I would like to take a moment of your time to introduce to you our new feature-length epic documentary, The Caravan Film. As many of you are aware, the Caravan drive took place last winter, starting in Murrieta, California and finishing at The Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, Florida five months later. It was an amazing journey and to top off the adventure, the film premiered in New York City, November 21st and won Best of Festival at the Equus Film Festival.
The Caravan Film is the story of a group of strangers, united by their love of the horse, who embark on a transcontinental horse driven and ridden journey across the American South. The film beautifully captures the vastness of the American landscape, the connections these travelers made along the way, and the personal growth each individual experienced. More then just a story about horses and people, it leaves the viewer inspired to seek and experience their own journey, venture out with their equines, push preconceptions of their own limitations, and test their sense of adventure.
A big THANK YOU to The American Driving Society for all your support in helping to promote our film to the driving community.
