DOCUMENTARY: Beyond The Impossible – Horse Therapy And Cerebral Palsy


This year, Rife magazine teamed up with BFI Film Academy’s 2015 class of documentary makers to create four films about life for young people in Bristol.

We head to Shipham Riding School to meet Winnie, who lives with cerebral palsy. As part of her physical therapy, she rides horses, which helps her to strengthen and control her muscles.

This short documentary was made by young people on the BFI Film Academy programme delivered by Watershed.


The BFI Film Academy Bristol identifies and nurtures young talent (16-19-year-olds) so they have the skills and knowledge to thrive in the film industry.
