Product Description


 Spanish Riding School

Location: Spain, 2010

An original work from Elizabeth Shatner's Art by Nature: The Unbridled Collection



In the spring of 2010, the Shatners travelled to Marbella, Spain, to attend the Marbella Film Festival where Bill’s documentary “Gonzo Ballet” won an award for “Best Documentary”. They were able to take a “side trip” to a Spanish riding school where they were invited by the school’s head trainer to share a training session with one of his prized pupils. It was a rarity and an honor to be allowed to capture this intimate, behind-the scenes moment.

Interesting footnote: Spain is among several European countries where the art of horsemanship is preserved and funded by the government, thus ensuring that the traditional art of high school dressage endures. The skills these horses learn are derived from the historical Spanish war horse maneuvers, which have evolved into modern dressage competitions. At the military level, the Iberian horses and their trainers are so advanced that they form an elite group unmatched in the world. The inter- species communication and partnership that is necessary to perform these skilled maneuvers is amazing to Elizabeth, and is thus an inspiration for her art.

Note: Product is a 1.25" deep gallery-wrapped canvas, made form archivable and UV-resistant materials, that may be hung directly on your wall or framed."
