Gabi and her friends at the Oklahoma City Stockyards put together a special screening of the film that both Bryant and Jennie were able to attend. It was a special night to see themselves and Arrow’s story up on the big screen. The feedback we’ve gotten is that people are inspired by Arrow’s story and are now aware of this special breed and the actions we can take to protect them. Gabi will be taking some key meetings in the next month to forward Arrow’s mission. Good stuff! Stay tuned for more. Meanwhile, don’t forget you can see Arrow’s doc in the Garden State Film Festival soon!
We’re thrilled to share that because Arrow was so well received at Equus Fest, the organizers included it in their partnership with the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. Our short will be part of a special selection available to Expo attendees. Next month in Denver:
“New for 2022: EQUUS Film & Arts Fest Every horse has a story, it’s our mission at the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest to share those stories, through film, art, and literature. The Art Show and Literary Corral will be part of a larger promotion at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo under the Promotional Direction of the EQUUS Film and Art Fest.”
We got into our second festival! We’re very excited that it’s Garden State Film Festival because Gabi, Arrow’s person, grew up there so it feels very fitting. You’ll be able to see the film there this spring. Here’s more info: https://www.gsff.org/
And here is the Winnie that we won for Best Wild Horse Short from Equus Fest. Arrow just keeps galloping into people’s hearts!
Equus Fest awarded Arrow’s story a Winnie for Best Wild Horse Short Film! We’re off to the races!
Equus fest just shared their festival and ticket information with us.

Honored to be chosen by Equus Film & Arts Fest!
Arrow always wanted to compete in endurance races. It’s what he was built for. He finally got his chance with Gabi in his last years and was so proud to wear his ribbons and hear the cheering of the crowd.
At last our documentary is finished! It’s being entered in film festivals around the world starting now. Stay tuned for a screening near you!
Rounding out his story is the music of multi-instrumentalist Ted Wulfers. Check out more of Ted’s wide ranging work over many albums of Americana, folk, rock, and blues here: https://www.tedwulfers.com/
Thank you to all our supporters who made this story possible. We could not have done this without you.
After a frustratingly long period of getting ducks in a row, I’m happy to share things are finally moving toward a finished product. We’ve partnered with Emmy winning executive producers Charming Stranger Productions to get us over the finish line. Thanks to them, our editor is hard at work and Charming Stranger is helping us with a festival strategy and much more.
Additionally, we have been taken on by From The Heart Productions as a fiscal sponsor in order to accept donations. You can find our funding page here if you’d like to help.
There are good things ahead for Arrow and his kin. Thanks for being part of it!
In one of many “that’ll never get better” obstacles that Gabi worked with Arrow to overcome and heal, his feet were a big deal. A painful mess when she rescued him, this is the story of how she helped them heal.
After a fast-paced five days, I’m back in LA with a heart full of horses and drives full of footage. My ten-year-old self was in heaven at moments like a herd of half-wild horses swirling around me as Bryant Rickman called them out to greet us. Our Seed&Spark campaign is complete and now it’s time to shape this story with an amazing edit. I know this next part will be a challenge because we have so much good stuff to choose from. Here’s to challenges worth our time.
