Taking the Reins
Sep 25, 2021
Starring Nikki DeLoach & Scott Porter
Nikki DeLoach (“Cranberry Christmas”, “Awkward”.) and Scott Porter (“Friday Night Lights”) star in “Taking the Reins”, a new, original movie premiering Saturday, September 25, (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Fall Harvest” programming event. Corbin Bernsen ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") and Janine Turner (“Northern Exposure”) also star.
When Samantha (DeLoach) is told by her magazine editor that she needs to put more of herself into her writing, she decides to go back home to her family’s horse ranch to write an article about the one subject she’s always been passionate about: horses. With her family hosting the annual Equestrian Competition this year it should be easy. But once there, Sam will have to face her past, which not only includes her reason for giving up riding, but also why her marriage fell apart with ex-husband Luke (Porter).
“Taking the Reins” is from Sliding Into Home, LLC. Andrew Gernhard, Dustin Rikert, Barry Hennessey and Colin Theys are producers. Clare Niederpruem directed from a script by Alex Wright.
