tCm: There are nine featured competitors in “Wild Horse, Wild Ride” How did you chose the “candidates” to feature in the competition and in the film? PC: We started with a list of 100 trainers and we really wanted diversity. We were hoping to get diversity. AD: Right. We were blown away by how many different people from how many different walks of life; age 19 - 69, from New Hampshire to Texas to Arizona and all over and not all horse people, especially not wild horse people. Each one had an incredible story of their own and their reasons for participating in the EMM competition. We had no idea how different the people would be and its phenomenal. Each person is randomly assigned to their horse, so it delighted us that the horses had as much character as their people.


tCm: Who had final word on the “talent”? AD: Wesley Elliot…(laughing) Wesley works at the Mustang Heritage Foundation and she suggested, strongly suggested we include Jose Jauregui. She felt Jose had the most intriguing story and ability with horses. That’s all I want to say. See the film!


tCm: Who had the final word on the final cut? AD: Naturally, we wanted Patti’s approval or edits, first and foremost. Fortunately, Patti loved the first cut! PC: There was nothing to change…it was perfect. Better than I could ever have dreamed. And, you know, Calamity, I am very hands on about these projects, these people and these horses. My name is attached and therefore everything about it has got to reflect the best.


tCm: I haven’t seen the full documentary and am excited to see it for the first time on September 7 in Los Angeles, but I did watch the trailer online. Cried and laughed at the same time. Alex, what did, and do, you hope the viewing audiences will feel when they watch this film? AD: Compassion and a sense of empathy. Compassion driven people can see and feel compassion in others. PC: I want them to see that it takes great humans to help and care for great horses and that’s what the Extreme Mustang Makeover is all about. It’s about the horses.
