Synopsis: As thousands of America’s wild horses are rounded up from their lawfully given free roaming life on the range, tensions run high for their future. With nearly forty thousand wild horses and burros already languishing in long term “warehousing” the need for solutions to the crisis is critical. While referencing the many experts who challenge the current management system, myths and biases, utilized to justify it, WILD HORSES IN WINDS OF CHANGE, remains above all a meaningful journey of beauty into the soulful world of America’s mustangs.
America’s wild horses have touched my heart. Land, once declared legally theirs has been taken from them. All voices are needed to present sustainable solutions for the wild horses to remain free roaming. Watch the trailers and leave educated comments. Let’s find sustainable solutions for horses, water and habitat.
This wild horse film is told through the lens of America’s wild horses. It examines the forces that work against wild horses on America’s range lands. By capturing footage of wild horses, born and living as highly adaptable wild inhabitants of the land, the viewer more fully understands the complexities of the wild horses history in America and what forces threaten their existence today.
This wild horse film is a call to action, not only for the wild horses, but calls upon all of us to be guardians and stewards of all of nature. Mara LeGrand was interviewed internationally for radio, print and T.V. about this film and for her deep wisdom about the intertwined relationship humans have with all of the planet and it’s inhabitants. The film was broadcast on PBS channels nation wide. Click here to watch the film trailer.
