from Hallmark:

A Hallmark Movie Channel Original Movie about a serious accident that leaves a champion horseback rider paralyzed. The movie tells the story of the young rider’s indomitable spirit as she fights to walk again, and the response she gets from her family and friends as she makes her incredible journey.

Twenty-two year old,Jenna Danville (Andrea Bowen), is a competitive and disciplined jumper who with her horse, Bentley, is preparing to compete in the Virgina Grand Prix jump-off when a terrible fall results in her being paralyzed from the waist down.

Her father, Phillip Danville (Greg Evigan), has always supported her in every way and is there for her after her fall as she enters into an intense physical therapy program as part of a research study, with no guarantee of success.

Also there by her side, at least at first, is her best friend, Heather Banks (Alicia Ziegler). But when Jenna doesn’t recover quickly, Heather has trouble relating to her friend and disappears. Wheelchair bound, Jenna's life completely changes as she starts the program, her old friends and boyfriend distance themselves. Lonely and frustrated, Jenna comes close to giving up.

Then, she meets Annie (Fiona Dourif), a rough around the edges “goth” punk rock patient in her therapy class, who is also paralyzed with a bad attitude. The two girls become friends as Jenna begins to crack Annie's tough exterior. Jenna also meets her new next-door neighbor, ex-rodeo cowboy and veterinarian, Will Dutton (Rick Malambri), who encourages her to get back on her horse, and helps her saddle up. Just as Jenna is beginning to feel her feet, and fall in love with Will, she learns Annie is in more trouble than anyone could have guessed. Suddenly, Jenna must risk her own life to save her friend, and teach herself healing takes one step at a time.

  1. Great blog!! I would like know know if you know a place where I can download this movie..I'm living outside the US

    Thanks in advance

    1. Try borrowing it from your local library.

  2. does any body know if a soundtrack is available for this film

  3. Did they put Bentley, her horse, down? No one ever said what happened to her horse.

    1. The horse was being rehabbed at the hot veterinarian's house.

    2. No, the horse survives.

  4. Does anybody know what happened to her horse, Bentley?

  5. Yes it was a good story line with a good message but, wow they really should have done some research for this movie. The jumping scenes were very inaccurate for a Grand-Prix level round. Also how was the horse hurt at all? A simple refusal of a jump such as that would not be cause for a be hurt in anyway. I have seen and ridden through many refusals harder than the one shown in this movie. They should have either shown both the horse and rider falling or a least shown the horse limping to make things a little more believable.

  6. Has this movie been released on DVD and is there a soundtrack?

    1. I'm sure it has. Check and see if your local library has it.

  7. Jena & Will bonding at Creek...th t song that enveloped the scene as their eyes meet...WOW! WHAT WAS THE TITLE OF THAT SONG?
