Horses (and Burros) (cc)

Horses (and Burros) (cc)

Horses have been a part of America's driving spirit since its earliest days, and they remain so today. In this horse's lover's program we begin by learning about polo horses, visiting with members of the Denver Polo Club. Then members of the Colorado Dept. of Corrections introduce us to a unique management program for wild horses and burros by prison inmates. We meet the former coach of the NBA's Denver Nuggets, Dan "The Horse" Issel, who explains why he loves horses and thoroughbred racing. We meet professional calf ropers and some champion horses at a calf-roping event, which continues to be popular in modern-day rodeos. Then we join the fun of the annual Burro Days' event in Fairplay, Colorado, which since 1948 has been celebrating the role of the burro in mining days of old. We are offered an explanation of the unique sport of burro racing, which confirms the teamwork required between man and beast. 01/10DE/CC Closed-Captioned IJSCA 30 min.
