Untamed Legacy: America’s Wild Mustang
Focusing on the wild mustang’s survival and struggles as resources diminish, Untamed Legacy: America’s Wild Mustang chronicles a mustang named Charlie on his journey from the wild to his new home in Alabama, and all the people whose lives he touches along the way – including students from the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy. Mustang Leadership Partners adopted Charlie from the Bureau of Land Management and trainer Ed Dabney worked with him for 100 days in preparation for the October 2009 Extreme Mustang Makeover in Murfreesboro, TN. Charlie’s transformation is showcased in the film, along with many other inspirational stories from mustang trainers and advocates in Tennessee, Alabama, Nevada and New Mexico.
Untamed Legacy: America’s Wild Mustang is narrated by Jack Perkins, best known for his work with NBC News and as host of AE’s Biography, and is produced by Emmy Award winner Jen Noble. WTCI is the producing PBS station of this documentary. In 2012, at the 26th Annual Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards, Untamed Legacy won three Emmy awards in the Documentary, Writing and Photography categories.
