Should I Do It?
The Reins Maker
The Reins Maker (TRM) is a Redemptive Family Film by Fire Catcher Productions (FCP). TRM is a heartwarming story based on the courage, faith, and redemption of a young girl who faces almost insurmountable odds in following her dream to be a great jockey.
Penny Foster’s severe dyslexia and speech impediment are not her only barriers; she also faces the obstacles that only poverty can breed—living in a rundown river house down by the racetracks.
Mom (played by screen star, Juli Tapken) strives to help Penny overcome the challenges by teaching her at home. But Penny’s drab world is truly changed forever when Dad, Sam Foster, an ex-country music star who now works in the stables at the track, is sentenced to prison. Penny’s mom, Jane Foster, must then act on faith to take a job at the track to support the family.
With a seemingly final blow, a few years later, Jane falls ill—leaving Penny angry, rebellious, and resentful. At 19, forced to fight for her survival, Penny encounters an old man in a tack shop. That is when she finds the courage, grace, and faith to “let go and just ride.” The Reins Maker will restore your faith, and Penny Foster will steal your heart in this Michael Arnold/Fire Catcher Productions film.
“FCP is excited to be working with sensational singer/songwriter, Ainsley Ross in this amazing story of hope and redemption. Ainsley has accepted the role of Annie Ross, a young singer/songwriter who’ll perform her music both in the film and on the films soundtrack. Ainsley brings not only her gift of music and song to The Reins Maker team, but an amazing spirit of love and sharing with others; her love for Christ, and how our lives can be enriched and changed through Him is the same story/message that we, Fire Catcher Productions, present in our books and feature films.”
College Bound: Window of Hope
Being fairly familiar with Ross’ talents, Arnold encouraged the producers to provide her with the first crack at the role. Ross’ desire for the audition was equally and passionately met, and she performed it to perfection, according to Arnold – “She absolutely nailed it! The many similarities between the Isabella in the story and Ainsley, the person, are mind-blowing. Isabella is a writer, so is Ainsley. Isabella works with blind children, so does Ainsley, and they are both high school class valedictorians, but it doesn’t stop there as they each possess that genuine, kind, likable, and wonderful quality of faith in action.
Ross, an east Texas native, currently resides in L.A. where she continues to study hard at her craft. She has appeared in a variety of television/film projects, magazine covers, photo shoots, and on stage concerts. She is an ambassador for Actors Models Talent for Christ (AMTC), and was recently selected as a spokesperson and International Woman of Insight: providing inspiring, uplifting and encouraging messages to women of all ages around the world. To complement the mission for College Bound – Ainsley has always had a sincere passion in creating awareness for those enslaved in the area of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. We’re privileged to have her on the College Bound team.”
