Working on film graphics and animation
Reined cow horse isn't an equestrian discipline easily explained. It's complicated—four stages of training, three events, and all the complexities of each event. With everyone working on the film, we needed a quick way to explain it that would be better then, "so like, the horse should be about here on the cow when going down the fence, but like, right before the first turn, they should be right about heeeeere, and...."
Solution? Toys and poster board. And voila! An example fence work in stop motion! Not fancy, but whatever works right?
