of the Horse
The evening featured special guests William Shatner, Ian Millar; Stratfords own Lucy Peacock, and a live audio feed from pop star Bryan Adams. A selection of great moments of the horse in film, television, mythology and popular music were meant to highlight the bond between humans and horses. These were chosen from an array of classics, including "Hollywood Loves Horses," "Ghost Racers in the Sky," and the recent Dreamworks production, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Dreamworks, a leading Hollywood film studio, received the Heroes of the Horse Award as the first public recognition of this blockbuster and instant horse film classic. Other distinguished recipients included:
Bryan Adams, for Music in "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron";
An exciting and entertaining event to grandstand a worthy cause made the inaugural Heroes of the Horse Awards a success. The second Heroes of the Horse Awards was announced for July 2003 to coincide with the premier of the movie, Seabiscuit, adapted from the best selling novel Seabiscuit: An American Legend, by author Laura Hillenbrand.
