I have a question

Author: mjc-9

The way this movie was presented makes one think it is a true story as the players are real life. However, it is a far cry from the truth. His own story was remarkable - why distort it? Carl Crawford bought the young horse in Texas (he was double registered as a Thoroughbred and also as a Quarter Horse) and was the sole trainer. He was the only stallion ever allowed to play in the Internationals on Long Island. There was not one word of mention of Carl Crawford. Bob Skene has nothing to do with the training. Woody D (Stormy) was a fully finished (trained) horse the first time Bob Skene ever set foot on him.

Even though the facts of this story have been edited to suit a story line , the movie did present the wonderful game of polo to a large audience that had never even heard of the game let alone see a match played.. Woody D was a great horse paired with a great player. I have tried for years to locate DVD or tape of the old Disney movies such as Stormy and Little Bay Lady. The people are gone, the horses are gone- the like of which we will never be see again. Now it seems the video record of them is also gone. Bay Lady is a reined bridle horse not a "reiner" the mess now seen in horse shows.- too bad you can't see what has been lost.
