The Hollywood Reporter:
"As with most such films, the prize is beside the point. The real subject in this winning group portrait is the bonds that develop between a charismatic collection of horse whisperers, pro and am, and the spirited young beasts they train in a miraculous 100 days. With proper handling this crowd-pleaser with a big heart, which had its world premiere at the Palm Springs festival, could corral an ardent theatrical audience."
"While the pic takes a while to get going (at first, the number of protags seems unwieldy), it soon has the viewer firmly hooked. Straightforward assembly is solid. Parental warning: Exposing children to this feature may lead to years of expensive horse-riding lessons."
The film releases August 24 in New York, with a nationwide platform release in September.
