Wild horses are gentled at the Warm Springs Correctional Center, a minimum security prison.  Hank Curry has run the horse training program for more than 5 years.  He has selected 500 horses, only 5 had to be returned.  Many have been adopted and are ridden.  The horses and inmates learn life lessons.  Horses learn from repetition and adjust to new things. As Hank says, "It's about as exciting as watching paint dry.  We bore them into submission."
