Best Horse Documentaries – You don’t want to miss
You’ve had a long day. The demands and obligations of everyday life pull you from what you really want to do- be with your horse. But the passion that drives you is still there. But how do you stay motivated to keep at it? Especially as it gets harder and harder to afford horses. To keep this lifestyle afloat. At times, it’s hard to be inspired to keep going. My hope for this article is that as you rest your tired bones on the couch that you let these documentaries inspire you to keep going with your passion.
They tell the stories we want to hear and remind us why we do what we do.
It is where the pavement hits the road. Whether it’s a champion jumping horse found in a kill pen or one of the greatest horseman of the century surviving a brutal childhood. It’s the human emotion wrapped up in the smell and feel of a horse. You can’t resist it.
The horses you love. The people you learned from. It’s all wrapped up in us and keeps us going with horses.
Hope you enjoy this list of the best horse documentaries you won’t want to miss.
