The Pal-O-Mine documentary was prompted by The Olympic Channel who chose 2016 Olympic Silver Medalist Lucy Davis to visit Pal-O-Mine where she learned about its programs and facilities and attended its annual horse show. It was filmmaker/director Vanessa Hudson from Vice Media in NYC who captured the true essence of Pal-O-Mine on film. The film was so well-received that it was selected by the Equus Film Festival for three categories of recognition: “Best Documentary Short,” “Best Director” and “Horses Helping Humans.” Additionally, Inspired By Sport: Pal-O-Mine Equestrian has the distinction of being selected to be screened at the prestigious American Documentary and Animation Film Festival taking place March 27-31, 2020 Palm Springs, California (https://www.amdocfilmfest.com/). The Pal-O-Mine documentary will have its world premier at this festival on March 27th.
