The Last Horseman of New York Premieres at Norwood Club

Life in New York City can be as glorious as it can be a daily battle of survival. Often it can feel like a war between the rich and the working class. It can be a hard pill to swallow, but one documentary is shaking up the notion and bringing joy to the masses.

THE LAST HORSEMEN OF NEW YORK (in theatres May 11 and digital platforms May 15) is one film that rocks the world of The Big Apple for the better.


At the premiere

No matter what your opinion is on the carriage horse business in New York one cannot deny after seeing this powerful film that money talks, but sometimes loud shouting voices of the working class can scream louder than the blabbing.


Freestyle Digital Media has recently acquired the talented Mary Haverstick’s documentary. THE LAST HORSEMEN OF NEW YORK is a documentary feature that follows leaders of New York’s historic horse carriage industry as they fight Mayor Bill De Blasio, who had vowed to eliminate them on day one of his term.


Haverstick’s cameras captured the struggle for two years, with the working-class carriage drivers (and their working-class equine charges) under assault from animal rights activists on one side and politicos funded by billionaire real estate developers with an eye on the horsemen’s West Side stables on the other. Christina Hansen and Stephen Malone, the two industry spokespeople, are thrust by necessity into the limelight and find themselves in a bare-knuckle brawl in a city known for political hardball.


The ongoing saga frequently captures the headlines of every New York newspaper and has even launched investigations into the mayoral election and financing surrounding this issue—with revelations continuing to this date.

Featuring extensive interviews with Oscar-nominated actor Liam Neeson, THE LAST HORSEMEN OF NEW YORK was written and directed by Mary Haverstick, and produced by Mary Haverstick, Michele Mercure, and Sarah Chase.
