A Horse Called Bear

Synopsis: After his mother unexpectedly dies, 17-year-old Ethan discovers he is the owner of his mother's horse - a horse he never even knew existed. He travels cross country to live with his grandparents and investigate the mystery. His grandmother is supportive but his angry grandfather Otto doesn't seem to want him around. Next door live three children who are taking riding lessons at the same farm where his mother's horse is boarded. Their lives intersect as Ethan deals with his grief over his mother's death and the children deal with a neighborhood bully whose father works at the horse farm. The journey for Ethan, Otto, the three children, the bully and her father all revolve around a gentle and faithful horse called Bear who deeply touches all their lives. This is a delightful redemption-themed family movie that will appeal to children, teens, horse-lovers and people of all ages.

- We're just so glad you're here.

It's been so long since we've seen you.

- I know, I know.

I'll be out here more regularly.

They're pulling my weeds in

exchange for riding lessons.

- That's good.

Let's get going.

- OK.

- Good morning Rachel,

how are you this morning?

- Good, how are you?

- Really well!

Well kids I see you've met Bear.

We use him for our new riders

because he's good-natured.

And he's really a sweet boy.

- Do you know that horses

are a lot like people

when it comes to their social

skills, you know the way

they kinda work with each other?

- Really?

What do you mean?

- There's a definite

pecking order in the herd,

and every time we introduce

a new horse into the pasture,

the other horses come

around, they check him out,

there's a little jostling that goes on,

and a lot of times the new

horse gets bullied a little bit.

- Wow, just like kids can get bullied.

- [Gwen] Exactly.

- I don't like bullies.

- Neither do I, but eventually,

the horses work it out

and everything settles down.

- Hi, check this book out.

- Hi how can I help you?

- Do you have any horse books?

- Yes we do.

Down there on the end.

How about if I go get you some.

- Whoa, this is cool.

- I don't read yet, what does it say?

- It's a summer contest.

- What's the contest about?

- It's an art contest at the library,

and one of the judges

is gonna be Earl Greggs.

- Who's grilled eggs?


- No honey, Earl Greggs,

he's a really famous artist!

This is really exciting!

- Wow, the grand prize is $300.

- Mom, I think I have a chance to win.

If I win, I'm gonna share the money.

So dad did you hear

about that new contest?

- Yeah your mom told me, sounds cool.

- I already know what

I'm gonna buy if we win.

That new video game that just came out.
