Story Synopsis:

SYBIL LUDINGTON is the spirited sixteen-year-old daughter of LT. COLONEL HENRY LUDINGTON, a former aide-de-camp to General Washington and now commander of the Seventh Regiment of Militia for Dutchess County, New York.

Anxious to marry her beau EDMOND OGDEN, Sybil chafes at the bit at home. Curious about the requirements for matrimony and for training her new horse STAR, historic events outside her control force her to grow up very quickly.

The British burn Danbury and there is no one to muster the over 400 troops under Col. Ludington's command. Alone and riding on her trusty steed Star, Sybil braves 40 miles of treacherous lonely backwoods roads on a dark rainy night to muster the troops so they can meet at her father's home by dawn. Along the way, she is hindered in her ride by ICHABOD PROSSER, a rogue outlaw who intends to seek revenge against her father by stopping her from finishing her legendary ride.

Exciting, gripping, and very politically incorrect with its message of patriotism and youthful responsibility, Ludington’s Ride is a film for today’s audience.
