Through their world-class scientists, photographers, journalists, and filmmakers, Nat Geo gets you closer to the stories that matter and past the edge of what's possible. One example is the annual “Round Up,” when the family joins with a group of wranglers to herd their horses to lower elevations for the winter. This exhaustive three-day ritual could be simplified with modern technology, but the practice endures as a testimony to their way of life. In this short film by Kristopher Rey-Talley, join the Kelsey family in Montana as they embark on their yearly trip with the horses through the land they cherish. 9 Quarter Circle Ranch: https://www.ninequartercircle.com/ Kristopher Rey-Talley: http://www.krisreytalley.com/ Wrangling Wild Horses in the Mountains of Montana | Short Film Showcase https://youtu.be/vkBtEe-lieU National Geographic https://www.youtube.com/natgeo

Driven by his love for horses, Kameron Kelsey makes a living at the 9 Quarter Circle Ranch spending time with these magnificent animals. What are your thoughts on Kameron's way of life?

The way to learn more about yourself. Horses are just a mirror, sometimes you won't like what you see...sometimes you will.

I'd cherish everyday to have this lifestyle, I've always dreamt about owning my own horse ranch one day but it's hard to get into one if you weren't born into it.
An enviable way of life

My grandfather had a horse that broke its leg once. He refused to euthanize her, he nursed her back to health and she lived to an old age. I hate how everyone thinks a broken leg is a death sentence. It isn’t always, it is possible in some cases to get through if you’re diligent. It’s sad for me to hear when people do it not realizing is is possible to recover from. But not always, it of course does depend on how bad the break is.

National Geographic... Very good video... I also grew up around horses and there is no bond in life quite like it. The most horses that I ever looked after was 20, so nowhere near what Kameron is doing...but have to say that some of my life's best memories were during those times. Handling as many horses as he is truly amazing … reminds me of the Snowy River film. He is one very talented Horseman…

My experience with cowboys are they are extremely violent with everything in their lives. I am so scared for any animal who has to just be next to any cowboys!! I've seen them do things that made me throw up but they all said I don't have the stomach for the horse world. Again my personal experience.

This video took me back to when I was a boy and spent my summers on the ranch. There I learned the way of the Vaquero. As young as I was I knew in my heart it was the life I wanted. I begged my mother to let me stay on the ranch with my uncle in Mexico. I'm 36 now and slowly getting back to that way of life.

Brittany Kopman (10 months ago)
franky jjj , yes, check out the documentary "unbranded" to learn about true wild horses, their struggles, and the people who try and tame them.
Zero Paja (10 months ago)
Brittany Kopman am confused now! So there is wild horses? Why are they call wild horses? Are they mean towards people?
Brittany Kopman (10 months ago)
franky jjj , ha yes the title is a bit misleading. these are actually Appaloosa breeding stock, he mentions they breed/raise them for the ranch, right in the beginning of the video. They just raise them similar to the way true wild horses are raised, by letting them roam relatively free.
Susan Stone (10 months ago)
Lovely story but the title is misleading, these are not "wild" horses, they are a dude string of broke horses that are used every season on guest ranch.

VeganVixen (10 months ago)
It's great that he acknowledges the sentience and personalities of horses, but I'm sad to see that he fails to recognize that the personhood of sentient beings means that it is unethical to exploit them as "property". Horses don't live for our purposes, they live for their own. They want to live, enjoy life, and live it on their own terms. They do not want to be dominated, owned, controlled, forced into a state of learned helplessness, movements controlled by discomfort/pain in the mouth.... This is romanticized oppression. Animals are not things to own, they are individuals with the right to their own lives.
