A good movie with a favorable depiction of an American Saddlebred five gaited show horse.
20 October 2003 | by (Lexington, Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in my youth and was mesmorized by the music and country scenery. It also tweaked my interest in the horse featured, an American Saddlebred five-gaited show horse. This interest eventually got me into raising and showing this breed. I would love to get a DVD or Video of this movie to show my grand children. As I recall there was also a scene of the horse fighting an elk. I was always curious as to how those animals were trained to interact.
