Lads and Jockeys trailer

Lads and Jockeys trailer

This trailer is French and does have subtitles.

In France there is a small village outside of Paris where 14-year-old boys and girls go to a training center to become future lads and jockeys. For many of them the transition between their family environment and the world of horses is quite brutal.

This documentary film follows three young boys, Steve, Florian and Flavien during their first year of apprenticeship. The apprenticeship leads to Flavien’s first race, which officially puts him in the restricted world of jockeys.

Lads and Jockeys first debuted in Europe in 2008 but it didn’t really make US appearances until last Friday in New York.
