About this project
Legend, the Wild Mustang team is creating this film to raise awareness of the mustangs value to our American heritage, and to promote the magical experience of their adoption and training.
Legend, the Wild Mustang will follow horse trainer Brad Anderson from the adoption of a wild horse to the greatest mustang training challenge ever created, Mustang Million. Brad will have 100 days to gentle and train his mustang before he competes for 1 million dollars in cash and prizes against one thousand other trainers. The event takes place in Fort Worth Texas on September 16-21, 2013.
This film will not only show the amazing abilities of mustangs, but the mystical connection between horse and man. From wild untouched animal to willing partner, you'll embark on a journey that will excite and inspire.
Brad Anderson has been working with horses since his championship high school rodeo days in the 1960's. Brad has trained and competed in everything from jumping and dressage to western pleasure and cutting.
While being named a Cowboy of the Year in 2007, Brad still holds true to a universal training method for all disciplines. Built on gentle, but firm leadership, Brad brings an entertaining and inspirational approach to horse training. This especially shows in his work with the Wild American Mustang!
Bronson Anderson is a independent film maker with a passion for story telling. He helped his father, our trainer for this project, gentle a wild mustang and began to formulate an idea.
"In attempting to tell a great story, you must find intrigue, danger, and inspiration. Brad Anderson in just a few minutes in a round pen with a mustang on a warm summer night in Salt Lake City, showed me all three. There are a great many amazing horse trainers and techniques in the world and it would be impossible to say who or which is best. I can say that I have never seen anyone do it like him and I can't wait to share this journey with the world." - Bronson Anderson
Other Team Members
To make the competition in Texas evan more memorable Brad Anderson decided to bring a little magic to his performance, literally. He brought on professional Las Vegas magician, Illusionist and Guinness World Record breaking escape artist Jackson Rayne.
Jackson will be designing and teaching Brad how to perform the effect. Along with Jackson Brad enlisted Las Vegas costume designer and art director Jared Dalley.
Jared has created multiple award winning costumes. His work can be seen all around the Las Vegas area, including the performers at the Venetian Hotel and Casino. This combination is sure to excite and amaze.
Risks and challenges
When working with any wild creature there is always a risk of injury to both the trainer and the animal. We take safety extremely seriously and we are working with only trained professionals to ensure that safety.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
