The Trakehner is considered by some to be the greatest horse breed on Earth. Yet these magnificent animals only barely made it into the 21st century. Two world wars decimated their numbers. But the Trakehner has been saved by dedicated individuals and breeders. The animals have now returned to excel in tournaments and examinations. This film captures the grace and beauty of these fast, light horses that have managed to survive against the greatest odds.
