Inspired from Bill Buford's book 'Among the Thugs: The Experience, and the Seduction, of Crowd Violence' a particular paragraph stood out to me regarding the herd mentality of crowds. Here Buford introduces a series of metaphors from historians, sociologists, criminologists, social psychologists & philosophers that define what a crowd is to them. Adapted for the chaos of city life and narrated by Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, this is my ode to nature.

Horsepower is the result of a personal filming trip to LaReata Ranch (lareataranch.com) in southern Saskatchewan, Canada last spring. It was very wet and the weather looked like it might win, but fortunate for them a small window without rain briefly appeared.
The rider in this short is George Gaber the owner of the Ranch. He is living his dream and has been doing so for over 20 years since leaving Germany to find the West. He finds his connection to the landscape with his horse.
