ME
TO GO GET THE HORSES. SO I STARTED
COMMUNICATING WITH HORSES. WHEN I WAS YOUNG,
IT WAS DIFFERENT. IT DON’T MATTER
HOW OLD IT IS, HOW FAST IT IS; I COULD GET ON ANYTHING. THIS COMPETITION MEANS
A WHOLE LOT OF THINGS TO ME. I WANT TO CHALLENGE MYSELF, AND I WANT TO SHOW MYSELF THAT I AM STILL CAPABLE
OF DOING. EVEN THOUGH
I’M ACHING HERE AND THERE, BUT I’M STILL YOUNG AT HEART. HE’S GONNA TURN OUT
PRETTY GOOD. THAT’S IF I CAN GET ON. [laughs] THAT’S IF HE CAN LET ME
GET ON. [bright acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – OUT THERE,
IF THEY SAY “INDIAN,” THEY THINK
WE’RE STILL ON BUCKSKINS. WE’RE STILL WALKING AROUND
OUT THERE IN THE WILD. BASICALLY,
WE’RE LIVING THE SAME LIFE, BUT WE’RE JUST
ON THE RESERVATION, THAT’S ALL. IT’S JUST A CHALLENGE, I THINK. THAT’S MAINLY JUST TO SHOW THAT I’M COMING
FROM THE RESERVATION, AND I CAN DO THE SAME AMOUNT
OF THINGS ANYBODY CAN DO. SO I JUST WANT
TO SHOW THAT TO THIS HORSEY. IT’S ALL I WANT TO DO. THE HARDEST PART
IS GETTING THEM TO TRUST YOU, GETTING THEM TO BE YOUR FRIEND. IF I RELAX,
THE HORSE WILL RELAX. IF YOU THINK
YOU’RE GONNA MUSCLE A MUSTANG AND GO IN THERE
AND BE ALL MACHO TO IT, IT’S GONNA DO THE SAME THING
BACK TO YOU. [peaceful instrumental music] – OKAY, CLOSE IT. – IF YOU NOTICE, THE LITTLE ONE
HIDES BEHIND THE BIG’UN. [chuckles] – THE MUSTANG MAKEOVER
COMPETITION IS… I GUESS IT BRINGS OUT
THE COMPETITIVE SPIRIT IN US. WE WANT TO COMPETE,
AND WE WANT TO WIN. I’M GETTING OLDER. I KNOW I’VE GOT A LIMITED
NUMBER OF YEARS TO DO THIS. SO I WANT THIS
TO BE A GOOD ONE. – WHOA.
IT’S OKAY. YOU’RE ALL RIGHT. – I’M GETTING HIM TO MOVE
THE WAY I WANT HIM TO MOVE, RATHER THAN THE WAY
HE WANTS TO MOVE. I MAKE HIM GO DIRECTIONS I PICK,
NOT WHAT HE PICKS. WHOA. WHOA.
WHOA. WE’RE A LITTLE OLDER
THAN MOST PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DO THIS. AND, UM,
WE REALIZE THAT– THAT WE DON’T HAVE
THE SAME BALANCE AND THE SAME RES–RESPONSES AND REACTIONS
THAT WE HAD THAT– SO WE HAVE TO MAKE UP FOR IT BY BEING CAREFUL
AND USING A LITTLE WISDOM. COME ON, BIG GUY.
LET’S GO. THERE WE GO. OKAY, GET OVER. HUP! HUP! HUT! WE MIGHT OUGHT TO GO OUT
FOR A MINUTE. – SO THE SMALLER ONE’S
SPOOKIER. HE’S A LITTLE MORE UNSURE. AND I THINK HE’S GOT MORE FEAR
THAN THE BLACK ONE. [gate rattling loudly]
OH. BACK OFF.
– BETTER TAKE– TAKE PRESSURE OFF OF HIM. HE’S GONNA GO THROUGH IT. [gate clinking] HE’S A LOT WILDER. I THINK THE LITTLE GUY
IS GONNA BE QUITE A CHALLENGE, MORE SO
THAN I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT. WAYLON IS GONNA HAVE TO HAVE A LOT MORE JUST “SIT THERE
AND TALK TO HIM” TIME BEFORE WE START CHASING HIM
AROUND IN THE ROUND PEN, ‘CAUSE HE’S JUST
TOO APPREHENSIVE RIGHT NOW. HE’LL HURT HIMSELF OR ME,
ONE OF THE TWO. HE’LL FIND OUT
THAT WHEN HE’S TOUCHED, IT’S A GOOD THING,
NOT A BAD THING. BUT YOU GOT TO GET
TO THAT POINT. AND THAT’S WHERE PATIENCE
COMES IN, WHICH I’M NOT
OVERLY LOADED WITH. AND SO I’LL COUNT ON EVELYN
TO HELP ME WITH THAT PART. [bright acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – SMALL CIRCLES. NOW WANT TO STOP. FACE TO ME. LET’S SEE IF I CAN GET ON. [hisses] HE TRIED TO BITE ME. I’M GOING TO BEND HIS NECK
TO THE OTHER SIDE AND HOLD HIM. NOW I CAN JUMP. TRY TO GET ON– I TRY AND PAT HIS… HIS FRONT. I ENJOY
WHAT I DO WITH HORSES. AND MOM SAY, “DO YOU BREATHE IN HORSES
AND DREAM IN HORSES?” AND IT’S THE WAY I AM. TEACH HIM SLOW. HAVE TO BE VERY SENSITIVE
WITH YOUR HANDS, NOT GET TOO HARD. IF HE FOLLOW ME. SEE, RIGHT THERE,
HE DID A NICE TURN. [horse chuffing] PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS
TO WORK THESE HORSES. IN THREE MONTHS,
YOU HAVE TO DO A LOT. IT TAKES SOME TIME. THERE.
THAT’S COMING. AND RELEASE IT. HE WILL UNDERSTAND IN A MINUTE
WHAT I WANT–LOOKING FOR. NOW, I WANT TO TURN HIM. STOP. – I WILL SAY IT. EVERYBODY HAS A GIFT, BUT HIS GIFT,
WORKING WITH HORSES, I THINK THAT’S GREAT. IT’S HARD TO FIND PEOPLE
WITH THE KIND OF SKILLS TO GO FROM TOTALLY WILD HORSE
TO MAKE A SUBMISSIVE HORSE. IT’S HARD,
BUT IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE. AND THE KEY?
PATIENCE. – THIS IS GOOD FOR TODAY. BUT I THINK, YOU KNOW,
HE’S DOING GOOD. [horse chuffing] IT’S SOMETHING
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND. IT’S LIKE A GIFT, YOUR GIFT FROM GOD. HE’S A SMART HORSE. WE DOING GOOD.
WE DOING… I’M HAPPY
BECAUSE HE RESPONDS TO ME. AND I WANT TO SEE HIM HAPPY TOO. [bright acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ [horse whinnies] – WELL, I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN
SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL THAT I WAS ALWAYS DESTINED
FOR SOMETHING GREAT. I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT OR WHY. I JUST ALWAYS HAD
THIS INNER FEELING LIKE, “YOU KNOW WHAT?
I’M GONNA BE SOMETHING AMAZING.” WHOA.
[squeals] I’VE ALWAYS SAID, “I’M A DAREDEVIL
