Flicka: Country Pride

 When Toby (Black) takes on a job at a stable with Flicka in tow, the owner's teenage daughter Kelly (Rohl), quickly bonds with the wild horse. A budding equestrian rider, she hopes to break Flicka for an upcoming competition, despite her mother's (Hartman Black) disapproval. With the competition approaching, a rival trainer stealing business, and a growing fear they may be forced to sell the stable, Toby steps in to turn things around for Kelly and her mother.

My husband and I sat down and watched this movie last night and I absolutely love it.  I am a huge fan of the Flicka movies, and any horse movie for that matter, but I really enjoy these ones.   And this one was awesome.  I love watching stuck up, snotty people being shown the world isn't their playground, we all have equal rights to do things here.  Like it or not!  I love how Kelly, falls right in love with Flicka, they were meant to find one another and enjoy many rides together.  I think Flicka gave Kelly the courage that she needed to get back up on that horse and show the snotty rich girl she still has what it takes to compete against her in the ring.   I really enjoyed the story and even more so when I began to understand why the rich girl didn't like Kelly, at first I thought she was just jealous.  She was unbelieveably mean and cold to her, but I guess with reason....reason of which you will have to watch the movie to find out.  If you're a horse fan, a show jumping fan, or just a movie fan you should give this one a try.  I really loved it!

I give this movie 6 out of 6 thumbs up!
