Cheryl Birtwick is 16 years old, rich, and freshly orphaned. Having no home and no one left to care for her but a giant trust fund and a passel of attorneys, she is sent to live with Lane family. Tim Lane and his daughter in law and grandson live on a massive ranch with three horses. They are well loved in their small farming community, and treat everyone around them with love and respect. Tim even helps the other farmers around him by giving them the rights to some of his crops for very little money. The only problem is, Tim is also short on funds, as many of his neighbors are, and soon learns he may lose his home if he doesn't pay the bank $25,000. Cheryl learns that he needs money and does what she can to help her new family keep their home. In the meantime, Cheryl conquers her fear of horses and makes a strong bond with one of Tim's prize horses; Black Beauty. Written by
They gallop around in their paddock. Not much else registered with me. I didn't identify with any of the characters. Nor, it seems, does anyone else. There was a fat, ugly, sheriff-type mayor, crooked-like man, probably corrupt, who was clearly the bad guy. At the end he had an improbable race, riding a horse, with the slender heroine riding another horse. She had made no impact on me at all, but she won the race. It was no surprise. Then the bad guy seemed to turn into a good guy, after all. The setting was pleasantly rural. The horses played their parts well. Can't think of a good reason for watching it. Harmless. Stockwell had a very strange little beard.
