After our first film for Riding for the Disabled led to them being nominated as the Guardian Newspaper Charity of the Year, we have been invited back to create fundraising films for them every year since.
Working with disabled people, dedicated members of staff and the horses themselves always reminds us that disabilities needn’t stop anyone from living life to the full. Something we have captured in our films.
Charlotte has Joubert Syndrome that “makes walking and talking a bit tricky.” We had the fortune to get to see Charlotte’s amazing dreams lived out to the full thanks to the support of Riding for the Disabled, using riding to give people with disabilities the chance to live life to the full. The power of emotive story-telling, seeing the world through other’s eyes, can be an irresistible force.
This film was shown at a fund-raising gala, after which Charlotte (and Helen) took to the stage to rapturous applause.

“Excellent – the quality of the finished product and the speed with which you got to the heart of what we want.”
Ed Bracher ― Riding for the Disabled
“I wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely video that you made of Charlotte for the RDA – it’s really lovely and captures Charlotte so well and really highlights her abilities. You were also really lovely with her during the filming process and we all enjoyed the day.”
Helen Seth ― Charlotte's Mum
“The films were fantastic. Everyone said how brilliant they were. You would have loved seeing Charlotte and Helen getting their awards and the impact it had on the room. When Helen went up for her award, the clapping just didn’t stop. It was lovely.”
