Kansas to California to Idaho and The Beauty of Being Ignored
It’s been so long since our last post! We’ve been so busy! Here’s a quick wrap up of where we’ve been and where we’re headed.
Ashland, Kansas: In May, the crew headed to Kansas to spend some time with cow horse trainer, Erin Taormino. I can’t say too much about the shoot cause we don’t want to let the cat out of the bag. ☺ Kansas really put on a show though with its endless grassy fields and gorgeous sunsets. Also, Ben was a hit with the mares!
Paso Robles, California: In June, we headed to a horse show in Paso Robles where we filmed for several days. The footage and interviews we were able to get surpassed our hopes. It was during this shoot that I realized something (and I never thought I’d saying this based on my own social personality) - how wonderful it is to be ignored! I’m not sure when this happened, but the cow horse community has just gotten used to us being there, so they go on about their business and it’s like we’re not even there. Or maybe they’re all just too focused on the horse show, either way, as documentarians, we couldn’t feel more pleased.
Bakersfield, California: After the horse show, we packed up and headed to Bakersfield where we spent some time with Doug and Carol Williamson. My favorite moment was when Doug flipped through one of his photo albums and told us little stories about each photo. Doug and Carol are lucky I don’t live close by. They’d never get rid of me. And don’t even get me started on his tack room! Gasp!
Caldwell, Idaho: In July, the crew headed to Caldwell for a visit with Jake Telford and his family. The shoot went very well! So far all of our shoots have been so great!
Fundraising: We're going to be reaching out for some financial help and will be starting a fundraising campaign later this month. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Filming: Ooooh it's the biggie! We're headed to Reno, Nevada to film at a world championships horse show, the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. It's going to be our most complex shoot so far and it will be all hands on deck with a few more added. We might even have a little booth space, so if you're there and we do, be sure to stop by and say hi!