WITH A BIG SMILE.” ANYTIME I WOULD DO ANYTHING
AS A KID, IT WAS NEVER HARD ENOUGH
FOR ME. YOU KNOW, I WAS ALWAYS
THAT EVEL KNIEVEL, “I’M NOT SCARED.” [rooster crowing] I PICKED HIM UP ON SATURDAY. AND THEN MONDAY MORNING,
I RODE HIM. AND THEN BY THE THIRD RIDE, WE WERE RIDING DOWN THE ROAD
IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA. WE WALKED THROUGH
THE TACO BELL DRIVE-THROUGH, CROSSING CROSSWALKS. AND HE JUST…
♪ DOO-DEE ♪ I MEAN, HE’S JUST MELLOW… CONSIDERING HE’S A MUSTANG. YOU KNOW,
“OOH, HE’S A MUSTANG. “THAT MEANS HE’S WILD, “AND HE REARS UP
ON HIS HIND LEGS, AND HE EATS CHILDREN
FOR BREAKFAST.” BUT HE’S NOT.
HE’S JUST QUIET AND GENTLE. YOU KNOW?
[chuckles] OKAY, HOLD ON. WELL, HEY, HOLD ON.
YOU’RE GONNA FREAK OUT. [delicate instrumental music] ♪ ♪ [laughs] AGH, THAT WASN’T GOOD. [squeals] IT WAS PERFECT. IF YOU RUN,
IT’S JUST GONNA FOLLOW YOU. SO YOU HAVE TO… MY SIGNATURE THING
THAT I’M KNOWN FOR IS STANDING UP ON A HORSE AND STEPPING OFF OF A HORSE WHEN A HORSE
IS MOVING FULL-SPEED. I LIKE TO DO THAT. I ALSO LIKE TO SWING UP
ON HORSES. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T SWING UP
ON HORSES, ESPECIALLY A WOMAN. MOST GIRLS DON’T. UM, I LIKE TO DO ANYTHING
THAT MAKES YOU GO, “WOW. HOW DID YOU TEACH THAT HORSE
TO DO THAT?” LIKE THE
TOUCH-ON-THE-NECK STOP. REALLY, WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO
AND WHAT I’VE LEARNED DOING ALL OF THESE COMPETITIONS
WITH THE MUSTANG MAKEOVERS IS, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN
ABOUT THE HORSE AND THAT WE ALL JUST WANT TO HELP THESE HORSES
GET GREAT HOMES. [sentimental string music] ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ – COME HERE. – YEAH. – I’M JUST GONNA
PET YOUR FACE. I JUST WANT TO TOUCH
YOUR FACE. IT’S OKAY. – I ALWAYS SAY, “NEVER FALL IN LOVE
WITH A HORSE,” BUT I THINK I’M GONNA
FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS HORSE. [peaceful acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – I USUALLY
AM PRETTY CAREFUL ABOUT TALKING ABOUT WHAT I DO
AND THE LEVEL OF MY EDUCATION. AND THEN, OF COURSE,
THIS ONLY CAN OCCUR WHEN THINGS ARE
AT EQUILIBRIUM. SO KEEP THAT IN MIND TOO. I THINK, WHEN YOU THINK–
YOU HEAR PhD ENGINEER, YOU HAVE A CERTAIN STEREOTYPE
IN YOUR MIND. AND I DON’T THINK I FIT
THAT STEREOTYPE VERY WELL. BUT MY PhD
IS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, AND MY BACHELOR’S OF SCIENCE IS
ALSO IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING. SO WE’VE LIMITED
OUR NUMBER OF VARIABLES TO JUST A FRACTION. AND THEN I HAVE
A COURSEWORK MASTERS, WHICH IS
LIKE A MASTER’S OF SCIENCE IN JUST GENERAL ENGINEERING. AND THE DYNAMIC
BETWEEN MY DAY AND MY EVENING IS JUST–
IT’S LIKE TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS. – HE’S TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE
OF YOU. [horse chuffing] HE’S NOT WATCHING YOU AT ALL. – THE HORSE
IS NOWHERE NEAR LEADABLE YET. HE’S STILL WILD, FOR SURE. HE’S STILL A WILD ANIMAL. – SHE’S A PERFECTIONIST. MOST ACADEMICS ARE. – WELL, MOST ENGINEERS ARE.
– MOST ENGINEERS ARE. – WELL, SHE’S USED TO
ALWAYS GETTING WHAT SHE WANTS. I MEAN–
– AND BEING PERFECT. AND BEING GOOD AT IT. – KEEP GOING.
JUST BE PATIENT. HE’S TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
WHAT YOU WANT. KEEP GOING. IT’S OKAY, JUST–
EASY, EASY, GIRL. – WOW. I’M NOT LIKING THIS. – [laughs]
I KNOW. HE’S JUST BEING AGGRESSIVE. – HE’S JUST A LITTLE
MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN I WAS HOPING FOR. – IF SHE LISTENS TO CAREEN, IF SHE JUST–
IF SHE JUST KIND OF… – IS SHE GONNA DO THAT? – I DON’T KNOW. [horse chuffing] – HI. HI. [murmuring] A LOT OF NOISE. – I THINK THAT–
I THINK IT’LL BE– I THINK THAT–I THINK… IF SHE AT LEAST
LISTENS TO CAREEN AND WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY, I THINK THAT
THEY’LL BE ABLE TO COME OUT OF IT IN ONE PIECE. – I DON’T KNOW.
I MEAN, WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO? IT’S JUST FRUSTRATING. IT MAKES, YOU KNOW– MAYBE SOMEBODY MORE EXPERIENCED
BELONGS WITH A HORSE LIKE THIS. [horse whinnies] – IT’S THE WAY, YOU KNOW,
YOU HAVE TO WORK ON. YOU HAVE TO JUST
TAKE YOUR TIME, AND YOU READ, FIRST,
THE PERSONALITY. I WANT TO STOP HIM. [whip cracks]
[horse whinnies] THERE. GOING TO WORK WITH HIS FEET. LIKE NOW…NOW. ONCE AND STOP. IT’S LIKE IF YOU’RE
GOING TO BALLET, YOU NEED TO LEARN SLOW,
IN STEPS. AND SOON DO YOU KNOW HOW
TO MANEUVER, CONTROL YOUR FEET, YOU CAN BUILD YOUR SPEED. IT’S ALMOST THE SAME THING
WITH HORSES. SO I DON’T WANT TO MAKE
MY HORSE SAD, BUT I HAVE TO MAKE
HE TO LEARN THIS. I’M NOT FORCING THE HORSE.
I’M JUST TEACHING HIM. BE CALM. [delicate instrumental music] ♪ ♪ I’M GOING TO HELP HIM
TO MAKE HIM LAY DOWN. BE GOOD. BE GOOD. BE GOOD. – HE’S SPECIAL FOR US. HE’S A GOOD-LOOKING HORSE AND VERY SMART. AND ALL–PRETTY MUCH ALL
OUR BROTHERS, WE’RE COMPADRES. SO COMPADRES IS A MEAN, LIKE,
A GOD… – GOD FRIENDS.

