Hope’s Legacy Brings Eventing to the Big Screen

By USEA

Eventing is making an appearance on the big screen with “Hope’s Legacy,” a film about a young woman navigating her relationship with her fiancé while competing in the sport of eventing. A sequel to the 2016 film “Christmas Ranch”, Taylor Lyons reprises her role as Lizzy Evans, who in “Christmas Ranch” helps to save her grandmother’s farm. Now Lizzy runs the farm and competes in the sport of eventing, coached by Linda Locke, played by Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Dyan Cannon.

Much of the eventing portions of the film were shot at Full Moon Farm in Finksburg, Maryland. Owned and operated by Karen and Stephen Fulton, Full Moon Farm is a boarding and training facility with an active lesson program that caters to both eventers and hunter/jumpers, hosting clinics, schooling shows, and USEA recognized events.

“It gave us a real appreciation for how difficult making a movie is - we didn’t realize that making a movie was so difficult!” Karen Fulton shared. “Just in terms of the number of takes that you have to have to get what you want. Any time you add animals to it, because they obviously don’t know what’s going on – you can’t jump the same jump 40 times.”

“We’ve seen some of the trailers and it’s pretty neat, the difference between being in it – watching it being filmed – then watching the film. We’re really looking forward to the finished product.”

“Hope’s Legacy” will be premiering on April 2, 2020 at the historic Senator Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland at 6:00 p.m. Get your tickets here.
