My longtime friend, Sheri Bylander has produced and directed a marvelous documentary that I hope you’ll check out. It’s called “Homestrech” and it tells the story of two groups –prisoners and outcast horses– and the hopeful things that happen when they get together.
Here’s what the website says about it:
Homestretch documents the mutual rehabilitation of outcast horses and prisoners. When top-pedigree racehorses fail to earn, they face slaughter or punishing two-bit racing circuits. Alternatively, a few progressive prison farms are pairing rescued thoroughbreds with jail-hardened men. The transformation in man and beast challenges stereotypes of incarceration and so-called “losers.”
Watch the trailer here.
It’s QUITE good. I hope you’ll spread the word about Homestretch.
