Steve Halfpenny The Movie

"As I spend my time helping people with their horses, one thing that always sticks in the back of my mind is 'I wonder if they have any idea of what is possible, with the horse they already own". Steve Halfpenny

What if there was more to communicating with horses? Could you truly build a relationship of trust and confidence with your horse using feel, timing, balance, empathy and light hands? This is the new movie based on the life of Steve Halfpenny, the remarkable Australian horseman. 

"Soft Feel and Light Horses" is directed by award-winning filmmaker Elaine Heney, with music by the Grammy nominated Mary Ann Kennedy, and features the award-winning equine artist Tony O'Connor.  Many thanks to our sponsors Mitavite and Dash. 'Soft Feel and Light Horses' is now an award-winning movie, winning both the BEST DOCUMENTARY and BEST DIRECTOR Awards at the NYC Indie Film Awards in the USA.
