Wild Hearts tells the story of Willow (Cambrie Schroder), a strong, beautiful, independent minded young girl from Malibu who is determined to find the father she has never known. She finds Jack (Ricky Schroder), her father, a rugged cowboy, far from home in the wild Sierra Nevada Mountains. Jack, who used to run a dude ranch, now breaks and sells wild horses to make ends meet. As Jack and Willow struggle to understand each other's ways, Willow makes a connection with an untamable Mustang, Bravo which she becomes determined to set free. Grizz (Martin Kove), and his son Duke (Luke Schroder), Jack's rivals, seek to claim the beautiful mustang also. Wild Hearts is a movie filled with adventure, beauty and self-discovery. Written by

Nobody takes away someone's horse like Grizz did to Willow at the beginning of the movie, when she fell off her horse. That is horse theft and would result in serious criminal prosecution. Grizz was never prosecuted for the act. See more »
Our Wild Hearts is a Schroeder family affair. Ricky directs it and also co-wrote it with his wife.
His kids have various roles. His daughter Cambie plays a privileged Malibu teen who travels to the Sierra Nevada Mountains to meet up with her long lost father and bonds with a spirited wild mustang.
Her father Jack an honest to goodness rancher is intent on catching the horse in order to sell him. The daughter wants to let him run free. His neighbouring greedy rancher try every means fair or foul to capture the mustang.
Apparently this was one of the highest rated Hallmark films when it premiered which is a bit like being the tallest dwarf in a midget competition.
Some of the ethics displayed in the film is appalling. Never Mind the question of capturing the wild horse, Martin Kove who plays the greedy rancher and his kids should had been arrested for all the laws they break. It seems Kove must have been a black ops specialist in a former life who has been granted Presidential immunity because the Sheriff should had ran him and his no good family out of town.
Ricky gets as mileage as he can as the put upon but honest to goodness rancher trying to get through hard times and pressure put on by Kove.
The film is also low budget which you can tell as it was a cloudy day when they filmed at the beach. Just a shame the cast were required to sunbathe in a clearly overcast day.
