Third Time Lucky

The following documentary project explores my mother's past and developing relationships with horses. Stopping horse-riding to raise my sister and I, she returned to this sport a few years ago, leading to a series of complicated experiences leading to injury and loss of confidence.


In this project I focused on documenting her forming a bond with her horse, a Friesian named Ridzert, who, due to liver issues, had become quite nervous around my mother. In this project, I explore themes of the past and present to present a body of work that explores universal themes of the struggle of trusting again.
