Rodeo Girl 2016

     Pricilla is 14 years old and she has been working very hard at dressage riding.  Her mother is getting married and Pricilla is going to stay with her estranged father for the summer.  She hasn’t seen him since she was one year old.  She’s very disappointed but she does perk up when she learns she will be taking her horse too. 
     This is like a Hallmark TV movie.  You can’t believe what you see but there is rodeo riding in Michigan.  Some spoiled brat behavior with girls and boys!!  There are illustrations of people living high on the hog too.  Even the people who don’t have the money to support their life style??  2 ½* (This movie is OK)

108 min, Family directed by Joel Paul Reisig with Kevin Sorbo, Derek Brandon, Sophie Bolen, Jacqueline and Elizabeth Labadie, Brett Alan Hart, Paityn Hart, Riffany Burns, Carrie Bradstreet, Yassie Hawkes.

Note:  Imdb 5.4 out of 10, audience 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, Amazon 3.5* out of 5* with 41 reviews, Metacritic 40/100 critic 4.0 out of 5 user score.
Special Note:  Filmed in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I wondered about whether or not a horse used for jumping rails in competition could change and start barrel racing in a rodeo?  According to a reviewer with more ‘horse sense!!’  This cannot be done and it shouldn’t be shown as happening?
