Equus Film Festival
Thursday’s welcome gathering was hosted at “The Wild Horses of Sable Island” gallery. Find more information about the gallery here: https://www.dutescoart.com/wild-horses-of-sableisland-gallery.html
In addition to films of all types, there were informative panels on such topics as: iPhone camera class; the Gobi Gallop and other interesting rides; from book to screenplay to film; international equine film directors; American equine documentary filmmaker; today’s equine issues; Mustangs; book to video series; and the Knabstrupper horse – a Danish breed of horse with an unusual range of coat coloration, from solid to full leopard-spotted coat.
There were optional Carriage Horses Stables tours of Clinton Park Stables on West 52nd Street, originally built in the 1880s to house some of the city’s sanitation and streets department horses. It was fully renovated in 2003. Horses live on the second and third floors, and are bedded with straw from a Pennsylvania mushroom farmer, who collects the manure to grow organic mushrooms.
