Synopsis: Every Ride Is for You is a story about the relationship between women and horses, as seen through the lens of three generations of women. It’s a story of love, and loss, and getting back in the saddle after being dumped hard — by a buck you never saw coming. It’s about connection beyond anything that can be explained.

Director's Statement

I made Every Ride Is For You because I happen to be related to three remarkable women whose story I felt needed to be told. My mother, my sister, and my niece have a connection to horses that is both deeply personal, and universal — especially among women. I wanted to explore that connection through the strength of these women. Every Ride Is For You celebrates sisterhood, love, and that which helps us face the most devastating losses.
