Fast Horse, winner of the Special Jury Prize at Sundance in 2019, is a short documentary about Indian Relay, a bareback horse racing sport from the Native American community. Although the riders clearly care for their horses and the documentary explores the close relationship between the Native American people and their animals, it is a somewhat uncomfortable watch for a vegan, as the horses have no real choice as to whether or not they participate in this self-proclaimed extreme sport. Having said that, there seems to be little more danger involved for the horses - and there are no fences - than with normal horse racing. Indeed, in comparison to the Palio di Siena (in Italy) and the way the UK's traveller community race their horses, it seems relatively safe. If you like the Sundance winning Fast Horse by Alexandra Lazarowich be sure to rate it and share it.
