Emmy Award-winning mustang documentarian Ginger Kathrens will give a talk about equine behavior on Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016 at the University of Montana Western.
Kathrens is best known for her mustang documentary films, “Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies,” “Cloud’s Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns,” and “Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions.”
In the films, Kathrens follows the Palomino stallion, Cloud, and a herd of wild mustangs in Montana’s Pryor Mountains.
Her films have been featured on the Discovery channel, Animal Planet, National Geographic, BBC and PBS.
“We are very excited to have Ginger Kathrens visit our campus,” Horseman’s Club Vice-President Katrina Panec said. “Our hope is to give insight to horse owners about what their horses are trying to communicate through body language, which will improve their horsemanship skills and the overall training relationship.”
The talk will focus on equine behavior, referencing specific footage from her films and the context for their actions.
Kathrens also wrote the award-winning book, “Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies.” In addition, she created the Cloud Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing awareness to the Pryor Mountain mustangs and raising resources for their well-being.
The event will take place in the Swysgood Technology Center Great Room at 6:30 p.m. and is free to students and community members. Refreshments will be provided.
Kathren’s appearance is sponsored by the equine studies department and equine-oriented clubs on the Montana Western campus.
