The Rare Equine Trust films explore utterly
unique relationship between man and horse.
The Horsefly Films Rare Equine Trust is a cinematic library dedicated to exploring diverse cultures, rare equine breeds and unique stories centered around the horse.
The film series captures the beauty, history and fragile position of equines and vanishing equestrian cultures and establishes a compelling film folio for equine enthusiasts, cultural historians and general audiences.
The Trust's films are being used to rally awareness, build cultural bridges and connect societies with their unique and often endangered equine and ritual heritage. ENGAGEMENT
mankind built civilizations on the backs of horses
we owe our victories, our survival & our enriched culture to the noble horse.
Our fervent hope is this ongoing film library will contribute to an epic cinematic record that can help transmute these fragile and threatened horse cultures into national treasures to be cherished by local communities and venerated by those of us further afield.
Despite modern technology making horses obsolete for many, the debt to history remains. From the sword to the plowshare, horses are an integral part of who we are, of who we became, and it is our duty to preserve that bond.
WE CAN highlight the precarious position of many of these breeds
and the people who are trying to save them
by bringing their unique histories to the screen.
Using the equine as a central focus on humankind's saga brings into sharp focus our agrarian and warlike histories, our spiritual connections and the ongoing battle to preserve our unique heritage in the face of rapid globalization.
