Here’s an update on where we are with the HorseFlicks ‘Rare Breeds’ series, featuring the Akhal-Teke breed.
EAST COAST- As the last two possible sites didn’t work out, here is ONE LAST OPTION. We have been offered the chance to film at the Kentucky Horse Park on a ‘Breed Weekend’. I’ve sent an email to everyone that has mentioned they might be interested, but please share this with anyone else that I might have missed.
WEST COAST- We’re going to be nailing down the date and place in the next few days. We’ve gotten a good response, but the more the merrier!
MID WEST- We’re gotten a few more horses that will come to the Conference for filming, so that is looking good.
MONEY- yes, money. We’ve had a great outpouring of support and have had over $3050 pledged so far, but that is a long way from $5800. Please, any amount will help! If you’re not sure what kind of production HorseFlicks can do, email me and I’ll send you a copy of the last one that was done, so you can see for yourself. The Akhal-Teke Horseflicks episode is one of their most popular and is still being played on National TV, 5 years after it was made, according to Jon Mays, the film director. This one could be even better. If you can pledge an amount, please contact me, Cathy Leddy at [email protected] or Terri Fender at [email protected]
TIME TO SEND CHECKS- And on that note, everyone that has pledged money, please send it to the ATAA Treasurer, Amrita Ibold, 2097 W. Valley Road, Friday Harbor, WA 98250. Make sure you mark what the check is for. Even if you can only do $20, those small amounts add up! So please, let us know what you can do.
Thank you to everyone!
Cathy, Tish and Terri
