Just released on NOWNESS, director Matthew Donaldson’s short film A Caballo captures Argentine polo star Nacho Figueras astride his horse Vasco Negro through a 180.  In slow motion for maximum effect, the film is a visually stunning illustration of raw horsepower.  Oh yes, and Nacho isn’t so bad to look at.  You may recognize him from his Ralph Lauren adverts.

Side note:  I was a rather horse-obsessed girl, so you can see why this caught my eye (ok, aside from Nacho).  This short immediately brought to mind the classic 1979 film The Black Stallion that I guestimate I have watched about a billion times.  After a little searching, I unearthed this montage on YouTube and immediately had yearnings for my jodhpurs.  Perhaps Quite Continental should start taking riding lessons again.  We hear Gucci makes some beautiful riding boots…

Enjoy!
