A movie about a family who loses the son in a horse accident when the son and daughter are out riding in the woods and the horse stops by the water instead of jumping it and throws the son off and he hits his head on a rock and dies - the family struggles to get along after his death as the mom was quite obsessed with her son, the daughter is closer to her father and they are on a farm with the horses even after the sons death (i think the father goes back to the cities).

Movie was made before 2007, I think it's a 1990's movie might be early 2000's - it's NOT new ^^

I also remember the mom and daughters relationship was not good, and the mom blamed not only her daughter but also the horse for her son's death. Her obsession over her son was not healthy on he marriage either and they were getting to the point of divorce if she didn't wake up.... I remember the horse being blamed by her directly and her "spanking" it's rear to chase him away b/c she didn't want to see him any more... I wish I could remember more but I really need help finding this one, as I can't find it by googling "horse movies" b/c it's just not there mainly b/c it's not 100% about the horse it's more about the family, it just happens to have a horse involved... Please let me know if anyone knows this movie!!!

I'm pretty sure it was a late 1990's movie possibly early 2000's - thanks!!!
