Growing up with horses, but not a 'horse person', there's a certain amount I knew. Later I came to know horses more and yes, as some state there could be more about the horses here, without reading the book, it's still a very good movie. John Diehl just keeps turning up in movies and doing a great job. Surprised to see him in the lead role, but a little more surprised of his performance. He has my respect. A long ways from Miami Vice days. lol
Knowing a few REAL cowboys, and cowgirls, the movie does a good job as time allowed.
Well done. Don't be too critical, sit back and enjoy the movie.
