HORSE IN SPORT: EVENTING
At home with Mark Todd, Virginia Leng and Bruce Davidson we learn what fascinates them about eventing: the challenge of keeping a horse fit and able to excel in the dressage, cross-country and show jumping phases. Magnificent slow motion film captures the excitement and beauty of horse and rider in action.
In Australia, for the World Championships at Gawler, cameras were at the center of the action on cross-country day, and were caught up in the fortunes of three riders... in particular, Todd, Leng and Torrance Fleischmann each with very different experiences over the infamous water jump.
But this is not the story of one event, it is the story of all events: the months of training, the danger, the frustration, the sheer gamble of it all; and of course the unique, almost indescribable satisfactions, the harmony between horse and rider that is its own reward.
This video is part of the "Horse in Sport" Series recognizably the finest documentary series ever produced about horses and horse people; the seven equestrian disciplines represented in this acclaimed series each stand alone in their spectacular photography, music and narration. No equestrian library would be complete without this timeless collection.
