We were excited to welcome the cast and crew of the movie “Billy & Blaze”.  The movie is based on the classic 1936 series by C. W. Anderson, about a boy who embarks on adventures after receiving a pony as a birthday gift.

The original book, Billy and Blaze, takes place in C. W. Anderson’s backyard. Stone fences, rolling hills, quaint villages and beautiful farms are all there, but finding these treasures 90 years later was difficult because many of the old barns and farmlands are gone.  The author admired Virginia’s horse country in many of his writings, so the producers and the C. W. Anderson Estate decided to shoot the movie in Virginia, with segments of it being shot here at Nellysford Country Inn in the Fall of 2017.

Enjoy these photos taken during production, and learn more about the Billy and Blaze movie on their website.
