Storyline

After the break up of her marriage, photographer Samantha Taylor retreats to the sanctuary of friend Caroline Lord's California ranch. An excellent rider, Samantha is initially given a frosty welcome by the ranch hands, but she begins to gain their respect as they see that she is more than able on a horse and in their environment. Samantha falls in love with ranch hand Tate Jordan, and they share a deep and passionate love until Tate finds out that Samantha's ex-husband is popular and wealthy news anchor Warren Taylor. Ashamed by his profession and his 'status', he leaves the ranch. Samantha is heartbroken once again and tries to assuage her pain by embarking on a project photographing the 'real' cowboys of the west. Whilst visiting a ranch in California, Samantha breaks her back in an accident and is paralysed, and must learn how to walk - and ride - again. Caroline Lord tragically dies but leaves her ranch to Samantha, who turns it into a riding school for paralysed children. ... Written by Stacey Mitchell <staceym@btinternet.com>

What a great cast!
10 March 2001 | by (Wyoming) – See all my reviews

This movie is very inspirational and beautiful. Not only because of the choice of venue, but the actors as well. Lee Horsley is incredibly sexy as Tate (I'd say we all need to see more of Mr. Horsley). Eva Marie Saint plays a wonderful monarch to the ranch. Anyone who wants to see a heartwarming, beautiful, and sexy movie needs to see Palamino.
