Storyline

After the death of his father, troubled teen Jake Gattison travels with his mother to Harmony Ranch, a special retreat for families dealing with problems. There, Jake discovers a kindred spirit in Troubadour, a young stallion that has lost his mother and is acting out, unsettled and distressed. Ranch owner Chief works to calm the uneasy horse. Jake witnesses Chief's determination with the stallion, and begins to see the wisdom in the old man's words and deeds-lessons he can apply to his own life. When Troubadour suddenly runs away, Jake makes it his mission to bring the lost stallion home. The ranch hand Greywolf explains to Jake the Native American legend of Heaven's Pathway, a mountain that towers over Harmony Ranch, said to be a place where wounded souls go to find peace. With this knowledge, Jake sets out with his new friends Nicki and Isaac, two other troubled teens, on a journey to the top of Heaven's Pathway in search of Troubadour. The adventure challenges the three teens as ... Written by Anonymous

I fully respect the opinions of others, but I wanted to clear up a few things that have been discussed:

First, about the animals-- that is a REAL stallion as "Troubadour" in the movie, not a gelding or mare. Believe me, it was a challenge to work with him. Also, that is a REAL authentic Canadian timber wolf in the film, not just a "white dog."

Second, the main character of Jake does not get arrested just for "throwing a rock through a window." He is seen hot-wiring a car and going for a joyride. The reason the police officer is so lenient is because he is the same officer from an earlier scene during the family's tragedy and he understands why Jake is lashing out and "running wild." He is shown giving a Harmony Ranch brochure to Jake's mom - an alternative to harsher punishment considering the family's recent misfortune. I don't think this is too far-fetched, especially considering many alternative boot-camps, ranches, and retreats for teen offenders or troubled youth are still found all over the US today.

Finally, I do not understand why someone would bother watching a movie and bashing it here on IMDb if they knew right away from the description, actors they dislike, or genre that it was NOT a movie for them. Oh, and by the way, this was NOT a "major studio" film-- I WISH it were. I am proud of all that the cast and crew accomplished on such a tiny budget and tight schedule.
