Slated to release on DVD and digital on July 5, this family film is set on the real-life California equine rescue Red Bucket Equine Rescue!
We at Horse Nation love a good family horse flick. You know the type: a troubled young person gets involved with a horse who needs a second (or third, or fourth) chance; they develop a relationship with various wise advisors; the film culminates in a brilliant underdog victory that saves the horse, the young person and everything they know and love from total ruin.
Predictable? Maybe — but admit it, you love it all the same!
And these family horse films are even better when they help raise awareness of a critical issue: equine rescues and the daily struggle to keep the doors open, the horses fed and to continue the good work of saving more animals. We’ve featured Red Bucket Equine Rescue of Chino, California in a past Standing Ovation column, but we’re happy to see that this rescue is gaining even more attention as the setting for Emma’s Chance!

Much of the movie was shot on Red Bucket Equine Rescue itself, with real rescue horses making appearances in the film, as well as members of Red Bucket’s staff. Learn more about Red Bucket Equine Rescue by visiting the website, and pre-order Emma’s Chance by clicking here!
