The Horses of McBride: A film based on true story in the Spirit of Christmas {DVD Review}


“When Nicki (MacKenzie Porter) discovers two horses stranded deep in the Rocky Mountain snow, she makes it her mission to find a way to get them to safety. With no other options, she picks up a shovel and starts to dig out the mile long path, inspiring both her father, Matt (Aidan Quinn), and the entire community to band together to save the horses in the spirit of Christmas.”

The Horses of McBride is heartfelt uplifting movie based a true story. If you love the type of movies found through Hallmark, you’ll no doubt want to watch this one this Christmas season. The movie is completely family friendly. It’s a great flick that displays overcoming even though all odds completely seem set against you. There’s a great family and community dynamic played out. 

We meet a family in this tale that are having financial issues feel that all they can do is to uproot and sell their current place, leaving everything they had worked so hard at. Everyone kinda seems for it except for the daughter in the family. She puts her foot down but during this time two abandoned horses are found up in the Canadian Rockies in a tight spot. The girl sets her mind to freeing them though everyone in the beginning was against it seeing the horses starved and injured. I don’t want to give away everything that happens, but I do want recommend that you see it.

This movie is 90 minutes long so it would make a great movie for any evening with family or friends during this time of year. I love stories that give hope even when we can’t see it. The fact this flick is inspired by a true story is inspiring. The acting is very well done and the scenery is breathtaking. You can learn more about this film by following this link:
