Synopsis: The Highlands

The Island Project was an adventure of a life time, I learnt so much during the month but it also left me a whole new set of questions! The horses didn’t need me on the island they were totally free but they did have a restriction….the water around it!
I wanted to now know what happens to a relationship if you travel on a journey, could I back two horses, be able to ride them and have them at liberty while traveling across the Scottish highlands, every step we took would be unknown, if I lost them they would literally be able to run over thousands of acres.
This film is about my journey, I camp out every night, film myself and carry all my kit and equipment. The aim is to cross the Scottish highlands coast to coast with two unhandled Highland Ponies (they hadn’t even been taught to lead before) it turned out to be quite an adventure!
