Sixteen year old Katie McLaughlin (Alison Lohman) is a headstrong and determined teenager trying to find her way in life. Katie forms a bond with a wild horse she names Flicka. Despite pleas from her father (Tim McGraw) not to ride Flicka, Katy sets out to follow her own path not only with the horse, but with her future to show that she is capable taming Flicka and one day taking over the family ranch.

Cast & Crew
It's got lovely vistas, and earnest performances, and Allison Lohman... is very believable.
Alison Lohman, the 27-year-old actress who plays Katy, makes the whole thing worth watching.
A perfectly pleasant updating of the story, well-acted, nicely directed and beautifully photographed.
The latest version of this beloved kid-loves-horse story has everything a film requires to attract an equine-crazy audience of all ages.
As things progress, the magic of the story asserts itself over the audience.
A guaranteed tearjerker.
This is the kind of movie that many families are looking for, but all too rarely receive.
