Synopsis: America’s wild horses are in crisis.
For centuries horses have ploughed our fields and carried us into battle.
Caught in the crossfire over land use rights and a shrinking wild landscape, America’s wild horses are struggling to survive.
Some still roam wild, but those thousands that have been gathered are held in government contracted facilities with little hope for adoption.
150 million acres of western public lands belong to all of us, and we can do right by its wildlife. But the issues are complex, and won’t be solved by shouting on social media.
Join wildlife photographers Jamie Baldanza and Deb Lee Carson on their mission to document America’s most elusive herds of wild horses and examine their politically complicated lives.
In the docuseries Wild Lands Wild Horses, beautiful cinematography is woven into exclusive conversations with scientists, ranchers, government officials, and wildlife advocates, who — despite their differences — all share the same goal.
Jamie Baldanza is a professional equine photographer and filmmaker dedicated to preserving America’s wild horses. Jamie’s production company “This Mustang Life” concentrates on bringing animal causes to the public through film. Jamie’s latest short film, “Pass The Safe Act” was created in collaboration with Skydog Sanctuary to promote action to permanently ban horse slaughter in the U.S. and end the export of American horses for slaughter abroad.
