Synopsis: We’ve interviewed 4 female farriers in USA and Canada, in an effort to help spread the word about their dedication to the trade and commitment to keeping horses sound.
A mere 2 months after the release of a popular documentary highlighting women farriers, “Women, Steel & Fire” is gaining notoriety in the equine film industry.
The 2016 Equus Film Festival will feature the short documentary during its third annual event, Nov. 17-20 at the Village East Cinema in New York City.
“I’m really excited to know the documentary has been selected by the Equus Film Festival,” says Marguerite Paige, who wrote and produced the film for Delta Mustad Hoofcare Center. “I’ve enjoyed witnessing the positive response it’s generated amongst farriers.”
