2021 Horse Week Film Contest Winner

Jacob McLane was the winner of the 2021 Horse Week Film Contest. McLane's film was the 1017 Project which is based on Jordan Weaver, founder of the 1017 Project—a 501c3 charity that produces roping events that then donates the cattle used to local food supply outlets that feed food insecure populations.
