I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
I watched Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies today. I had some down time at work and had it in my bag. I saw it a couple years ago and loved it. It really is a beautiful movie, very violent and hard to watch at times but really fascinating to watch horses interact. I had goosebumps more times than I could count. I think Ginger Kathrens, the filmaker, was so fortunate in finding this horse to follow. Besides his unique color, Cloud really had a dominant personality and it was so interesting to watch him take on horses much larger and older. Through the years of following the horses, Ginger adopts a mustang and rides him back among the herds. It showed a little of their bonding and training process. I thought that part of the movie was pretty cool. The DVD that I have has the follow up movie called "Clouds Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns" which I haven't seen before. Looking forward to watching that tonight before bed.
