The Bud Werner Memorial Library will offer a free screening of “American Horses,” a documentary that shares the history of the uniquely American horse breeds and the people who care for them.

The film, chosen from the 2022 International Wildlife Film Festival, will screen at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, in Library Hall.

“American Horses” tells the story of horsepower that shaped a nation. The documentary takes viewers on a journey that traces the emergence of iconic breeds like Mustangs, Appaloosas, Morgans and Quarterhorses. It also shows the effort today’s trainers take to continue understanding, creating and maintaining the legacies of these horses, examining the long traditions of innovation and husbandry that are now part of American culture.
