This is a very moving and touching film with great country music. I truly like this film because of all the bonding it has between a horse and her rider. They bond quickly which allows them to trust each other to ride and compete. The acting by everyone is really good; however Stephanie Meyers (Siobhan Williams) acts extremely well and she stands out from the rest. It really makes me not like Stephanie because of how well she is portraying this mean character. The cinematography gives you great pictures of Flicka with her amazing jumping capabilities and allows you to appreciate this beautiful looking horse. I love the countryside, it is soooo pretty and you can see why someone would just absolutely love being in the country with nature. It's a very relaxing atmosphere. Flicka: Country Pride is a sequel to Flicka 2. It tells the story of Kelly (Kacey Rohl) and a wild mustang horse whose name is Flicka. They quickly bond and Kelly hopes to get Flicka into an upcoming competition. However with the competition fast approaching, a dishonest rival trainer, and a growing fear of selling the stable, Toby (Clint Black) gets involved to save the day. Directed by Michael Damian (Flicka 2, Marley & Me), Flicka: Country Pride also has great country music by Clint Black who will definitely satisfy your craving for great country music. Even thou I'm not a big country music fan, the music is still pleasant to listen to. My favorite part of the film is when Flicka first appears - she is so pretty. It has a great message to never lose hope, always keep in sight your dreams and what you believe in. Be determined and focused! Although this is mainly a family film, it is rated G and I recommend it to ages 5 to 12. This will definitely appeal to all horse lovers at heart. I give this film 4 out of 5 stars because while it certainly has a good plot, it is just a tad drawn out and I kind of knew what to expect. Flicka: Country Pride is absolutely a good film and I can almost promise that you will enjoy it as much as I do. It gallops onto DVD the first of May. So go gather up everyone and enjoy this family film. Brianna Beaton, age 12, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

I loved watching what the horses were able to do. They were so well trained and amazing at jumping! Flicka: Country Pride tells the story of a teenage girl, Kelly (Kacey Rohl) and the struggles that she and her mom (Lisa Hartman Black) have keeping their horse farm going after the death of her father. Kelly has stopped competing in horse shows since her father's death, but the boarded horses of the stable's team are what keep the horse farm running. Toby, (Clint Black) comes to the farm as the new stable manager and brings along Flicka. Kelly and Flicka hit it off right away. Flicka reminds Kelly that she really loves competing and they begin secretly training. When Stephanie (Siobhan Williams), Kelly's former best friend and wealthiest kid in town leaves to start another team and the trainer goes with her, Kelly steps back into her stirrups. She and her friend, Briggs (Max Lloyd-Jones) find two more riders with potential and heart to complete the team. With four riders they are able to take the team to competition with a little assistance from Toby as their stand-in trainer. The story line is interesting and the actors do a great job of portraying their roles. Kacey not only played the role of Kelly with conviction, but she was also a beautiful rider, who seemed to have a great connection to the horses. Siobhan's character as Stephanie was spot on. I definitely felt that she was full of herself. I like that each of the characters show growth and the life lessons they learn bring them all together as friends. The best actor of all was the horse that played Flicka! So beautiful! Over all Flicka: Country Pride was well crafted with some really pretty cinematic shots of Kelowna, British Columbia. I really enjoyed watching this movie and think you will too! It is a must see for any horse lover and is perfect for kids eight on up. Flicka: Country Pride has something for everyone in the family!

I really liked this film because there was so much passion for riding horses and it made me really want to try horseback riding. This film is about a girl named Kelly Jenkins (Kacey Rohl) and a horse named Flicka. After Kelly's dad dies, her mom, Lindy (Lisa Hartman Black) and Kelly have to hire a stable hand named Toby (Clint Black.) Toby brings along a horse named Flicka that Kelly falls in love with. Finally, Kelly, Toby and Lindy can't hold on to the stables anymore due to financial troubles and in order to save Cherry Creek, their stables, Kelly has to find a horseback riding team that she can compete with in regionals. If she wins, she can get money to save the stables! In this film, Kelly gets bullied a lot by a girl named Stephanie, played by Siobhan Williams. When I watch these mean-girl scenes, I don't get a good message. The acting in this movie is alright, but a little cheesy, and I think it can be a little bit better. My favorite character in this film is Kelly's mom, Lindy. I liked Lindy because she was very nice, caring, and fun. She reminded me of my mom. This family-friendly film is an adaptation of the book, 'My Friend Flicka', written by Mary O'Hara. Flicka: Country Pride was directed by Michael Damian and produced by Connie Dolphin. I recommend this film for horse lovers between the ages of seven through twelve. Kids who are more mature will enjoy watching this movie because is very complex, with all the characters and the many different story lines bouncing around. I give this film three out of five stars due to all the bullying in this movie. Look for this film on DVD and Blueray at a store near you! Camille Bajema, age 10, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

This film stars Kacey Rohl (Red Riding Hood) as Kelly, Lisa Hartman (Back To You and Me) as Lindy, country music star Clint Black (Flicka 2) as Toby, Max Lloyd Jones (Girl Fight) as Briggs and Siobhan Williams (Radio Rebel) as Stephanie. This is a wonderful and heartwarming story about a family struggling to overcome a tragedy and difficult times and how they work through this, with the help of some friends. This film is about a very special horse Flicka, a beautiful black mustang, and the special bond the wild horse builds with Kelly. After Kelly's father dies, she shuts everyone out of her life, but Flicka slowly breaks her down and gives her some hope. Flicka comes into Kelly's life along with her owner, Toby, who becomes the new stable manager after Kelly's father dies. Just as Flicka does for Kelly, Toby is there for Lindy, Kelly's mom, when she needs it the most. One of my favorite scenes is when Kelly and Stephanie battle in a riding competition over a boy they are fighting over. In this scene, Stephanie repeatedly tries to kick Kelly and knock her off her horse and win no matter what. This backfires on her though as it is Stephanie who falls off her horse. My other favorite scene is when Toby is working in his new office and reads the writing on the wall "If you give it your all you've already won". This is a phrase that Kelly's dad liked to use and follow and it reminds Kelly of her father. It's a touching point in the movie and is very moving. It's a good message for everyone to try in follow, in that if you always give your best effort, the outcome doesn't really matter because you gave it your all. My favorite character is Flicka because even though Flicka is a horse, in this film as well as the first two films, Flicka plays an important role in helping people overcome obstacles in their lives. The film is shot on location in British Columbia, Canada and the country side is beautiful and makes you want to go outside and go horseback riding. The stunt coordinator, Kirk Jarrett, did a great job in setting the action scenes on the horses. The riding scenes were well shot and fun to watch. I rate this film 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend this film as well as the first two Flicka films for ages 5 to 105. Kids of all ages, particularly horse lover will enjoy these wholesome family friendly films. Look for this film on DVD and Blu-ray starting May 1. This is a review by Julianna Noone; I can't wait to watch this film again! Julianna Noone, age 12, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

With the competition approaching, a rival trainer stealing business, and a growing fear they may be forced to sell the stable, Toby steps in to turn things around for Kelly and her mother.
