A Horse For Danny is a 1995 family drama movie that will touch the hearts of all who watch it. Directed by Dick Lowry, the film stars Leelee Sobieski, Robert Urich, and Ron Brice. The movie tells the story of Danny Bara (Sobieski), a troubled teenage girl who finds solace in caring for a mistreated horse named Stormy. Danny has been challenged with a lot in life: a mother who is a workaholic, a father who is in jail and a grandmother who doesn't appear to have much interest in her life. But with horses, Danny finds a release from her struggles.

Danny's passion for horses is stoked when she befriends Mutton, a local horse trainer who sees the potential of both Danny and Stormy. Mutton tells Danny she could use her riding experience to compete for prize money in horse shows, and she becomes determined to become a successful rider.

However, not everything goes smoothly for Danny. She must navigate through a series of obstacles and tough decisions as she trains Stormy for competition. Danny will have to show strength that she never knew existed in order to rise up against challenges, both internal and external.

Robert Urich plays the role of Mutton, the grizzled horse trainer who recognizes Danny's potential and provides guidance along the way. Ron Brice plays the role of Slim, a local bully who becomes a threat to Danny and Stormy's future in the shows.

Throughout the movie, Danny's love for Stormy and her growing confidence is palpable. Her dedication is inspiring as she transforms from a lost and troubled teenager to a determined and focused young woman. The horse and it's relationship with Danny are beautifully shot and forefront to the story itself. Some viewers have expressed interest in the cinematography, which is so elegantly done that the atmosphere of the vast countryside is evident even if the viewer had never seen it before.

A Horse For Danny teaches valuable life lessons regarding hard work, perseverance, and overcoming obstacles. The character development is truly amazing, with Danny evolving from a timid girl to a confident young woman. The movie's more significant themes explore the family and bond with them, trust with oneself, and strengthening the relationship between a girl and her beloved horse in the backdrop of picturesque settings.

Overall, A Horse For Danny is a heartwarming and inspiring movie that is a must-watch for horse lovers and families looking for an inspiring and positive film to watch together. While the story can be a bit formulaic, its themes and central relationship make it more than just an ordinary film. Robust performances by Sobieski, Urich, and Brice, coupled with engaging writing and beautiful cinematography, make this movie an enjoyable watch.
