An Evening to enjoy Horse Films

The EQUUS Film Festival has its annual event in New York City in November. This year’s event will be showcased again at the Village East Cinema and the nearby Pop-Up Gallery, November 17-20. During the year the energy created by this film festival continues at tour stops in the United States and throughout the world.

The most recent tour stop took place in Hudson, NY and benefited the High & Mighty Therapeutic Riding & Driving Center. An evening of horse films were showcased on the big screen, complete with popcorn, snacks and a chance to enjoy an evening with friends and family.

Helping People With Special Needs

High & Mighty Therapeutic Riding & Driving Center 501 (c) (3), located on 50 acres in Columbia County, NY, is focused on children, teens and adults with special needs. This non-profit organization offers riding, driving and other equine assisted activities. Their time spent with the horses often results in improved physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

The farm is a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) center dedicated to providing a welcome and safe environment for all participants, volunteers, instructors and horses alike. Together they help each other to enhance the lives of the special needs individuals and their families.

Laura Corsun, Founder and Executive Director, and Dianne Ortmann, Development Coordinator, were the force behind this evening of films.

An Evening Spent Enjoying Horse Films

A total of six films were shown including The Equestrian, Riding My Way Back, Black Turf Project, One Day, Albie: A Story from Back On Track, and Blind Spot: Moments Unseen.

Those present welcomed the opportunity to spend three hours watching movies focused around horses.

"These movies totally reinforce for me how significant horses are in our lives,” commented Kay Konove.

"I've never met a horse movie I didn't love!” remarked Jenny Post.

"The film festival takes the horse-human bond to another level, seen and unseen,” said Marissa Celli Hoe.

"I gained a greater understanding of how horses can help people and people can help horses,” added Jenny Post.

The EQUUS Film Festival offers a unique opportunity for anyone who has an interest in horses. While the main event takes place annually in New York City, a variety of tour stops take place throughout the U.S. and abroad.
