Prisoners Training Wild Horses
Prisoners Training Wild Horses

AIR DATE: August 16, 2011

Stewart Conservation Camp is home to men who have stumbled upon rough patches in life: drinking, drugs, and small-time crime.  But the minimum-security prison is also home to wild horses.  The inmates learn to harness wild horses, and train them so they're ready for sale.  The cowboy who runs the program says it's a fast, hard-knock lesson in discipline and patience for the inmates.  But he says it also turns boys into men.  We talk to trainers and an inmate about how they train wild horses, and what happens after the inmates and the horses bond.
