I recently had the opportunity of watching the movie A Sunday Horse with my family. This movie has come out in DVD this week in Canada.
Synopsis: After a near-fatal accident on a horse that the experts thought was nothing special, a determined rider from the wrong side of the tracks defies all the odds to pursue her dreams of winning a national jumping championship.
The movie is based on the true story of Debi Walden Connor who was able to train a rough horse into a Olympic Medal champion. As we sat down to watch the movie last week, I knew I would appreciate it when I realized that it was based on a true story. I wasn’t disappointed. The movie will stir a range of emotions from joy and determination to sadness. You will realize how some people still have judgmental comments for people not at the same level of society of them, how some can be determined to the point of contradicting what other have said about your condition and how in the end you can come out stronger by keeping your faith and trusting the Lord in your life.
The flow of the story in the movie is constant and there is no downtime which could make it long. It was just perfect for our family and we really enjoyed seeing the jumping scenes as well as the unfolding of the story. The cast also include William Shatner, Nikki Reed, and Linda Hamilton, all actors that have made their marks in previous television shows and movies.
If you have enjoyed horse movies like Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Moondance Alexandrer, and Flicka, you will definitively enjoy A Sunday Horse. I find it is a great family movie to watch and then have a discussion about certain scenes afterward. If you are looking for a great movie to watch this week-end, swing by a store near you and get A Sunday Horse.
A Sunday Horse DVD is available in stores near you, even on amazon.ca.
