In early the spring of 2013 Longtime horseman Ernst Oertel broke his fibula and tibia in a riding accident and had a titanium plate inserted in his tibia with nine screws, that is the way it stayed for the remainder of the year. After he collected his second successive UAE training championship in March 2014, he was operated on in Abu Dhabi at the end of May to take out the metal that had been holding the two major bones in his leg together. Weeks later, the dual UAE champion racehorse trainer was speaking as an authority on breeding and racing, at a conference and it became apparent that something was drastically wrong. His infected leg was weeping heavily, almost uncontrollably, Oertel whisked himself off to hospital after the conference but it was already too late…. he had contracted extreme septicaemia. After eight operations in a bid to fight back the infection, his left leg was amputated at the knee two weeks later.
This documentary film tells the story of a lifelong horseman’s journey back into the saddle. The struggles, both physical and emotional, he has endured and his passion and determination to return to his life with Arabian horses. Ernst is an inspiration to all, especially the horse community who understand how almost unfathomable his return to riding is. The bond between horse and human is a powerful and healing energy and this is a journey that must be shared.
