Eleven-year-old Ida Clayton (Bailee Madison) comes from a broken home and yearns to become a Cowgirl Chick, even though her burned-out mother, Elaine, tells her there’s no way she could ever ride a horse and do stunts like that. Ida dreams of seeing her father, who she has never met and her mother won’t tell her anything about.
