War Horse is a 2011 war film based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and its 2007 stage adaptation. Set before and during World War I, it tells of the journey of Joey, a bay Irish Hunter horse raised by British teenager Albert, as he is bought by the British Army, leading him to encounter numerous individuals and owners throughout Europe, all the while experiencing the tragedies of the war happening around him.
This movie is deeply intertwined with the founding of Brooke USA’s sister organization, Brooke: Action for Working Horses & Donkeys. The fate of the former WWI horses who experienced such devastating abandonment and suffering, is brought to depiction in this epic saga of the journey of Joey. He stands for every horse abandoned and left without respite post-war. It was Dorothy Brooke who felt a strong urge to seek out these horses and do whatever was needed to ease their suffering. She went on to find hundreds of horses desperately in need of help and established the Brooke Hospital for the Animals in 1934.
The movie will be marked by the presence of several corporate partners who together emphasize the importance of Brooke USA’s work. Partners (to date) are Equus Film Fest, Truist, United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), Absorbine, United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA), EnviroEquine & Pet and EQUUS Television.
We hope you will join us in celebrating Dorothy’s legacy and exalting the many contributions working horses have made throughout history by supporting our summer fundraiser!
