My Life Between The Reins: A True-Story Feature Documentary

Marilyn Swick, a multiple award-winning director, producer, screenwriter, SAG-AFTRA actor and ASCAP songwriter and producer is proud to share that she is directing and writing a new feature film, titled My Life Between The Reins.  It is a true story documentary of a young girl with cerebral palsy and her equestrian journey into adulthood facing challenges with the help of her family, faith, and determination to follow her goals & dreams. Paige’s lifelong motto has been, “I am not disabled, just inconvenienced.”

Paige was born with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck five times, the physician told her parents she may never walk or talk.  For more than 40 years, Paige has not only walked, but trotted and loped her way to multiple award-winning performances at the AQHA shows.  With an ever-present smile she embodies resilience, courage, faith, and unwavering hope that is truly an inspiration to all that know her.

When Marilyn Swick met Paige and her super-mom, Susie she knew she had to share her inspirational story.  The film is currently in production, visit this link if you’d like to join their journey to bring this inspirational film from script to screen and to distribution options.

Executive producers include South Texas Tack, Western Bloodstock, Lone Woolf, Dual Reyish and many more generous contributors.

This film follows Marilyn’s very successful mermaid destiny film, Ocean Child who has just completed it’s year on the film festival circuit.  We are thrilled to share it finished with a total of 71 wins and 14 nominations.
