A COWGIRL'S STORY follows Dusty Rhodes (played by Bailee Madison / Just Go With It) who moves from her rural home to live with her grandfather (played by iconic singer Pat Boone) in a suburban community while her parents are serving in Afghanistan. At her new high school, Dusty makes friends with a group of kids that aren't used to her country lifestyle; including Savanah (Chloe Lukasiak / Center Stage: On Pointe) whose own father was recently killed serving in the Army. You may take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl as Dusty brings a new sense of style and spirit to the community. Sharing her love of horses, Dusty convinces her new friends to join her in forming an equestrian drill team that allows them to perform at rodeos and parades.
Just as Dusty is becoming comfortable with her new home, she receives news that turns the world upside down. Her mother's helicopter has been shot down and she is missing in action. To keep from being overwhelmed by fear and helplessness, Dusty with the help of her grandfather puts together a very special riding performance by the new high school equestrian team in honor of her parents and all the American soldiers fighting overseas. Patriotic spirit envelopes the entire town which comes out to support the performance making it an unforgettable event for both the riders and their audience.
A COWGIRL'S STORY will be available on DVD at Amazon and Target among other retailers across the United States and Canada as well as on major online platforms like iTunes as a digital download beginning April 18, 2017. The movie is about an hour and a half long. To be honest the story is a bit cheesy but this movie will put a smile on your face and the horse scenes were especially entertaining and captured my kids attention. So A COWGIRL'S STORY gets A GEEK DADDY nod of approval for being a nice selection for a family movie night.
