Here is a new doco that is currently in production based on international showjumper ROYAL KALIBER and the dramas surrounding the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. You might remember some of the controversy surrounding the 2004 Games, when several horses that were in strong medal contension broke down on an inadequate surface.

The stallion was a part of the US Show Jumping Team at the 2004 Athens Olympics, winners of the team silver medal. However, while jumping in the final round of the individual competition, the horse had an awkward landing from the 15th fence on course, a large oxer. His rider, ChrisKappler, felt his mount take an odd step and, with only two fences to go, pulled him up and dismounted.

I teared up just watching the trailer and am doing my best to track down the movie makers and distributors. Keep your fingers crossed that I can find it, as it looks amazing.
