We’re sure our avid equine followers will be familiar with horse trainer Emma Massingale and the journeys we have been on together. From the outset, Emma has fascinated, inspired and left us in awe with her incredible way with horses. So when Emma first came to us with the immense idea of the The Island Project, the whole team began to get really excited.
The challenge Emma presented to us was for her to go back to Connemara, the homeland of her beloved Connies, to purchase two unbacked, unhanded ponies from the Connermara sales in Clifton, take theses two new ponies, along with four of her Connemara Liberty team, to a deserted island off the west coast of Ireland.
‘Piece of cake’ as Emma would say. We had roughly a year in which to make this plan work, the challenged of the ponies we left down to the expert, but capturing this incredible adventure was up to us and as it turned out a large part to Emma. After several discussion Emma felt that to be truly ‘alone’ on the island, she would have to be just that, alone. We decided that we would follow Emma’s journey from the purchase of the ponies, the long lorry drive, the ferry trip and the depositing of Emma and the six ponies on the island. After that, it was up to Em. With a handful of GoPros, a small high quality camera and a few other cool bits of filming kit we waved goodbye to Emma.
We kept in close contact with Emma throughout and when the month was finally up both our team and Emma had quite and emotional experience capturing those final goodbyes to the island that Emma had spent such a challenging month on.
When the rushes came back, our editor set to work re-telling the immense story of The Island Project. Everyone at Equine Productions is so proud of what we have managed to create and what a pleasure and a privilege it has been to work alongside the incredibly talented Emma Massingale.
We are sure you will love immersing yourself in The Island Project, experiencing the immense highs and lows that surviving on a deserted island brings. Once more here is the link to buy your very own copy of Island Project - enjoy!
