Workhorse is an ode and essay on horse-powered labour through the contemporary experiences of three teamsters whose work and lives are intertwined with their stoic equine partners.

Workhorse is part of an ongoing series of documentary portraits that examine the relationship between rural communities and industry in Ontario. Formally composed, the film reflects on our ancient relationship with horses as living machines bred to work. Thematically, the film contemplates the idea of horses as biotechnology (animals domesticated, bred, and harnessed for their physical power), and the now largely forgotten role of the equine in the history of commercial and industrial development.
