Press Release – The Path of the Horse screening and workshop in New York

Sugar Loaf, New York- Within eleven days of release of the ground breaking documentary “The Path of the Horse,” more than 18,000 YouTube viewers were inspired by filmmaker Stormy May as her film introduced a new level of equine-human relationships never before seen in the United States.

On Friday November 2nd, the film will premiere on the big screen in an intimate limited-seating environment at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center pavilion in Sugar Loaf, New York. Originally released in 2008 as an independent film, The Path of the Horse chronicles May’s international quest to find new non-violent ways to work with horses. What she discovered on her around-the-world journey is documented in 5 vignettes of stunning imagery and revealing personal accounts from the equine trainers, advocates, and experts who have begun their own equine journey anew, all with a profound message to share.

The Path of the Horse movie“This film beautifully illustrates an alternative to the traditional training methods we have all become so accustomed to,” says May. “Even the most hardened traditional trainers are stunned to see the deeply connected relationships these five visionaries have achieved with their horses.” The on-location interviews were filmed in Denmark, Arizona, Russia, California, and Colorado, portraying each with their horses while sharing some of their own journeys with them.

Immediately following this special screening, attendees will benefit from a workshop with Stormy, where open discussion and personal interaction will provide inspiration to share the film’s message of the deeply emotional and intelligent connection our horses offer as we begin to understand more about them.

Friday, November 2nd. Doors open at 6 pm, film starts at 7pm.

Since it’s original release, The Path of the Horse has gained a worldwide audience and started a movement beyond the traditional ideas of horsemanship. In response, May has founded a group called OurHorses with a mission of expanding the future of horse-human relations without violence and providing sanctuary to horses and humans. Her recently released book, The Path of the Horse: from Competition to Compassion, documents the research she did for the movie as well as stories from her own journey in the years since the release.

I am so glad to be a part of this journey…terrified…relieved…full of dreams… The new is never easy. But thank goodness I’m not on my own. And one day I will dance with my horses. And for the first time in 20 years I am reaching out to horses again like they are strange to me, but beautiful and enchanting. I am a child again, and hey, that’s scary, but also full of new light and colour. Thank you. The Path of the Horse is a huge Beginning.
