Movie Info

ALL THE WILD HORSES follows international riders from around the world as they compete in the Mongol Derby in Mongolia, the longest and toughest horse race on the planet. In this race across 700 miles of Mongolian steppe the riders are on their own, navigating from horse station to horse station where they change horses every 30 miles. They have to deal with dehydration, hypothermia, exhaustion, extreme weather, swollen rivers, attacking dogs and roaming wolves. The riders stay the nights out in the wild or with nomad families. To choose a wrong horse at a horse station could get them bucked off, losing their mount in the process, or suffer more serious injuries. Filmmaker Ivo Marloh rides the 1000-kilometre race twice to embed himself in the individual stories and document exactly what compels riders from all around the world to risk broken bones, life-threatening injuries, or their life savings for an experience that will change their lives forever, in one of the last true wildernesses on Earth, on the back of wild horses

Critic Reviews for All the Wild Horses

All Critics (8)

This is one of those uncomplicated documentaries on a fascinating subject that could generate a cult.

It's a visually striking film, and although footage was shot over several years the feel is of one race and one set of participants.

Collisions, broken limbs, punctured lungs, mortally wounded horses - it's all part of the fun, and there's always the chance that your nag will decide it's had enough of you and hare off in search of its herd.

Marloh is too busy racing around the Mongolian steppe to get under the skin of his subjects. However, there are still plenty of twists and turns as the film builds to a nail-biting finish.

June 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

To non-horse-riders the subject of this looks like the most extraordinary exercise in masochism and self-harm, and yet there is a kind of fascination in it.

June 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

You can't help but warm to the competitors' gumption, ambition and a bravery that often comes close to foolhardiness.
