Hidden Acres Farm Feature
For the farm feature, it was an early shoot to catch that first golden light of day and the Tally Ho horses’ morning routine. We were there to capture their typical day - frolicking with their friends, eating their breakfast, while those who were designated to the morning tour shift got groomed and ready to go. Those who stayed behind often had time for some training which was both fascinating and entertaining to see.
As horse and carriage tours can sometimes be a controversial subject, one point that we wanted to make clear with this video was how well these animals are cared for, and as Kate puts it, their need to work to stay healthy both mentally as well as physically. It was easy to portray this message, for you could clearly see each horse’s personality shining through each day - including one sassy mare who loudly kicked the wooden fence until her breakfast was served.
We loved getting to know the team - both human and horse - at Tally-Ho, and encourage you to head down to the corner of Belleville and Menzies to meet them yourself!
