Troubled teen is sent for rehabilitation at horse ranch for the underprivileged
13 October 2002 | by 5039See all my reviews

Wonderful, heartfelt tale of a troubled teen sent to work through her problems at a horse ranch and discovers herself in the process. Touching with a sense of truth and a good bet for the entire family. Ari Meyers is great as Allison in the title role.
