Walk. Ride. Rodeo. The incredible true story of nationally ranked barrel racer Amberley Snyder, who at 19 barely survives an automobile accident. Now paralyzed from the waist down, Amberley, with the support of her family, physical therapy and her own inspiring determination, fights to earn back her place in the sport she loves.Written by
The horse stunts were done by Amberly Snyder on her own horse, the real "Power", so she would look "natural" during the scenes after the car accident. The ones before the accident were done by her sister. See more »
When Amberly meets up with Tate at Bomont High School, Tate holds a paper with his speech in his hand for most of the time. When he goes up the stairs and realizes that Amberly cannot follow him, the paper has suddenly disappeared. In the next scene, it is back in his hand again. See more »
When the doctors asked what my goals were, I said, "Walk. Ride. Rodeo." I got the last two. About that first one... maybe one day.

A story worth telling ... could have been told better.
As a wheelchair user myself, I had an interest in this story. I like seeing my fellow "wheelies" succeed beyond what society expects of them. Ms. Snyder's story is indeed compelling. Unfortunately, the overdone melodrama in this film actually undercuts it, in my opinion. And a couple of elements in this film make it clear it was done on the cheap. Still, I thought the lead actress did a good job. And I like that Ms. Snyder -- whom this film is about -- did stunt riding in this film. A positive step for including people with disabilities in making movies.