IN THE FAMILIA. – ONE MORE COMPADRE.
YES. [laughs] [passionate acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ [horse neighs] – I GREW UP IN MEXICO. AND WE DID A LOT OF FARMWORK. BUT MOST OF THE TIME,
IT’S RANCH WORK. GOOD, GOOD. I’M SO GLAD, YOU KNOW,
I GROWN UP IN THE RANCH. GO NOW.
EASY. COME. YOU LEARN, UH, GOOD THINGS,
AND… I REALLY HAVE IN MY HEART. NO, RUN, JUAN.
NO RUN. IN THE SLOW MOTION. WHOA. IF YOU RUN,
HE ALWAYS GOING TO RUN, OKAY? – OKAY. – THAT IS WHY WE HAVE BEEN
WORKING SO HARD TO– TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT
OF MY DREAM IN WHERE I LIVE RIGHT NOW. IN 2001, WE STARTED, UH,
OUR COMPANY. SO WE STARTED
WITH ME AND MY BROTHER, AND NOW, SOMETIMES,
WE KEEP, LIKE, TEN PEOPLE. [hammering] IN 2005, WE BUY 20 ACRES. WE START BUILDING
OUR STABLE. IT’S NOT BIG, YOU KNOW. BUT AT LEAST IT’S YOURS. NOW WE’RE IN BIG TROUBLE. NOW WE’RE TRAINING HORSES TO COMPETE
IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS. IT’LL BE TOUGH, HUH? [relaxing instrumental music.] ♪ ♪ – MY PARENTS ALWAYS TAUGHT ME, IF YOU WANT SOMETHING, YOU HAVE TO GO OUT
AND GET IT YOURSELF. I JUST WANTED HORSES. WHEN I WAS TWO YEARS OLD
AND I LOOKED OUTSIDE OUR VAN WINDOW
AND JUST SAW THEM AND JUST HOW BEAUTIFUL
THEY WERE. – KRIS, IF, LIKE– IF THERE’S, LIKE,
A HORSE WHISPERER OUT THERE, YOU KNOW, HE’D BE IT. HE’S GOT THAT
EXTRA CONNECTION. – KRISTOPHER WAS
AT FARRIER SCHOOL, AND THEY HAD THIS LITTLE BABY
IN A RING OUTSIDE. SHE WAS SIX MONTHS OLD. AND SHE WAS UNTOUCHABLE. SHE WAS WILD. AND HE ASKED
IF HE COULD GO OUT AND JUST PLAY
WITH THE LITTLE HORSE. AND THE GUY SAID,
“NO, SHE’S DANGEROUS. SHE’LL REAR UP.
SHE’LL STRIKE YOU.” AND HE WENT IN THE FIRST NIGHT, AND HE WAS WALKING AROUND
WITH HER, WAS PETTING HER EVERYWHERE. AND THE GUY
THAT OWNED THE SCHOOL GOES, “THERE’S NO WAY.” – [talking indistinctly] THERE’S NO REASON
TO ABANDON A HORSE IF HE NEEDS HELP. I’M A SLOW LEARNER
AND HAVE A HARD TIME READING. WITH A SCHOOL, IF THAT KID’S LOST,
HE’S LOST. AND THEN HE’S STRUGGLING
AND GETS ANGRY. THEY GAVE US A GOOD FOUNDATION
ON WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE CAN DO. THAT’S WHAT OUR PARENTS
GAVE US. AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE GONNA GIVE
TO THE HORSES. [grunting] OOF. GOOD JOB. GOOD JOB. [chatting indistinctly] – NICE. – OH, WOW. NICE, KRISTOPHER. – COMFORTABLE.
– WOW. – I KNOW.
– YOU CAN BREATHE NOW. [laughs]
– YOU GOT UP, KRISTOPHER. GOOD JOB.
– YOU CAN BREATHE NOW. – GOOD BOY, RANAHAN. LAH-LAH-LAH-LAH-LAH. PBBT. WHOA. – THE WHOLE POINT
OF THE COMPETITION IN ITS PUREST FORM IS TO BE ABLE TO SHOW THAT YOU CAN DEVELOP
THESE TYPES OF PARTNERSHIPS. THE SECRET IS SPENDING THAT TIME
WITH THE HORSE SO THAT WHEN
SOMETHING NEW HAPPENS, THEY’RE NOT GONNA WIG OUT
ON US. [horse chuffing] – WHOA. OH, ATTABOY. ATTABOY. PBBT. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT OLD
KIND OF COWBOY MENTALITY, WHERE YOU HAVE TO TREAT
THE HORSE PRETTY ROUGH. YOU KNOW, YOU CAN GET THEM
TO THIS POINT WITHOUT TOUCHING
A SINGLE SPUR, WITHOUT KIND OF REALLY FORCING
THE HORSE INTO IT. ATTABOY. WHOA, BUD. GOOD BOY. WHOA. GOOD BOY. [peaceful acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – I USED TO LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE,
