"Saddle Up" features three inspiring movies for horse lovers about overcoming challenges. In "Natalie's Rose," Natalie Canton's world is turned upside down when she loses her mother to cancer on Valentine's Day. Now the heartbroken 15-year-old feels that all she has left of her beloved mother is a fragile white rose, her only symbol of hope. As a much-needed distraction, Natalie's father sends her to Nevada to spend Christmas on her aunt's ranch. On the first day, the rose falls from her coat pocket undetected and into the riding corral, where a pure white horse appears in its place the next day. Natalie names the horse Rose, and as she learns to care for her, she slowly begins to heal. "Healed by Grace" tells the story of Riley Adams, a performer whose dreams of becoming a world class dancer are shattered after a horrific accident. Clinging to her faith, she is determined to recover in time for the national competition. Refusing to let rival dance student Alea's merciless teasing for Riley's beliefs stand in her way, Riley fights to regain mobility. When the college student discovers equine therapy, she develops a special bond with a beautiful mare named Grace and finds an unexpected romance. "Second Chances" is an uplifting tale of a little girl's physical and emotional reawakening after a car crash claims her father and her spirit. The accident leaves 10-year-old Sunny Mathews unable to walk without crutches, forlorn, and withdrawn. When Sunny and her mother Kathleen move next door to a horse ranch run by former rodeo star Ben Taylor, Sunny meets and falls in love with a mean-spirited, crippled horse named Ginger, and her recovery begins.
