If you’ve got a TV, set a reminder for this. If you don’t have one, borrow one or visit a horsey friend who’s planning on watching. You shouldn’t miss it.
Tuesday, August 25 at 10 PM EDT (I have no clue what time this is in Hawaii) ABC News will feature Horse Warriors in their special on Mustangs in America.
Canyon, one of the horses at Horse Warriors, together with his riders Kira and Claire, will star in this documentary portraying of the journey of a wild horse.
Canyon’s path is traced from his first touch by humans in the Canyon City, CO prison, to further training as a therapy horse at Assurance Home in Roswell, NM, and finally to his forever home at Horse Warriors where he shines as a gifted healer. Shown, jumped, trail ridden and barrel raced by a rider with a full prosthetic leg, Canyon’s contribution to the field of equine facilitated mental health and learning is legion.
This looks to be a really good bit of television for the whole family, showing the ways horses can change the lives of kids and families in empowerment programs and prison inmates. Check your local listings for network coverage.