IF THEY WERE TO ASK ME, “WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SOMEBODY
LIVE IN SAINT JO?” AND I WOULD
ALWAYS TELL THEM THAT, “WELL, THERE’S NO RED LIGHTS.” THERE’S A POST OFFICE,
A GAS STATION, AND A BANK. UH, THERE’S NOT MUCH
GOES ON THAT– IF YOU HAVE TO STAND IN LINE
TO DO ANYTHING, WE JUST DON’T DO IT. AND THAT MAKES
FOR A PLEASANT LIFE. – GEORGE IS A MAN’S MAN. HE’S A COWBOY. I KNOW WHEN WE GOT TOGETHER, HE TALKED ABOUT, YOU KNOW, MEETING A LOT OF WOMEN THAT COULDN’T DEAL WITH
HIS LIFESTYLE. WE’VE BEEN MARRIED
FOR THREE YEARS. – I WAS 65,
AND YOU WAS 56. – MM-HMM. – I’M ONE OF EIGHT SIBLINGS. UH, ALL SEVEN OF THE OTHERS MET AND MARRIED
THEIR LIFETIME MATE WHEN THEY WERE VERY YOUNG. AND THEN I COME ALONG, AND I GUESS IT’S KIND OF LIKE
A SCHOOLTEACHER THAT ONCE SAID, “WELL, WE’RE GONNA DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
TILL WE GET IT RIGHT.” YOU KNOW, AND I DID IT
SEVERAL TIMES, AND NOW, THANKFULLY,
I THINK I GOT IT RIGHT. – [chuckles] – SO IF YOU DON’T MIND ME
ASKING, HOW MANY TIMES
HAVE YOU BEEN MARRIED? – WELL, SHE’S NUMBER SEVEN. – [chuckles] – I TOLD HER,
“YOU’RE A RIVERBOAT GAMBLER, “YOU KNOW, TO MARRY ME. “YOU’RE JUST STRAIGHT OUT
OF YOUR GOURD.” – THAT–THAT KIND OF COME ACROSS
MY MIND TOO. – [laughs] – AND NOW,
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… – I THINK
WE’RE A PRETTY GOOD PAIR. I THINK IF WE’D HAVE PROBABLY
MET A LONG TIME AGO, COULD HAVE KEPT HIM
FROM HAVING SO MANY MARRIAGES. – I JUST AM AMAZED
EVERY DAY THAT I GET UP THAT’S IT’S–
THAT SHE WAS THERE. AND SHE WAS THE PERSON
SO MUCH THAT I WANTED. EVERYTHING ABOUT HER
WAS WHAT I WANTED. NEARLY EVERYTHING ABOUT HER. – [laughs]
– AND, UH… I’M JUST THANKFUL
THAT I FOUND HER. – WE’RE PRETTY GOOD FRIENDS. THAT’S THE THING, I THINK,
THAT MAKES IT WORK. – LET’S GO! [buzzer sounds] [horse chuffing]
– COME ON. [horse chuffing]
WELL, COME ON. [horse chuffing]
COME ON. [horse chuffing]
COME ON. COME ON. [horse chuffing]
COME ON. COME ON. ATTABOY. COME ON.
[clicks teeth] YOU ARE A HARDHEADED
LITTLE SUCKER. – WAYLON’S A LITTLE–
HE’S A LITTLE OUTLAW, A FAT, FEISTY LITTLE FELLA. – DON’T YOU BITE ME. – HE IS JUST NASTY. HE’S JUST GOT A NASTY
LITTLE DISPOSITION. – WHOA, WHOA. SOONER OR LATER, ME AND HIM HAVE GOT TO HAVE
A “COME TO JESUS” ON THIS BITING THING. ATTABOY. I EXPECT
INSTANT GRATIFICATION, AND YOU JUST DON’T GET IT
DOING THIS. WAS THAT FUN?
HUH? DID YOU HAVE FUN? YOU HAVE FUN? [gate rattles] WHOA. IT’S HARD, IN 100 DAYS,
TO GET A HORSE TO DO WHAT
WE GOT TO GET THEM TO DO, MUCH LESS GET ONE TO DO THAT
THAT’S GOT THAT– THAT HAS THE ATTITUDE
THAT HE HAD. [horse chuffing] HE’S BEEN A PILL.
HE’S BEEN A PILL. [chuckles]
DON’T YOU BITE ME. – THIS HORSE MAY BE
UNTRAINABLE. HE MAY NOT HAVE
A GENTLE BONE IN HIS BODY. I’VE HAD A LOT OF WORRIED TIME,
BECAUSE HE– THE HORSE HAS BEEN
HARD TO FIGURE OUT. HE’S BEEN DIFFERENT
THAN ANY OTHER HORSES. AND IT IS SCARY, ‘CAUSE I DON’T WANT HIM
TO GET HURT. – COME ON. [laughs] ONE FOR THE HORSE. [hums] MY AGE, IT ALWAYS HURTS
WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND, BUT MY DOCTOR’S WORDS TO ME
