When she travels to meet her, she befriends a horse trainer (Colletti, Stephen) and discovers that in caring for the horse, she is able to overcome her hardships and emotional trauma. Together they begin to win many races and upset the favorites, owned by an egocentric mogul (Eric Roberts).

Real and clean feel good story - empathetic
9 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

  • This was a feel good story with some tension that ends well. Real and clean. Since it is a true story it made me think about the emotions that the characters were really experiencing. I could empathize. Acting was decent to good or better. For what I assume was a budget film, well done. - On the technical side, a number of editing leaps could have easily been smoothed out with a little more length. For instance, no explanation of claim racing, which could have heightened tension. A few abrupt transitions and a little rushed. Makeup was a little overdone, especially for a girl waking up in the hospital. - Depiction of horse abuse was not too explicit. - Green was a recurring color theme juxtaposed with red; infused throughout and very noticeable.
