A most interesting emblazonment.
I like the gorges/gurges (I believe either spelling is acceptable) and their association with movie stunts — even if they can be likened to a cartoon depiction of an explosion.
However I agree with Iain Boyd that the 35mm film is a bit fussy.
And Mike McCartney has a point regarding the tricolour torse and the mantling.
The crest is unusual, with its bits of guitar, but apparently appropriate, and the horse is an entirely acceptable crest beast.
Thanks for posting this, Arthur.

What strikes me is how pure Spanish the horse is. I don't think I could have drawn a horse more purely Spanish.
