This short (3 minute) animated film by British director Rebecca Manley speaks for itself. So we won't tarnish it with an attempt to summarize its wordless brilliance here. But we will say this. We often hear from readers who rode horses during their youth, then drifted away from the horse world as they entered adulthood. Some have returned to horses and others aspire to do so, but they universally found that nothing could take the place of horses in their hearts. If that story sounds familiar, this film will resonate with you.

The Girl and The Horse

The unique style of The Girl and the Horse is a form of stop-motion animation done using sand on glass along with some photographic elements. You can find out more about the filmmaker on her website,
