There are some beautiful shots in this movies... horses being led into the barn through a beautiful cloud of dust, some wonderful scenes of galloping horses, and plenty of horse "eye candy".
On the humorous side, there are some rather corny lines - such as Hannah flirting with the delivery guy about jerky... seriously? Oh well, it was good for a chuckle. I also found the ghost of her father to be a bit weird. I can see what they were trying to get at, recreating her father's memories and all, but it did come off a bit awkward in my opinion. That being said, I am a big fan of the theme of hope and the relentless "try again" spirit that runs through this movie in addition to the strong family message.
Though I found the movie to be a little slow at times I was pleasantly surprised by the ending. It provided a twist not usually found in these types of movies. I won't say anything more, other than that it was refreshing to see a different ending than I expected.
Overall I would say it is a sweet movies that would be great for a family movie night.
