Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wild Horse, Wild Ride is a documentary about training wild mustangs for competition and adoption. There are some fearful moments as horses resist training, a couple brief instances of profanity ("s--t"), and mostly footage of humans slowly winning the trust of these wild majestic beasts as they gear up for the big day. It's an informative and sometimes moving look at the bonding and psychology of horse training, ideal for horse lovers but interesting enough for a general audience. Still, the waxing philosophical and emotional about breaking wild horses could bore younger kids.
