Texas Rein, the movie, is a family drama based on the novel of the same name, by Becky Rodgers Boyette. The story explores the family dynamic when a prodigal returns, the gift of forgiveness and the hope of second chances. Cassie Roberts, an ex-rodeo queen turned single mom, gets an urgent call to return home for her sick father. Her sleepy hometown, Summerville, Texas, is the last place on earth Cassie wants to be, until she has the opportunity to put things right with a fresh start and the hope of Olympic Gold. It may be her father's dream to enter his prize winning Quarter Horse, Splash into the Olympic Trials. But it's Cassie's dream to ride him. With the help of an "aw shucks" cowboy, horse trainer, Chase Eversoll, Cassie might just be able to make all their dreams come true.

The client is holding auditions for 6 different roles in the film. The role of Chase Eversoll - Caucasian, Male, 30's. All-American cowboy. Gentle and humorous with strong work ethic. He believes he's found a champion in Marvin Roberts' prize horse, but his desire to train the champion competes with his growing interest in Marvin's daughter, Cassie. Western horseback riding/reining experience a plus. Marvin Roberts- Caucasian, Male, Mid-Late 60's. Gentleman rancher. Strong, wise, and faithful husband and father, despite the fact his dreams concerning horses and his daughter have never materialized. Has a difficult but loving relationship with his daughter, Cassie. (Western horseback riding/reining experience a plus). Peggy Roberts- Caucasian, Female, 60's. Southern, steadfast rancher's wife. After Marvin's surgery, she makes it her job to keep her husband healthy. Loves her daughter Cassie, but sometimes can't contain her disappointment in Cassie's life choices. Aunt Clara- Caucasian, Female, 60's. Chase's aunt, old friend of the Roberts' family. Quirky, but genuine. Kind hearted and quick with a word of scripture (if not always the perfect selection), she's wise and becomes Cassie's friend and moral compass. Jeff Deavers- Caucasian, Male, 30's. Guy's son, newly graduated veterinarian and childhood friend of Cassie's. Good looking in an ordinary, guy-next-door kind of way. He'd like the relationship to go further than "just friends," with Cassie, but knows it probably won't. And Garrison- Caucasian, Male, Early 30's, Cassie's east coast love interest. Wealthy, expensively handsome. A true "player" - Cassie is more of an accessory than a girlfriend. He wants her even more when he thinks he can't have her.

The film was written and is being directed by Rebecca Rogers Nelson. The film is currently set to begin shooting in May and will shoot in Virginia through June. Auditions for the film are taking place over the next couple weeks with callbacks scheduled for April 26th. Any talent that are chosen for the film will be paid.
