After a terrible car accident involving his family, 12-year-old Mark is sent to live with his aunt Fiona (Seymour) on a beautiful and remote island. Isolated from most of the world, Fiona and a park ranger are the only human inhabitants of this wind-swept island, home to herd of wild horses. Her reclusive personality makes Marks new life on the island difficult but he soon begins to see the beauty of the nature and the animals around them including the horses they are forbidden to touch. When the mother of a young colt is killed, Mark breaks the rules and begins to feed and nurture the young animal. At first Fiona is furious but as she and Mark begin to create their own family bonds, she helps him to keep the horse from starving and each learns lessons from the other about compassion, faith and family ties.

They are on an island that she is always struggling to keep her rights to stay there. The govt would like her off the island. They have a warden on the island and he checks on her all the time. BUT the other occupants of the island are wild horses. They are the reason she is there. The horses are legislated for in a heavy way. They are not allowed to be touched, fed, ridden. They are not supposed to have any interaction with humans. But the woman and boy are building a relationship of love slowly. She has a secret past where she had a child and it was taken from her and adopted because she was and unwed mother. She has chosen the horses to be her family but the boy sneaks her heart too. A horse is drowned on the shores of the island by the rubbish nets fishermen leave. But the horse has a foal that is alive and needs feeding and care. The law says it should have to live or die. That would be legal but the boy decides it is not right. So they enter into a secret relationship of caring for the horse and setting it free when it can survive with the herd.
Touching Wild Horses is a very touching tale. The acting is so good. Jane Seymour is her usual beyond comment perfection. The boy is very good too. But the horses are out of this world. Not typical anything but very, very beautiful.

Of course Mark breaks that rule as he is adjusting to seeing nature ,and a young colt thats lost his mother , surival ,from the compassion of a young boy , who through his lost helps the colt to live and helps his aunt fiona to find her family love ,faith , compassion for family.
