The story of redemption for a group of orphaned boys and girls in Brazil as they build relationship with one of the world’s most beloved animals: the horse. This story relates how Richard and Ingela Larsson Smith founded a new way of training and equipping young children for leadership, accountability and love by teaching them natural horsemanship. As the boys of Betel – formerly street children – begin to empathize with the horses, they discover the animals are suffering from rejection and abandonment… just like they are.
