The film will have all access to the main subjects and also interviews with others who were a part of this inspirational tale, including the doctors who examined Valiant during his illness, and the world’s most trusted horseman who helped Jeanette with training Valiant after he went blind, Valiant’s farrier who acknowledges Valiant as the reason he recovered from paralysis and others who have their own special story and connection with Valiant. We’ll learn how high the odds were against Valiant living any kind of normal life, and how far he’s gone beyond that learning the very difficult discipline of dressage—something that, even when sighted, he was evaluated as being physically and temperamentally unsuited for.
Valiant, the documentary is not just about a story of a blind horse, it’s the story of the people and lives he has changed. How people truly receive from Valiant the support and message they need…hope, inspiration, love and courage to mention a few. Valiant awakens emotions and one doesn’t know why but only that it feels good and feels right. To Jeanette, this horse has changed her life in the most positive way and he has helped others on their own journey.
