Horse Rush TV

HORSE RUSH TV Australia on air since 2003!



 The Horse Rush Story

Horse Rush TV was born out of our love of horses.  The year was 2003 and I was working as an actor and taking documentary production courses.  Joe at the time was also taking these courses with me.  As horse owners we where in awe at all the horse TV shows available in the USA.  On our return to Australia we made some enquires at a local network and they asked us to make a Horse TV show and they would air it.  That is when our long journey began in October of 2003. Since that time we have travelled all around the world filming educational segments for our viewers with the best horsemen and women in the world.  We recently filmed at The World Equestrian Games in Kentucky 2010 and are currently working on our first documentary film Marwari – War Horse of the Maharaja due for a 2013 release, filming in the USA, India and the UK. We have a wonderful crew that have been with us for a very long time.  In 2004 we where the first Australian Horse TV show to air in the USA on 2 networks RFD-TV and Horse TV.  We where the only Australian Horse TV show on air for nearly 10 years from 2003. We where the first Australian horse website with video on our site.  In 2004 there where hardly any horse websites in Australia.  We where also the first Australian horse journalists to film the Marwai horse, the Indigenous Horse of India and ride the Marwari horses in Rajasthan India 2004.  This was one of our most popular episodes and one of our most memorable experiences to date.  February 2012 we return to India with an award winning crew to film the Marwari horses documentary. We are now up to Horse Rush TV Series 4 which returns to air October 2012 in Australia, USA & UK.  We would now like to thank some of our business associates, cast and crew that have made Horse Rush what it is today. – TATIANA & JOE
