‘The horse team driven by liberty trainer Cody Rawson-Harris and Elbrus Ourtaev brought our wildly talented horses and the spirit of Black Beauty to life in ways I could never have imagined. The South African heartbeat simply resonates throughout our film with its joy, and I am so proud of what we have crafted. The journey has just begun. I can’t wait to debut the film and Anna Sewell’s powerful messages very soon.’
