The story behind the mustangs of the West

Wild horses stand in a group.
Ashley Ahearn

The West has tens of thousands of wild horses. And sometimes it seems there are almost as many opinions on what to do with them.

In a new podcast Mustang, Ashley Ahearn examines controversies surrounding the horses -- and works to train one.

This series for the Mountain West News Bureau is adapted from her podcast. In part one, she introduces us to these wild horses and the myths surrounding them.