RECENTLY WERE, “GEORGE, YOU ARE TOO LONG
OF TOOTH TO BE DOING THIS.” AND I TOLD HIM THAT, “WELL, WHEN I GET BUSTED UP,
YOU PUT ME BACK TOGETHER, “AND I’LL KEEP PULLING UP
MY SADDLE. AS LONG AS YOU CAN DO YOUR JOB,
I’M GONNA DO MINE.” I THINK THAT’S AS CLOSE
AS I’M GONNA DO TO GETTING ON HIM TODAY. [gentle acoustic guitar] ♪ ♪ – YEAH, I ALWAYS SAY THAT, “NOW, A HORSE, YOU GOT TO
TREAT IT LIKE A WOMAN.” IF YOU TOUCH HER
IN THE WRONG PLACE, SHE’S GONNA HIT YOU. HE’S A LOT OF HORSE, THE WAY I SEE IT. AND IF YOU TRY TO PUSH HIM
TOO MUCH, HE DON’T LIKE IT. – MY DAD’S BEEN SPENDING TIME
WITH HIM, BEEN DOING A LOT OF STUFF
WITH HIM. TO ACTUALLY EARN HIS TRUST… HE’S ALREADY GOT THE TRUST, BUT MY DAD DON’T HAVE THE TRUST
ON GETTING ON HIM. – ARE YOU READY TO GET ON HIM? – NOT REALLY. I’M NOT WORRIED
ABOUT HOW MANY DAYS I HAVE LEFT BEFORE I GET ON HIM OR HOW MANY WEEKS I HAVE LEFT
TO GET ON. 60 MORE DAYS, FOR ME–
[chuckles] 60 DAYS IS NOTHING. IF I’M GONNA GET ON, I’M GONNA DO IT BY MYSELF. IN CASE THIS OLD MAN
GETS BUCKED OFF, NOBODY’S GONNA SEE IT. I’M GONNA MAKE SURE I CLEAN
THE MESS WHERE I FELL TO, SO I DON’T LEAVE NO EVIDENCE. LIVING ON THE NAVAJO RESERVATION
IS TOUGH. THE JOB IS SCARCE. THE WAY OF THE LIVING
IS HARD. SO THE BEST THING TO DO IS TRY TO FIND A WAY TO WHERE
YOU CAN SUPPORT YOURSELF. AND CARLOS HAS COME OUT
TO THE POINT WHERE HE IS MAKING A LIVING HELPING OTHER PEOPLE
START THEIR HORSES. AND HE’S BEEN SUCCESSFUL
IN THAT AREA. – THIS IS THE FIRST TIME
HE’S OUT. I’M GETTING HIM USED TO
AND FAMILIAR TO HIS SURROUNDINGS WHERE HE’S
GONNA BE AT MOST OF THE TIME. FOLLOWING ME ANYWHERE I GO. IF A HORSE DON’T KNOW
HOW TO LEAD, I DRAG IT DOWN. A COUPLE TIMES BACK
UP AND DOWN… [horse whinnies] I’VE GOT A HORSE
THAT’S LEADING. I JUST BEEN AROUND HORSES. EVER SINCE THE DAY
I CAN GET ON, THAT’S ALL I DO. – WHEN HE WAS LITTLE,
HE ALWAYS USED TO IMITATE TRAINING A HORSE
OR SADDLING UP A HORSE. USUALLY, HIS HORSE WAS A COUCH
OR COFFEE TABLE OR SOMETHING. – WHEN HE WAS A LITTLE KID, ONE MORNING,
HE CAME UP TO ME AND SAYS, “BUY ME A HORSE.” [horse whinnies] SO I GOT HIM A SHETLAND PONY. AND I SAID,
“OKAY, YOU TAKE THIS REIN. “YOU PULL IT,
AND YOU GO THIS WAY. “YOU PULL THIS.
I GO THAT WAY. “AND IF YOU GET BUCKED OFF,
CLIMB BACK ON. IF I HEAR YOU CRYING,
I SELL THE HORSE.” SO TODAY, HE’S STILL AT IT. [horse whinnies] IN A WAY, WHAT I HAVE
THOUGHT ABOUT WHEN I WAS YOUNG, HE’S DOING IT. SOMETIMES, IT…BRINGS TEARS. IT’S HARD TO TALK ABOUT HIM. IT’S, UM… IT’S MORE JOYFUL
TALKING ABOUT HIM. AND I AM REALLY PROUD OF HIM. I WANT HIM TO BE
OUT THERE SOMEWHERE, MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF. – OKAY, WE HAVE TO GO GET YOU
READY FOR SCHOOL, OKAY? – YEAH.
– CAN YOU SAY HI? – HI.
– WHAT’S YOUR NAME? – RYKER.
– AND HOW OLD ARE YOU, RYKER? – FOUR. – I’VE ALWAYS SAID THERE’S
TWO SIDES OF WYLENE WILSON. THERE’S, YOU KNOW,
THE PUBLIC SIDE. AND THEN THERE’S
THE VERY PRIVATE SIDE THAT HAS A FAMILY,
AND, YOU KNOW, I’M A MOTHER,
AND I’M A SINGLE MOM, WHICH MAKES IT EVEN HARDER
AS IT IS. AND–
– [whining indistinctly] – KENSLEY, STOP!
HERE, GIVE IT TO ME. THERE’S SUCH A PART OF ME
THAT’S SO DIFFERENT THAT– THAT’S A FUN MOM,

