Cari Swanson has provided horses and training for dozens of top films including The Horse Whisperer, Sylvester, The Black Stallion movies, Hidalgo, Secretariat, and The Lone Ranger (with Johnny Depp and Army Hammer). One of Cari’s more recent movie ventures is A Winter’s Tale, much of which was filmed on location in New York City and stars Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell, and Jessica Brown Findlay.

For Elise and her family, the real star of this movie is Novelisto — Elise’s former stallion and the equine love of her life!
