Equinisity Retreats

  • Filmed entirely on location at an Equinisity Retreat on 320 acres of sacred land near Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
    Herd explores how horses can guide us to heal the chaos within our lives.
    During a weeklong off-grid nature retreat, deep in the heart of British Columbia's horse country, eight people participate in a collective spirit quest of meditation and equine therapy.

    The film documents a nascent, interspecies community where horses and humans share fears, doubts and truths as they form a new hybrid herd. The horse/human communication transcends language to foster a dialogue of shared mindfulness.
