Dove Review

Pine Hollow is in financial trouble and the bank is threatening to foreclose on the property. The future of the beloved farm appears to turn when the DiAngelo family makes an investment of cash into the stables. These plans come with a heavy price upon those who love the farm in more ways than one. The safety of both horses and riders are threatened as status becomes more important than safety. When the fortune of the wealthy DiAngelos is found to be in trouble, Veronica’s father attempts to turn his luck around by investing in a promising young racehorse with disastrous results.

Without the DiAngelo money, the future of Pine Hollow is once again in doubt and the Saddle Club must now scramble to raise enough money to save their beloved stable. This film features a strong emphasis on working together, not giving up and solid friendships. Veronica, ever the cantankerous and difficult one, has her character tested when all that she bases her worth on is tested. She fears she will be “no-one” without the outward status money has brought to her life. She is challenged to look deep within when she must decide if she is willing to push beyond wealth and position for the greater good. Horse-loving children of all ages will enjoy this fine film set against the breathtaking Australian countryside, and we are pleased to award “Saving Pine Hollow” the resounding Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for viewers of all ages.
