Win a race, save a ranch
12 March 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Young Madeline Carroll who has just made cheerleader at her high school and convinced that is the high point of her life is told by her widower dad Joey Lawrence that she will be spending a few weeks of her summer at Aunt Denise Richards's ranch. She's off reluctantly.

But it turns out to be the adventure of a lifetime. She makes some new friends that wouldn't have been in her social circle back home. Especially one friend, a horse named Pistachio.

Pistachio and Carroll are one great team and they turn out to be the saviors of the ranch.

Nothing here we haven't seen in a gazillion family films with a western location. Still it's good family entertainment.

Who knew people still square danced, and young ones too.
