Meet the Herd: Brooke USA and The Gobi Gallop "Solo Style" in Conversations with Douglas B. Maddox and Julie Veloo
Play • 54 min

Tune in to Episode 2 of our second season to hear about two special occasions in October involving our filmmakers and partners. Films For a Cause is an online fundraising movie event featuring the premiere of Hope's Legacy. This episode includes a delightful chat with Douglas B. Maddox, the director and producer, on the making of the movie which deals with Lizzie’s strong emotions after the death of her grandmother; her obligations to the farm and her horses, and an upcoming three-day eventing competition. Lizzy must learn to stand on her own two feet but with Legacy, her horse, by her side she can do it. The movie premiere on the Equus Film Channel serves as a fundraiser for Brooke USA and kicks-off The Power of ONE, a one year campaign to raise $1 million for Brooke USA, recognizing that one donation can change the life of an equine, a person or a community. Brooke USA raises funds to support a wide variety of programs for working horses, donkeys and mules to help them become (and remain) healthy and happy, now and in the long-term, which also benefits the poor families who depend on those animals to help them earn a living. Movie tickets, $25 and $150, are available to purchase at Tune in to Brooke USA On The Road podcast for more information from Board Members and Ambassadors for the organization.

Welcoming families. Traditional culture. Epic History. Untamed adventure. Stunning scenery.  Wild open steppe.  Last surviving horse culture on the planet.
