In FLICKA 3, Toby (Clint Black) comes to Cherry Creek Farms to serve as Stable manager for a family in financial and emotional stress. Kelly (Kacey Rohl) is a teenage horse lover who lives on the ranch with her mother, Lindy (Lisa Hartman). Kelly’s father died in an accident, and the stables have had increasing difficulty making a profit since.

Toby brings Flicka with him, and Kelly quickly befriends the beautiful horse. Kelly’s former friend, Stephanie, boards her horse at the stables. Stephanie felt slighted by Kelly after Kelly’s father died. She develops a growing dislike of Kelly and increasingly treats her like some lower class servant. When Stephanie’s dressage teammate is injured, Flicka helps Kelly win a spot on the team, much to the chagrin of Stephanie. The jealousy grows even worse when Briggs McBride, the team’s male member, shows more interest in Kelly than Stephanie.

Will the ranch be saved? Will Kelly and Stephanie get over their differences?

The tension in this new FLICKA movie deals in a helpful way with issues many teenagers face in high school today. Families watching COUNTRY PRIDE together could easily have a good discussion afterwards about what Kelly and Stephanie learn from their mistakes.

FLICKA: COUNTRY PRIDE is the kind of entertainment you wish your children would see instead of the vulgar comedies and horror shows that come pouring out of Hollywood. The filmmakers are to be commended for making a very clean, wholesome movie with a great message. While the movie doesn’t openly honor Jesus Christ, it certainly promotes biblical values.

Some of the shots of Flicka just running alone are a testament to the wonder of God’s creation. Horses are such powerful creatures, but they’re willing to submit that power even to teenage girls as a sign of love and obedience.
