Brandon Strings “Music for Your Films”

Born in Los Angeles, Brandon Vaughn Williams has spent much of his life involved in music. Until 2013, he wrote, recorded and toured with various rock bands, most notably Secret Empire.
Since 2013, Brandon has moved on to work with world-renowned orchestral composer/arranger David Richard Campbell, immersed in all of his recording projects, including: orchestral compositions, collaborations with rock, pop and country musicians, original film scores, as well as performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Dallas Symphony orchestras at the Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Meyerson Symphony Center.
Brandon plays guitar, piano, violin, viola, cello, and banjo, and various other instruments. His experiences with audio engineering and recordings for Campbell have enabled him to self-produce recordings such as the music he composed for ‘‘Contrell’’ featured in the EQUUS Film Festival 2016. In light of his relationships with many recording orchestras and his ability to play the instruments himself, he aims to accommodate filmmakers and dressage artists with varying budgets who require original music scores.

Wild Horses of Sable Island Gallery
Roberto Dutesco
64 Grand Street, New York - +1-212-219-9622
Emilie Adams, Director - info@dutescoart.com

Roberto Dutesco has been revealing the beauty of nature and the human spirit through his photography for more than three decades. He first learned of Sable Island and its wild horses in 1994 and made his first trip to the island that same year. A perilous journey by small plane from Halifax and a beach landing brought him to this remarkable place. Over time, and with patience and respect for these living creatures who, in the absence of natural predators, exhibit no fear of humans, he learned the ways of the horses and fell in love with the island in the process.

As Dutesco discovered the island for himself over the course of several visits, he captured the beauty and isolation of the wild horses and their austere habitat through still photography and 16-mm film. His incredible journey is presented in a full-length documentary entitled Chasing Wild Horses, which has aired many times on the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and other media outlets in the U.S. and Europe.

In 2008, the Canadian government identified Sable Island as a protected national treasure under the Canada Shipping Act, Bill #227, as a result of Dutesco’s efforts. He says, “This legislation underscores the point that, if natural locations like this are to endure, they must be left alone. I have spent the last eighteen years dedicated to that belief and will continue to work for their preservation for the future.”

Horseware Ireland

Horseware started with a small team, in Dundalk, Ireland in 1985. After months of research and hand-stitching the prototype of the now iconic Rambo Original was born, setting the standard for modern blanket design. Since then we have grown to become the world’s most trusted producer of horse blankets.

Founded by Tom and Carol MacGuinness, their determination to produce a blanket that didn’t leak, didn’t make the horse sweat and didn’t slip led to the creation of the first fully waterproof and breathable turnout that really worked.

Today, our Rambo range is still made in the same town in Ireland under Tom’s watchful eye and with the same attention to detail and high quality material that we prided ourselves on in 1985. We are constantly striving to produce the best we can and have grown into a leading manufacturer of clothing for horses and riders. We never stop evolving; we’re always seeking out untrodden paths, pushing boundaries and finding new challenges.

We believe that because we create, we innovate. And through innovation we aim to make a difference to the lives of you and your horses.

The Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) is one of only about a half dozen state equine commodities boards in the country.

The organization was founded in 1998 as an outgrowth of the State’s Riding Stables Inspection Program that began in 1968.MHIB receives no government funding although it is housed in the Maryland Department of Agriculture  (MDA) building in Annapolis and is a program within MDA. The organization is an example of a private/public partnership.

MHIB is totally funded from private equine industry sources. Monies are accrued from the annual licensing fees paid to MHIB by the state’s approximately 600 licensed lesson, boarding, rental and rescue facilities and from the Feed Fund Assessment program. Every time a Marylander buys a bag of horse feed, 15 cents is voluntarily contributed by feed manufacturers to help fund MHIB projects and initiatives.
