The Wild Ones is a thrilling Canadian-original documentary series that follows an exceptional team of Xeni Gwet’in First Nation cowboys, ex-pat American settler Michael Lares, and horse trainer Mike Hawkridge, in their mission to save the majestic herd of wild Qayus horses in their midst.

In the Nemiah Valley – a pristine wilderness in B.C.’s Cariboo region – roams an elusive and magnificent herd of wild horses known as the Qayus, who have thrived here for centuries. However, climate change, the threat of overpopulation and an increase in natural predators are pitting horse against horse in a bitter fight for survival. The Xeni Gwet’in First Nation help restore and manage the population to sustainable levels by training and relocating some of the Qayus.

Tracking these noble creatures is no easy task. They are among the smartest, strongest, and rarest horses on the planet. Every day is an adventure – the ultimate test of a rider’s skill and determination. It’s a wild ride that demands limitless courage and nerves of steel.
