FLICKA: COUNTRY PRIDE (2012) Movie Review

  • By Cara Buckley

Proverbs 17:17: “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in a time of need.”

Flicka has done it again. Wherever there is a farm girl in distress, Flicka finds her and saves the day. In this most recent film, Flicka 3: Country Pride , Flicka finds herself at Cherry Creek Farms, a struggling horse farm, and into the heart of Kelly Jenkins. Kelly loves horses, and she loves working at her Cherry Creek. Most of all she loves her father who dies – leaving his wife and daughter to run the stable on their own.
The Jenkins suffer from the same thing on which the farm’s survival depends, their best paying clients and their only trainer. Even though these people pay an important role in the farm’s survival (and they know it), they have no loyalty. While Kelly’s mother struggles to keep the farm alive, the trainer builds her own farm and takes all the highest paying clients with her leaving Cherry Creek Farms with half a show team for Regional’s.
However, the Jenkins quickly learn that money is not what makes a good team. They scrape together a team and a new team leader. Though they start out rusty, they stick together and work hard. Those attributes shine throughout the competition. This alone is enough to turn some important heads and leave the people who abandoned them to wallow in regret.
Their encouraging behavior and high spirits leave an impression on everyone they encounter, and that impression becomes contagious. An otherwise mean rider reaches out to her little sister for the first time. A competitor compliments Kelly and Flicka’s final performance. An award winning trainer offers his services to Cherry Creek.
This is a very encouraging story, especially in these struggling times. Good business should not be spent walking on egg shells for the stuck up and unfaithful. Sometimes, you should weed the garden and focus on buds that haven’t yet bloomed. They may be small, but they will produce better fruit. God will bless you if you bless his children first.
