US Equestrian and the producers of the new equestrian documentary “Desert Flight” invite you to the film’s USEF Network premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The 39-minute documentary, a love letter to equestrian sport that examines the joy horses bring to our lives, will stream free on demand for US Equestrian members on USEF Network. To take advantage of this special opportunity, go to US Equestrian or sign up for a free fan membership using the promo code DESERTFLIGHT.
“Desert Flight,” which received awards for Best of Festival and Best Sports Documentary at the EQUUS Film Festival in September, follows the stories of several top jumping athletes and reveals how they got their start in horses and why they love equestrian sport. Riders appearing in the film include Olympic team gold medalist Will Simpson, Richard Spooner, Rich Fellers, Ashlee Bond, and Mandy Porter. Impressive desert scenery serves as the backdrop for horses and riders as they aim to peak for the AIG $1 Million Grand Prix at the end of the 2017 HITS Thermal winter circuit.
