Author and filmmaker Stormy May is changing the way equestrians think about their horses: no bits, no saddles....no riding. Her popular documentary film, The Path of the Horse, is a fascinating look at the horse and human heart and the other-worldy potential for their relationship.
About a decade ago, Stormy, formerly a champion competitor, instructor, and judge in equestrian sporting events, sold her ranch and bought a camera. She set out to travel the world and film the greatest horsemen and women, people whom she respected and read, and to learn a different and more humane way to work with horses. Her journey uncovered research that challenged her thinking and led her to look at her relationship with her own horses much differently.
She'll share her journey and her thoughts on horses in this conversation on Minstrel and Muse.

Here are today's guests on the TODAY SHOW with Maria Shriver. Watch as a preview unfolds: here is a preview!
As Americans, we spend upwards of $10 billion every year seeking happiness. Additional billions (yes, plural) of dollars are spent annually on antidepressants. Yet we consistently rank low on the United Nation’s World Happiness Report. Today we are speaking with Adam Shell and Nicholas Kraft, the director/editor and producer of the film “Pursuing Happiness: A Documentary About Finding the Happiest People in America.” Adam and Nicholas spoke to over 400 happiness experts (many folks just like you and me) as they traveled over 6,000 miles, visiting 20 different states! Their tale is not a purely Pollyanna one though—to know the light we must experience the dark. What these two brilliant men do share, is a film with enormous heart. “Pursuing Happiness" has connection and community as its heartbeat; it is a film that had me burst out in laughter and silently shed tears. It is a film I intend to share over and over again with family and friends…and today I begin that sharing with you.
Award-winning singer/songwriter turned movie producer Matt Zarley joins us to talk on the journey of his acclaimed musical short film, "hopefulROMANTIC."
The film stars Zarley, Jolie Jenkins, Chuck Seculla, and TV icon/LGBT activist George Takei.
Accepted into over two dozen film festivals, the film is part music video, part Broadway musical and part romantic movie - in fact, it's all of those things and more.
Zarley discusses the inspiration for the project, as well as the evolution of the film. Plus, he shares several songs from the movie soundtrack.
