30 Therapeutic Riding & Horse Rescue Organizations, Feature Fund Raising Film. Add Yours.

That was the best horse movie ever.” –Kids at Four Star Farm, Graham, Washington (near Tacoma).

Sholeh Lulham-New was the coordinator for the event and she’s with Horses Guiding Humans and is a member of EAGALA.

Sholeh paid $250 for theater rental for last Saturday’s event and said she made money for her organization and created a great get together for all her riders and volunteers.


After making “Unbridled” Hollywood filmmakers were so touched by the healing story of horses they have offered a private screening of their film to any equine-related organization as a fundraiser prior to the launch of the film in theatres.


Friends, this is an extraordinary opportunity to bring your group together, easily raise funds for your organization and increase awareness.  Please act today: you must submit your information before the end of 2017.  All you need to do is email the contact at the bottom of this blog, ThinLine.

From the Director: Hello, my name is John David Ware, Director of the new feature film, UNBRIDLED.

We are all very touched by the Equine programs during our filming.  So much so we have designed a Hollywood premiere in your area before the public release of the film. The best part is that we will donate ALL of the profits to your organization, after theatre-related expenses. We have created an easy, exciting fundraiser that supports abused women, equine therapy programs and rescue organizations.

UNBRIDLED is an award-winning film starring T.C. Stallings (War Room) and Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight). Inspired by true stories, UNBRIDLED focuses on Sarah’s road to healing. Audiences cheer at the end for our hero, her horse, and their victory.  It is appropriate for ages 12 and above; No foul language or graphic abuse. Contact us with questions or to preview the entire film.  I am confident you will love it!
“This is another great tool for the fight. “Unbridled” deals with this issue in a way that allows precise knowledge of the situation, yet allows the audience to focus on the victory that is possible if we will stand together, start this discussion and finally say ‘no more.'” Anthony Begonia, Director of Entertainment Industry Relations at The Salvation Army

More About the Film:


A new independent film, “Unbridled,” directed by John David Ware, is based on real-life stories of troubled teen girls who learn to trust again by forming relationships with rescued horses, starring Tea McKay, Eric Roberts, and TC Stallings.  Equines in the movie trained by Lindsey Partridge of Harmony Horsemanship – A Natural Horsemanship Center in Canada.  Unbridled is a heartfelt project designed to bring awareness to Human Trafficking and healing through Equine Programs.

This film is based on true stories from Corral Riding Academy, a program in Raleigh, NC, where we shot the film. Corral uses the amazing healing power of horses and animal-assisted therapy for teen, at-risk and sex-trafficked girls.

UNBRIDLED focuses on redemption and healing. It shows a great victory in the battle. At its heart, UNBRIDLED is a girl-and-her-horse-film with a girl that powerfully overcomes great difficulties.

UNBRIDLED shows an upper-middle-class family struggling against the unmentionable corruption at the heart of the problem. The setting brings it closer to home for those who could donate and raise awareness to more effectively combat the issue.

“I would like for you to come to the film and see what synergy we can devise to call attention to this problem” – John David Ware, Director

The star of the movie, Dreamer, is an amazing real-life champion horse. Dreamer plays a central role throughout the story and performs several amazing feats. Dreamer’s trainer, the real-life celebrity Lindsey Partridge, also appears in the movie. She is a Natural Horsemanship Freestyle Champion and the founder of Harmony Horsemanship. Lindsey and her two most famous horses traveled all the way from Ontario to North Carolina in order to be part of this movie. Click here to contact: Dreamer and Lindsey

ThinLine was grown from grassroots and we still come to work every day for one reason: because we know how lucky we are to have a product which can help the physical, mental and emotional well-being of horses and riders.

If you are a ThinLine rider you know how it calms horses, provides comfort and protects both their backs and the backs of riders while also improving equitation.

This is a product for people who have a mission to not only succeed but to make every day, every person they touch, better and happier.
