The Best Movie I've Ever Seen

This is an amazing movie for all ages. It teaches you about the transformation of people, horses, and young love. I've never seen a more realistic love story line. The antagonist in this movie is the most incredible actor in the whole film. This movie is filled with laughter, drama, and romance. I think it's a must see for anyone.

This title has:

Great messages

If you know anything about horsemanship, Rodeo, ranch life you know more than the person(s) that wrote this script. More homework on these subjects would have made this a a better than average family film. When the boy is coaching the girl and tells her horse needs to neck rein to barrel race it was clear the writer doesn’t know anything about the sport. It was lame.
