My daughter discovered this movie last weekend, just after returning home from a combined swimming pool/horseback riding birthday party and right before uncovering her case of chicken pox. (mild, fortunately.)
Since we've been encountering some problems with a mean girl in school, the nasty, spoiled rich girl in the story who has nothing kind whatsoever to say to anyone, except when she's trying to manipulate people, held my attention. I confess, I cheered (quietly but vociferously) when she fell off her horse.
But that's not really the main focus of the movie.
Here's what this movie, based an Australian TV series, which itself was based on a series of books by Bonnie Bryant--none of which we'd read or even heard of until now-- is about:
Three likable girls, Stevie, Carol, and Lisa, all try to perfect their riding skills at an Australian riding club while
coping with the nasty Veronica whose stubbornness leads to the
death of her horse, their own changing interests,the impending birth of a foal, various other horse health crises, and the presence of handsome young fellows who work as stablehands. Oh, and a boy their age who is, in his own fumbling way, trying to figure out how to let one of the girls know that he likes her.
Carol is still contending with the loss of her mother, a veterinarian whose shoes she'd hoped to fill, though she encounters doubts. Stevie is trying to stay out of
Veronica's way while maintaining her interest in horses, even as some of her friends strike out in other directions and Lisa is just trying to figure out life.Read more ›
There are tons of horse scenes and it deals with a lot of problems that young girls face. I wish that I knew where the stable in the movie was because it is incredible! The film was evidently filmed in England so it's kindof funny to hear the American East-coast (from the books) girls using English terminology with the British accents but overall it was very well done.
Good gift for a kid going to horse camp, taking lessons or discovering their first interest in horses.
