Breaking Wild (10×60) – NEW SERIES (Corus Studios)
Canadian Original, World Broadcast Premiere
A compelling real-life Western, this doc series follows the efforts of the fearless Xeni Gwet’in (pronounced Honey Gwet-teen) cowboys, transplanted American Naval Officer Michael Lares, and legendary horse trainer Mike Hawkridge, who work to ensure the survival of the wild Qayus horses and continue the legacy of cowboy culture in their title lands. Their home, B.C.’s Nemiah Valley, is a secluded and off the grid ‘shangra la’ – untouched for hundreds of years and fiercely protected by the Xeni Gwet’in. Against all odds, these horses survive despite the constant threat of predators, overpopulation, and precarious food supplies. But capturing and training them is no easy task – these horses are among the smartest, strongest and rarest on the planet and it will take the best being their best to harness the horses’ unbridled strength and spirit and transform them into trusty steeds owners are proud to own.
