Really Touching

I saw this movie on the Animal Planet channel, and it was really a sweet movie. It was about a little girl who was injured in a car accident that claimed her father's life. She and her mother move into a trailer park, and next door is a stable. She soon falls in love with a horse named Ginger, who has also gone through some rough times. The two of them form a bond, and begin Barrel Racing. This was just a really nice story, with good acting. I recommend it to anyone, but especially people who love animals and horses.
