User rating: 5

42m | Documentary, Drama

On a gentle, spring night at a world-famous stud farm, three foals are born, their bloodlines stretching back over centuries, their futures bright with promise. We see them through their early days as they learn what it is to be a horse. Separated from their mothers after five months, they run together, free of training and obligation until the day of the yearling sales.

Then three unique stories begin as we follow the lives of a runaway black colt, a mischievous bay colt and a courageous chestnut filly. Each story has the spectacle and the emotion to connect with and hold your heart and teaches us about the lives of horses. For 60 centuries, we have ridden on the backs of these animals as their strength and willingness changed the course of civilizations across the world. Now, they depend on us for survival. With art, science and drama, this film shows us why this is a debt we owe to the noblest animal of them all. But above all, it reminds us of why so many of us love horses.
