Ascencion: Sunday December 4, 2022 @ 4:00 PM
This film chronicles the story of a 13-year-old boy who leaves his 13 siblings and his home in Lobatos, Mexico and risks his life to cross the river into the U.S., where he believes all things are possible. Against all odds and defying the limitations placed on Mexicans, Ascencion will become one of the greatest horsemen of his time. Through years of sacrifice, hard work, and proving himself to be extraordinary in a world of ordinary, Ascencion has gained world renown as a champion cutting horse competitor, earning nearly $2.5 million and is the first Mexican American to be inducted into the National Cutting Horse Assoc. Hall of Fame. This is the story of guts, grit, and the triumph of one man who broke through racial and economic barriers to set a new precedent in the competitive cutting horse world – a world where Mexicans were only found cleaning stalls, washing, and saddling horses, but never among the respected competitors.
