Terry, an ER-nurse and out of a job, takes time out and reconnects with her passion for riding horses.
After a lifetime as an ER-nurse, TERRY suddenly finds herself out of a job – and identity. Shocked, hurt and traumatized by recent experiences at her rundown hospital, Terry takes time out and reconnects with her passion for riding horses.
But Terry’s attempt at detaching herself from reality comes to an abrupt halt when she meets EDDIE, a ten-year-old retired racehorse.
Together, Terry and Eddie find common strength from their experiences and their new bond opens up to the possibility of a new world of horse therapy. Most of all, Eddie helps Terry discover her true purpose to heal by reconnecting with herself.
Riding became an opportunity for me to breathe, stay healthy, and be free.
EDDIE’S TURN came to me when I returned to riding as a way to manage the isolation that I felt while quarantining due to COVID. After years out of the saddle, I came home to the stable again and quickly forged a bond with the thoroughbreds at horseman Rolf Gustafsson’s ranch.
Riding became an opportunity for me to breathe, stay healthy and be free. That experience became the inspiration for Terry, who like many had to find her footing again after tragedy. Speaking to doctors, I was reminded of how many in the medical community struggle while caring for others and need the same opportunity to take a mental break.
And so the story of Terry was born.
Eddie's Turn, the inspiration for the movie, raced primarily in Santa Anita between 2013 and 2016.
Eddie’s Turn, the inspiration for the movie, was born in 2011 to racing thoroughbreds, PINDARIC and SLEW GIN FIZZ. Owned by Howard and Janet Siegel at the time, Eddie was trained by Eddie Truman and raced primarily at Santa Anita between 2013 – 2016, winning $80,000 during his career.
Eddie is now living life as an Off the Track Thoroughbred at Red Oak Legacy Farm in Val Verde, CA, where he is retraining as a riding horse learning cool dressage moves and providing amateur therapy to human friends.
