A man is sent to a small town to assess which of the workers in the local factory that supplies the town with jobs should get the boot when the downsizing begins. He gets sidetracked when he falls in love with a local, a cute single mom.
Working in a Texas stockyard, breaking horses, Charlie's doing the best she can to support herself and her two brothers. But when she loses her job, she gets the idea to take her best bronco, Sylvester, and turn him into a lucrative profit by training him for three-day eventing. But since she knows little of dressage and show-jumping, it's going to take the help of her old boss, an ex-cavalryman, to get ready for competition.Written by
I watched this movie all the time as a kid, back when I didn't have a horse and I didn't have any way to be around a horse. Now that I do have a horse I still watch this movie, and I'm still grabbed by it. I can sympathize with Charlie, thrill as she competes and be totally hooked by the ending. I can even hear the theme music when I ride! Every time I see this movie, I want to go out and ride and compete - it really motivates me! And I must have seen it a hundred times, possibly more. I highly recommend this movie, it is one of the best horse movies out there and probably the best eventing/jumping movie I've ever seen.
