That would say this horse

could never be broken.

Discipline, time, and patience.

Are the three great levelers.

Sometimes a horse's gotta do,

what a horse's gotta do

And this was one of those times.

Get off me!

Soldier! Secure that horse!

I wasn't sure

what happened back there.

And I wasn't about to stop and ask.

All I knew was I was headed home.

I couldn't believe it.

One moment I was free,

and the next... more ropes.

I couldn't understand it.

She treated the scrawny two-legged

Like one of our kind.

Prancing around him

Like a love struck ear ring.

It was down right unnatural.

Great mustang, today I will ride you.

This ought to be good...


Okay, Rain, lets see if you can teach

This mustang some manners.

Okay, I admit it

She was charming

In a stubborn, irritating kind of way.

So, I let her show me her world.

Bye-Bye horsey.

For the first time in my life,

I felt my heart torn two ways.

Give it back!


I had to hand to that boy.

He just wouldn't give up.

I'm never gonna ride you, am I?

And no one never should.

You can go.

It's okay, go.

Go on, get out of here.

Go home.

I knew this was hard for her,

and she was scared.

But more than anything,

I wanted to share my homeland with her

I laid beside her that night.

Hoping, praying that somehow

she would be okay.

There are a couple

of horses over there!

Leave her there.

She's not gonna make it.

Oh, Rain!

Easy, girl.


It will be okay.

You saved my life.

I'm not gonna hurt you.

Come on, it's gonna be okay.

It'll be alright.

I didn't know

why we were brought here.

What I did know

was we had to find a way to escape,

and get back home.

Well, that is it, we're rolling

the steam over the mountain.

We got six days to connect to Utah.
