Storyline

The Sweethearts of the Rodeo are back! And their newest trick rider still has a lot to learn about competitive trick riding, and herself, too. COWGIRLS N ANGELS DAKOTAS SUMMER tells the story of Dakota, a cowgirl and trick rider who finds out at the age of 17 that she was adopted. While visiting her grandfather, rodeo legend Austin Rose, Dakota secretly sets out to discover the truth about her adoption and meet her birth parents. At Austin's ranch, Dakota come to see that family is not defined by blood but rather personal commitment and enduring love. Finally at peace, Dakota trains with Austin in order to rejoin the Sweethearts for their final competition and become the champion trick rider she was destined to be. Written by Anonymous

Worth watching
21 June 2014 | by Sail_a_manSee all my reviews

I looked forward to seeing this movie, as a fan of the original I was looking forward to seeing the gang in action again. However the gang wasn't to be seen, the only two original characters are Madison who now appears to be the boss, and Walker who appeared only briefly in the original as the man in the stable who Ida thought was her Dad. The main character is 17year old Dakota, played by a 22 year old actress Haley Ramm who walks out on her family after finding out she is adopted to find her birth parents. The character of Terrence Parker is replaced by Austin Rose played by Keith Carradine. The main missing ingredient is of course Bailee Madison although more than compensated by the inclusion of young Jade Pettyjohn who plays Summer Jennings a troubled youngster from a foster home who tells tall tales about her none existent family but manages to tug at a few heartstrings towards the end. All in all an enjoyable movie and well worth watching.
