Thoughts from OHM:
I finally got the chance to sit down with my girls, 7 and 11, to check out this movie tonight. We've really been on a horse-flick kick lately, and it was also perfect timing that tomorrow is 'Western Day' at my daughters school. So we couldn't wait to sit down and get started!
This movie is absolutely wonderful. It very easily held each of our attention for it's 92 minutes.
The characters were picked perfectly, and were just so relatable. The main character Ida is absolutely adorable, even with her not-so-angelic attitude. The music was great, and had me tapping my toes a few times. There were even parts where I admit this emotional mom was tearing up! This movie is a family-friendly gem! We highly recommend!
