A heart-warming story about overcoming impossible odds to achieve one's goals
10 August 2004 | by (NC, US) – See all my reviews

Horse loves everywhere will love this pleasant film about a woman who's deadbeat husband abandons her, leaving her to find a job and a home for herself, her daughter and her horse. She finds all of the above at a stable; where relationships blossom and the future beings to look bright.

This movie has good acting, average filming, a good plot and the flashbacks to when the lady was younger/the dynamics with her mother add to the storyline. This story was also loosely based on a true story. 7 out of 10.
