Storm Rider


Spoiled 18-year old Dani Fielding’s world is turned upside down when her father gets arrested for securities fraud. She has to leave her cushy home and loses her prize horse to stay with her gruff uncle, Sam. As Dani and her uncle struggle to bond, she’s given an orphaned colt that is a different type of horse than she is used to training. Dani pours her affection into “Stormy” and uses him to replace what’s missing in her unsettled life. Through Stormy, Dani soon realizes that truly caring about others is the answer to most of life’s biggest problems. When her uncle and friends need her the most, Dani and Stormy must work together to save the day and learn the true meaning of the word “family.”

Dove Review

This inspirational film is about the journey of growing up. Dani Fielding receives a baby mule as a pet and she decides to raise it and it becomes her friend.

C. Thomas Howell plays Mitch, Dani’s father, and he winds up in prison for the shady deals he has made. Dani has to live with her bachelor uncle, Sam. They are like oil and water in the beginning. He’s a veterinarian who speaks his mind and she gives it back to him. Her pampered life is traded for life in the country and it takes a while for her to adapt.

Dani winds up attempting to save her uncle and others following a plane crash and this attempt involves fighting off wolves, cold and the elements. The determined teen plans to make a difference in the lives of those who have suffered from the tragedy.

This inspirational movie is Dove approved for all ages. The themes include forgiveness, sacrifice and what greed can do. This movie is well worth your time so see it soon!
