So this doesn't really come under the normal topics of advertising, but it should do!
I'm looking for decent TV shows (documentaries as well as story driven, provided they don't have shockingly bad dialogue...) that feature horses.
I think one of the biggest problems I face in trying to understand equine anatomy is that I don't have a live subject to study. 80% of the "best" artists in the horse-art community have either their own horse/pony or access to one (work with them or co-own, or manage a facility or whatever). In the same way that I feel more comfortable coming up with new poses and such of feline characters (because I owned a cat for years and have access to them) I lack that confidence when it comes to equines.
There's only so much that can be gathered from static pictures, actually seeing the range of movements, how those parts behave in three dimensional space - there's no substitute for that.
So my request to the community at large is to help me find resources that will help fill that void.
Travelling to an equine facility and asking to just sit and watch the horses/sketch them etc has often been suggested to me; for a whole plethora of reasons, it's not practical.
Please provide suggestions of TV shows, something like The Dog Whisperer but for horses, or any documentaries on equines would be preferred, I'm dubious of story-driven/drama genre horse shows as, well, they're just not my cup of tea. I'm more about the science here... I'm also in my late 20's so overtly kiddy stuff isn't going to help - I could always watch it muted I suppose but that's clutching at straws.
Thanks in advance!