FOR US TRAINERS TO ALSO LOOK OUR VERY BEST,
LET ALONE THE HORSES. AND OBVIOUSLY, THERE’S A PERSONA

  1. FIrstoff, I Hate that they are taking them from living WIld. "Culling" the herd or whatever they want to call it–well I think MONEY is Always involved. I also saw some video showing that the Govtmt was secretly having them hauled off in trucks at night to sell for, yeah, dogfood or horsemeat for the people of Europe. Well, that is MONEY, isn't it, and what it always comes down to. But even these "Challenges 100 in 100", I would like to know what MONEY involved. They have to Pay to take one on to train? You don't say… Then from listening, learned that the Horses trained for 100 days and many hours, Do Not BELONG to the people that have Trained them, for heaven's sakes. That is WRONG. Then the "Mustang" people (who love Mustangs) Auction them Off?! to highest Bidder? So Somebody is MAKING MONEY AGAIN. Oh yeah–it all goes back to some Wild Horse Fund, Right… I just see people trying to figure ways to make Money and more Money. I see people who Love Horses. I see beautiful horses taken from their families and life of freedom. I see people who make friends with these horses and then have to give them up to strangers that they Hope will be Good to them and that they will have a Good Life. So several things bother me here…

  2. That's CRAP, that these people spend 100 days of Intense training and expense, and the Mustang makes a Real Friend; and then you SELL THEM TO HIGHEST BIDDER! That's Wrong. These people have Brought Attention to what the Mustang is capable of. So they've helped your Cause Alot. You have plenty more Mustangs to SELL. Let the rich people PAY to get their Mustang Trained. Have a serious sliding scale to enable the ones who don't have alot of money be Able to Buy this Horse that should already be Theirs. This stinks of Greed, under the auspice of "doing a good thing for the Mustang"–because first, they have found a human they could Trust (after you took them from their home and horse family), but then you Take them from That Friend also. That is cruel and no feelings. Only about MONEY again, once again, and always, it sure does seem like it. And you will not make me see differently, because it Isn't differently.

  3. Compadre had a beautiful arch in his neck too… Noble steed. But see–Jesus trained him, which made him valuable for your Sale. So then he cannot afford to buy the Mustang HE trained. That is topsy-turvy Wrong. There is something very upsetting about this whole rigamarole. I was hoping someone had anonymously called to buy it For him, but that would be a dream… Again I say, if the person wants to keep the horse they trained over 100 days, you should let them. It's just Rotten. The Fat Cats always make out from the little (poor, with nothing) guy's work…. I'm Sick of that. So the Mustang gets to be Taken again, and Afraid again; and have to start Over with a new person to learn to Trust, and that will Hopefully treat them well and love them…

  4. How can the Horse "understand" that their New Friend is being forced (if they don't got mula) to abandon them to a new Owner? Person that trained has No standing on the Value and Time and Love they have given. Stinking system you got there.

  5. So only the Winner (one) gets any money at all? And did I see $1000? And how could Wylene win Another competition a month later? Was she training Two mustangs at the same time?! Glad Compadre and his Trainer got to see each other again and sounds like he got a lush home and will be loved and taken good care of…

  6. I just want to know how the hell Wylene (cowgirl daredevil woman) rode that horse within a two days of getting him!

  7. Although a whole lot of the trainers didn’t know what they were doing, the bio chemist pissed me off A LOT. Even if you’re the most confident person on the planet and you have a bit of experience with horses, you should never and I mean NEVER start your first ever training of a horse with a wild mustang l.

  8. This girl is ME !!!

    I AM CRAZY GIRL ! I PLANNED TO GET A MUSTANG TOO XD

    But its when your willing to be kind and patient and understanding that you change from crazy to ambitious.

    Tons of weanlings people don't want for cheap… But who wants that when you can save a life and take on a challenge. Read. Watch. Study.

    Thanks for posting this !

  9. I like this documentary but there were a few times when I just kept saying Perelli, Perelli, Perelli! Use Perelli natural horsemanship techniques and that horse will follow you! Most certainly he will stop biting you. ❤️🌞

  10. It's the same as keeping human in not natural envirolment etc. basement without windows, giving them food and telling how they love you, so sad😢

  11. Does that teacher know anything about horses besides riding? It looked like a total train wreck the way she was training that horse. This whole video makes me wish I was doing the training, cause I'd sure be better than her. I have been very depressed lately, because I have lived in the city, and I'm getting sick of the people and the noises, and I really want to leave and go to the country where I can own a horse and ride trails. I have been watching countless training videos, and reading books. I briefly owned a un-broke horse and I was able to get a saddle on her, but at that point we had to sell her because we couldn't afford her. I also ridden for 4 years, and I'm better than some people who have ridden far longer. I feel like I have a gift with horses, because it may look like I lack experience on paper, but I really do know what I'm doing, I know the steps required to train a horse (I cannot stress this enough how groundwork is MUCH more important than riding in the beginning), and I'm very capable of owning and training a horse. I'm just venting cause I'm obsessed with horses and I haven't ridden in a year or petted one and it's driving me crazy

  12. Oh I loved how these two young guys worked with the horses. They seemed so calming and it also seemed like they love to do that project for the horses not just for the competition.

