Experts in the field challenge the current management system of America's wild horses.
Long Description: 
A film that inspires stewardship of nature told through the lens of the crises facing America's wild horses. The film tells the story of how America's wild horses are lawfully protected but unlawfully managed by the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program. The Wild Horse and Burro Protection Act says they are to be managed as free roaming and integral part of the land they are presently found free roaming. Now.. .....as thousands of wild horses and burros are rounded up from their free roaming life on the range, tensions run high for their future. With close to forty thousand wild horses and burros discarded in long term warehousing, the time for solutions is critical. Experts in the field challenge the current management system and the non-scientific myths and biased views about the wild horses. Despite the current crises for the horses, this film is a journey of beauty into the meaningful presence of America's mustangs on public lands and in our lives.
