    ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

    Micah Fink

    Micah was raised in Upstate New York and joined the military in 2003, later becoming a US Navy SEAL and paramilitary contractor.

    FILM SYNOPSIS

    On January 3, 2017, Heroes and Horses—a Montana-based nonprofit organization—embarked on the first stage of integrating 16 wild mustangs into their 40-day re-integration program for combat veterans. The Heroes and Horses veteran staff, crew, volunteers and friends headed to Burns, Oregon, where Heroes and Horses adopted 16 wild mustangs from the holding facility at the Oregon BLM.

    Their goal was to put these mustangs through a rigorous gentling process from January to March. They would depart on a 560-mile pack trip with the wild horses through some of the most unforgiving landscape in New Mexico and Arizona in hopes of being able to integrate them into the current Heroes and Horses herd and utilize them in the 2017 Heroes and Horses veteran program, which began in June 2017. This is the true story of the unpurposed horse and the unpurposed human being and how purpose allows people and horses to overcome their external circumstances.