  13. Cheers for this, I have been researching "horse trainer australia" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Menailey Vonaliyah Formula – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my buddy got cool success with it.

  14. Merci pour la vidéo. J'ai adoré ce reportage. Arriver à faire ce dressage en si peu de temps est une prouesse ! Les chevaux sont magnifiques. Amicalement. 💙
    Thanks for the video. I loved this story. To be able to do this training in such a short time is a feat! The horses are beautiful. Sincerely. 💚

  15. Less than 5 months until I pick up my first EMM mustang! They’ll be the 3rd mustang I’ve tamed but I’m still terrified😂

  16. I really liked this but I got really irritated with that professor ladies friends. They were such downers and didn’t believe in her at all. And didn’t offer and help they just complained about the horse and her abilities as a trainer. For someone who hasn’t been around horses she give it her best shot and actually trained that horse pretty well. Even after falling off and getting hurt she got back on and did great! Screw her shitty friends who sat on their asses and did nothing but complain I can’t stand people like that

  17. I work with horses for a living. I am happy that you drew inspiration from the nature of the horse. that is always a very admirable approach

  18. This was a great video. Congratulations to all of the people involved and THANK YOU ALL for committing so much of your time, care and love for a truly fantastic cause. I did think that Clint Bailey and Rooster got robbed of first place. Rembrandt and Wylene Wilson did a great job but her show seemed more flash and glitter when compared to Bailey's performance. Afterwards, having her daughter come running out onto the course at the end while she herself cried seemed like a tug on the judge's heart strings. She and her horse were excellent but I think Bailey should have won for sure. The different approaches by everyone involved and different outcomes were very interesting to see. It's great when we get to see the outcome of the bidding on the horses and where they ended up.

  19. I was raised in the farm born in the city the sadest thing i lost my grandparents as my grand father passed we had to move grandma to the city my grand father was killed by hes tractor we raised so many animals especially wild horses it was the love our lives being in the farm i have a husband who was in accident hit by a drunk & driver so i'm in coresponding the earnings in my home my bills , i bought a 1800 Omish home that i cant finish with out supplies I couln't even have a truck after they struck my truck in a accident. i have furniture i'm trying to take out with the weather it made the house look worse i have no room to put my furniture & i don't want to loose my things with another bad weather ,trying hard to work to get my supplies if their is any help out there my house passed over bad weathers 4 sons 2 daughters 11 grandchildren. i'm still out at Kustom Cattle Farm. I Feel this guy about the horses they are caring plus they know when you care i also work with cattle we care so much in for them too. i see my self in this for being a cowgirl who was thaught by my family . 12546972515 1906 west Batte street Milam. the city wont help here nor i have no funds my sons were trying to help in getting construction jobs they just started in flawless construction so they couldnt help me with friends but it got rough on us to get seperated with their lives & distance & marriage with their family . pray for us i'm still trying for my jobs i need to support my 16 yr daughter i have left to help her in school for shes only in the 9th still have 3 yrs for graduation & college & i've tryed to give her a sweet sixteen with her friends but it was very hard for me i need your prayers so i can survive this alone with my daughter friends i thought i could rent my house but it never happened days went by me not having a permanent job so pray for my family especially for some of us who have jobs & i dont want to loose mine either i've gone threw bad times i still too help my parents who are still living my father who was struck by cancer is a survivor but he has days & my mother who works for herself trying to pay her bills i still help her its hard some days my brother moved in with them my sister is ill my other sister got struck in the head grew a tumor & had it removed months ago has her days .you can text me. my prayers are with you all too. love you . the girl From Sugar Loaf Mountain. i hope their is help for this country girl no matter what others think others say when im a mother who is alone in this & i care for my future for me & my sons & my daughters. especially my grand children i enjoyed watching them grow older thank you for your show on contest they are all good sportsmen Congradulations to you all.friends, its hard to loose something in our lives & very true we carry them in our hearts . Thats a special bond in cowboys.

  20. To train a horse you know is going to someone else, you tell yourself "don't fall in love with the horse". But you do, and you still have to walk away, it hurts deep. I was fortunate, I was eventually given my girl. She's not a mustang, just a bratty Haflinger, but I love her.

  21. Is nothing sacred anymore…FREEDOM!!! Why dont we round up the U S goverment like this…..put them in pens. Slaighter some as well. This has 2 stop! Thanks 2 the people who care & treat the horse with respect! 👍✌💗

  22. The winners are the horses that get worthy partners for a long healthy life. I see the results of bad owners when I go to the horse auctions to help rescue from slaughter. The saddest is to see the horses that the owners used up in competitions that injured them. They sell them by the pound instead of finding a retirement home or putting them down humanely.

  23. The young Hispanic man has the "connection"….he gets the horse and because of that,the horse can get him. They begin to understand each other..very little real words..mostly body language, the "peace" inside you that horses can begin to know you aren't threatening and yet you have perameters for a horse to understand as limits to choices he wants to make for himself when the man is riding or with him(the horse).

