  • An heart-warming tale of a lifetime endeavour to preserve these magnificent beasts by 9

    It's a surprise that Dayton O'Hyde is not the household name he deserves to be. This is a beautifully shot, beautifully scored tale of an amazing man whose tireless efforts to preserve the habitat of the old American-West has allowed once-endangered wild horses to flourish. Despite his age, Dayton O'Hyde continues his daily struggle against big corporations that want to use the vast expanses of unspoilt wilderness for commercial purposes, and does this in his own inimitable cowboy-style. This man should take his place alongside other legends of the equine world, such as horse-whisperers Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt, as a man who truly understands and appreciates these magnificent beasts. A must see.
