Horse Medicine A Work in Progress by Director James Anaquad Kleinert.
From the Director/Cinematographer of the internationally acclaimed awarding winning documentary film Wild Horses & Renegades come the highly anticipated series Horse Medicine! Horse Medicine explores the profound human and horse relationship from ancient myth to modern science. This inspirational documentary film reconnects our hearts with the power of the horse and majesty of Mother Earth. With over ten years of footage capturing the healing power of horses on a global scale, Horse Medicine takes viewers on a journey from the rugged American West to spectacular Norwegian fjords and the South of France. Along the way, insight is offered by Hollywood stars, profound teachings from gifted and inventive equestrians, and scientific data from leading horse therapy professionals, life lessons from Indian elders and a real world perspective from today’s cowboys. Accompanying these explosive interviews are select scenes from one of the most dynamic contemporary western horse film archives.
The magnificent healing power of the horse can be found anywhere galloping hooves greet the earth, and the unlimited resources of this animal are being studied and documented globally. The data behind their therapeutic benefits is vast and continually growing. Interviews with experts reveal shocking discoveries that show the incredible health advantages for people of all ages and circumstances. Join war veterans as they learn to cope with fear, frustration and vulnerability through the challenge of a horse. Witness children blossom from their insecure states after years of abuse under the unconditional love of a horse. Experience the profound improvement of people with mental illnesses with the patience of a horse. These strong, loving creatures have been assisting in man’s success since the birth of their relationship, and Horse Medicine documents, not only the touching stories, but the science behind why this works.

Through living the life of a respected documentary filmmaker and horseman, director James Anaquad Kleinert has unique access to hard-to-reach places and little known corners of the natural world as well as a large, solid network of people in the horse world in the U.S. and abroad. From the back of a horse, he has shot countless hours of astonishing footage showing wild horses in their natural environment as well as the work currently being done to expand the amazing benefits for physical and mental health. He maintains a massive film library in regard to horses and natural environments that contains enough material to attract audiences for years to come.
Director’s note: "After touring with our award winning film Wild Horses & Renegades it became apparent that there is a need for a spectacular documentary film celebrating the human-horse relationship; a film that inspires us to create that authentic heart-felt bond with majestic, sentient beings. Horses have an unusual ability to help us slow down, connect and find inner peace. I truly believe that this beautiful documentary film will empower humans in their daily lives and in doing so, motivate us to make stronger connections with each other and Mother Earth.” Horse Medicine will raise awareness of equine programs, educational causes and contemporary environmental issues all culminating to connect us to a ground state of earth wisdom.
