DENVER – Bringing value to a horse with no purpose – the American Mustang – and a group of veterans seeking their new norm, is the beginnings of a challenging horse training program that ends with a 560-mile pack trip, but culminates in life-changing decisions for both man and animal. Making its small-screen television debut, 500 Miles, will air on Outdoor Channel on Veterans Day, November 11 at 9 p.m. ET.
The film follows 16 Bureau of Land Management wild mustangs that are gathered and trained by the crew at Heroes and Horses. These wild horses will eventually be integrated into the non-profit located in Manhattan, Montana. The veterans in the program set out in the middle of summer’s heat to begin prepping the horses for a 40-day re-integration program. This unique process transforms lives through pressure and time. Ultimately, its purpose is to allow the veterans and horses to overcome their external circumstances.
500 Miles was created by former Navy SEAL combat Veteran Mike Reiley and Heroes and Horses founder, Micah Fink. The film will captivate and inspire; and bring hope to anyone who has faced a “500-mile journey” in their lives.
