Christmas Ranch is the winner at theThe Equus Film festival Best Family Feature 2017 Winnie Award and has been on tour for 3 Tour Stops in Maryland, Oregon and South Carolina. The Equus Film festival has been created to highlight and award the diverse and creative efforts of those who artistically pay homage to the horse. The festival empowers storytellers to show the rich history and diverse tapestry of horses in human culture through equestrian content.  We have feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training educational materials, art and literature. As home to the storytellers of the horse world, the EQUUS Film Festival, is the first event of its kind dedicated to equestrian-themed film, fine art and authors.
