Corralling horses, free-spirited animals that are nonetheless "the backbone of civilization," says narrator Sally Kellerman. "They utterly changed our sense of distance and speed." The hour, which visits Mongolia, Montana, Spain, Georgia and California, traces horses back some 60-million years, and examines how humans and their predecessors have used (and abused) them over the last million. Also examined: efforts to return horses to the wild; how "horse whisperers" communicate with horses; and "therapeutic riding" for people with disabilities. Produced in cooperation with National Geographic Television.
