Nashville recording artist Pete Martinez donated the song "THE HORSE," theme song for Horse Sense, a documentary premiering on Rocky Mountain PBS featuring the Colorado State
University's Equine Research Programs. The film tells the story of mankind's relationship with the horse. Martinez wrote, recorded and performed the song to applaud the advancements of the CSU Equine Institute, one of the world's most prestigious equine teaching hospitals and research entities.
"The powerful relationship of man and horse and the role the horse has played is central to human history," says Martinez. "As the first song I've written solo, 'THE HORSE' is a story that needed to be told. The song chronicles and honors the strong human connection with the horse over time. I'm fortunate to have been given the opportunity to relate my own horse experiences in support of CSU's research and medical milestones in the equine industry."
The documentary Horse Sense was produced by students and faculty at the Lawrence and Kristina Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University in Orange, CA. Horse Sense is an introspective look at human-horse relationships, with a focus on the innovative work Colorado State
University carries on to advance the equine landscape across the world.
Debut of "THE HORSE" was performed by Pete Martinez January 23, 2013 at the Night of Dancing Horses, a signature event of the National
Western Stock Show in Denver, CO. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper introduced Martinez' live performance of the song at the World Premiere screening of the film in Denver, CO held at the IMAX theatre in February. Hear "THE HORSE" at https://www.petemartinezusa.com.
