Horses: The Story of Equus

bigImage On a warm, spring night, three foals are born. Among the tens of thousands that will enter the world this year, these three are destined for unpredictable lives. The Chestnut filly will take the long, hard road of work and training to become a racehorse. The Bay colt will enter the grueling world of event sporting, only to fall, then find his true home in the movies. And the Black colt will be lost to humans forever, when he escapes to join the herds that live in the mountain wilderness. For sixty centuries, we have ridden on the backs of horses as their strength and willingness changed the course of civilizations across the world. Now, they depend on us for their survival.

With art, science and drama, HORSES: THE STORY OF EQUUS shows why this is a debt we owe to the noblest animal of them all.
