This will place the entire EQUUS Film & Arts Fest Team in California. The Equine community has reached out and we have accepted the invitation to host the 10th Anniversary Edition of the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest in beautiful Sacramento, California at the historic Guild Theater. Equine Network will be onsite throughout the event.

This year’s Fest will be an educational and fun filled “Mustang Focused” event. With tours and parties planned at local Napa and Sonoma area wineries. The EQUUS “Literary Corral” will be headed up by California based Children’s book EQUUS Author Rae Rankin who will bring her creativity and passion to the event.

The Sacramento area has a large and very active equestrian community with every discipline represented! From Horse Racing to Reining, and Eventing to Polo we will be bringing the 2022 Film, Art & Literary entries to this amazing and diverse equestrian community. We will be joined by “Lead Change”, 2022 EQUUS Film Entry, Polo Documentary star, Dale Johnson. Others who will be attending include Mustang Discovery Ride, “Guest Mustang Rider”, Neda DeMayo, Executive Director of Return to Freedom Mustang Sanctuary.

There will be a focus and conversation on the effects of “Climate Change” in the horse world. The weather has played an important, and sometimes difficult, part of the Mustang Discovery Ride Project as they are moving across the country, from the bitter cold and icy snow in West Virginia to the 107’ temps in Kansas.
