Following the words of the late Winston Churchill, “there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man,” David’s new film focuses on the therapeutic relationships between individuals with disabilities and horses.

“Horses don’t judge by appearance,” David said. “They look past peoples’ disabilities and recognize the emotions inside. A horse is a Mirror of the Soul.”

David explained that horseback riding provides physical and emotional therapy for individuals with blindness, Cerebral Palsy, Bipolar Disorder, or any other disability. Riding, touching, and even grooming the horse can provide an outlet for anyone struggling to overcome their disability.
