Best International Short film at the Equus Film and Art Festival in Lexington, Kentucky.

This film was shot for Racing Welfare (Head office in Newmarket) to mark Mental Health Awareness Week

This film seeks to highlight that anyone around you, on any normal day, at any given time, may be struggling. Research shows that almost two-thirds of the UK population will battle with their mental health at some point in their lives and we want to help make it easier for people to talk about it. No one should ever feel like they are alone.
If you do anything this week, please take a couple of minutes to watch the film, made for Racing Welfare by Equine Productions Ltd.
