If you like horses and cowgirls and trucks
21 April 2020 | by r-langdon-rowlandSee all my reviews

This movie had a lot of connections for me... I went with a cowgirl in college... At BYU... Her family was well off and had 40,000 acres... If you have ever ever ridden or like horses... Then this is the movie for you... I found it very romantic... And it had a very touching family center... I would say this is like a Hallmark movie... On steroids... It even has steers... I thought the camera work was excellent... The directing very good... And the acting exceptional... I don't know whether the girls really did the riding or not... But it was seamless... I might say that it was a big ad for Dodge trucks... So you'd better like Dodge trucks...
