UPDATE January 9th, 2018.
When we first watched this film, we were impressed. We’ve since been dismayed to hear that the human “star” of the film apparently has a less than stellar, in our humble opinion, track record when it comes to wild horses.

We will add more here as we learn more.
In 2013, filmmaker Ben Master, three of his friends, and 16 wild mustangs journeyed across 3,000 miles of some of the most rugged territory in the American West. This audacious trek—to inspire adoptions of wild horses and burros—has since inspired Ben to help others on their own journeys. Hear Ben share inspiring stories from the road and watch clips from his documentary ‘Unbranded.’
Though revered as icons of the West, the animals—and the public lands they call home—are under threat. The filmmaker Andrew Ellis followed one activist’s attempts to save them.

P.S. The film states: "Sent off to a horrific death in Mexico",
Unfortunately horses are also shipped to Canada from the United States to be slaughtered.
