If you are still having Lord of the Ring equestrian fantasies — or wish you’d ridden in the Lady Mary steeplechase scene on Downton Abby, check out this casting call from Paperpony Casting. Wrong continent for me, but wouldn’t it be fun?
ONCE AGAIN looking for very experienced riders to appear in the background of TV series. You do not need your own horse or transport but please do not apply if you are a novice rider. All riders will be put through competency tests before being accepted. You can be called at short notice so availability is key here. Filming over next few months.
We are looking for :
for guys and girls of all ages. Natural hair colour. Full availability during week or part of the week. Can get to Cumbernauld at silly o’clock. Won’t moan about the Long hours and who are very, very reliable and friendly and who wouldn’t mind helping out with horses whilst on set.
If you want to be included this year, your challenge is to email a recent head and shoulder shot against a white wall in good natural light.
And a photo or two of you riding / jumping.
Please no crazy hair ( you not horse) _ it’s a period drama!
Include your sizes:
Head size in inches
High hip ( fattest part)
Inside leg boys
Please be 100% accurate
I also need all of your contact details. You will need your passport handy (if you have one ) and NI no.
Rates vary but are decent.
Look forward to hearing from you all soon.
PLEASE, Please. No time wasters.
References will be required ( and checked) before you are accepted for this job :o)
