Who are we:

Ivy Schexnayder and Sarah Olmstead have joined together as horse trainers and filmmakers.  They have always wanted to inspire others to have a deeper relationship with their horse. 

What are we doing:

Ivy and Sarah have written a script and are beginning work on a short film called Essence: Exploring the Horse-Human Relationship

What is the film about:

Essence is a short film that will explore the bond between horses and humans.  Essence will weave together inspirational quotes, soaring music, and magnificent horses and landscapes. In addition, Essence will explore what lies behind our universe and our desires for relationship: Is there something more? A greater force at work??