  24. Its all about trust, being truthful and not abusing that trust…just like folks who love each other should be…

  25. The older gentleman’s techniques are definitely not the best. That poor little horse, that man is way to big to be on him. Not to mention no saddle pad, very frustrating to see.

  26. Why why do they choose to use pain bits? A real horseman can ride bit less. These are fresh horses and could just as easily been taught to ride with a pain bit. Rrrrrrrr just makes me so mad. I'm no horse trainer and I never ever ride with a bit so I just don't get why they insist on using pain.

  27. Phenomenal!!!!! …&…still need tissues…Lol..wipe sniff..SMILE..LAUGH,LOVE…SMILE SOME, sniff, SMILE SOME MORE…!!!!

  28. this documentary is amazing. I did not like everything that they showed. But: I did not expect to see so much love and respect

  29. Love this storyline so great what a beauiful thing and all animals need. Love BUT I JUST Love horse they are so awesome horses need hope.

  30. I’m love it but did not agree with the one mans training methods. Lasoing a horse and forcing it too be near you is not the way too do it

  31. Each and every trainer played into the soul of the matter & each and every horse won a place in my heart. Thanks for publishing the show. I feel privileged to have found and watched, Wild Horse Wild Ride.

  32. Great Documentary. Hats off to all those that gave their hearts to training these horses, and for letting their heart be broken to let them go.

  33. THEY ARE VERY GENEROUS HUMBEL LOVELY BEAUTIFUL AND STRONG 💪 CREATURES DOGS N HORSES ARE VERY LOYAL EVEN THE OWNER IS BAD THEY KEEP THERE LOYALTY THEY ARE GIFTS FROM GOD AND THEY ARE VERY IMPORTANT LIKE FAMILY 👪 BACK DAYS NOW LOOK WHAT WE DOING TO PLANET 🌏 POLUTION AND WE LIVE IN CAGES NO NEAR NATURE ITS DESTROYING EVERYTHING FAMILY STRUTHER VALUES ALL GONE

  34. I absolutely LOVE Jesus and the Kokal boys. My favorites by far! They did an amazing job training and they you could tell they really had a connection and a bond with them.

    Also, can we address how much of an egotistical brat Wylene Wilson is?!

  35. I'm 2 months into working at a wild mustang non-profit here in New Mexico with 18 horses. This is my 2nd volunteer assignment this year and I'm by myself almost every day. I consider each horse a friend and treat them accordingly. Breaking thru to a shy horse with consistency, patience, and respect really can make your week. Having a wild horse come up to you and just lean into you for a bit of ear scratching quickly becomes an afternoon thing. Caring for a horse injured during gelding consumes your thoughts. Getting out of the van to gently guide a group across the road so they don't get hit becomes common. Wild Mustangs… I'm watching over them now.

  36. Multiple trainers from all over the US. ( and some Canadians ) are proving that the work is worth it. Mustangs are smart, canny and strong. Many are doing well in both Western and English.. They seem to love the cross country eventing courses. One 14.2 hand mare is competing , and doing well against Off the track thoughbreds and Warmbloods 🙂

  37. The boy's horse, if it was a gelding at time of filming had been a stallion for A LONG TIME!!! LORD WHAT A CRESTED NECK!!! 🙂

  38. This way of controlling the mustang population is so unsustainable. Predators need to be introduced. Let nature keep natures numbers down.
    Catching them won't work forever.

  39. those two young guys did the most amazing job. Not even 100 days yet and he's riding that black horse with a blindfold. And the other guys just took his horse inot the house with him. swimming with them.
    It makes me so sad thye can't keep them. Those horses and guys are made for eachother.
    I'm glad Sioux got adopted by a family kris knows and Ranahan ended up only 90 minutes away.

  40. BS"D Before watching, I must say – it is heartbreaking to me that they cannot simply be left to live their natural lives – wild and free.

  41. we had horses – i enjoyed to ride – family boarded and owned to – I truly miss all of them – very sad letting go !!!

  42. I think that this has been a wonderful documentary! I wish that Charles hadn't approached his horse in such a seemingly unsympathetic manner. The way that he tied him to the round pen, remind me of the way that my father used to train horses. All machismo, and not a great approach for a horse who had just lost his entire way of life just days before.

  43. Nooooooouuuuuuuu noouu seee ingleeesss niiii pooqiiitooooouuuuu!!!! Doblenla porfis aunqe sea de jiripoyas esas peliculas me gustan muchooo 😭😭😭😭😭

  44. It's great to see the great love these horsemen have for their mustangs. So sad to have to auction them after the bond the build together.

  45. My grandad owned lots of horses.They also gathered will horses back in his day and domesticated them.1918.He was very good at training them.His favorite mare named Bessie would happily take him to my grandads local Bar,which was 7km down the road.Bessie would lay down outside the bar for hours until grandad was done.He would come out so drunk,his friends would help him to his faithful horse still laying down waiting for grandad.His friends would help him sit on Bessie,She would only get up when she was sure grandad was sitting ok.Then Bessie would start the journey home.Just trotting off course.On arrival at the house,she would knock with her hoof which made aloud sound because of the horseshoe.Gran would open the door,quite annoyed at grandads inebriation.Bessie would go straight to grandads bedroom and flip him gently onto his bed.Then she would turn and go to her stall for a well deserved sleep.Till I die I will never forget Bessie.If you love an animal it loves you right back,with loyalty and faithfulness. This happened on grandads farm, here in South Africa.

  46. Enjoyed this documentary, loved it! Horses are such majestic beautiful animals. Too see the journey that a human and a horse go thru and the bond that develops..so magical. Heartbreaking to see them leave them…so crying…😭😭😭😭

  47. I love horses a lot. Sad that I didn't have a chance to own a horse as beautiful as to what I'm watching now. It's a dream that won't come true for me. 😥😥😥
