Worthy of a re-release
22 December 1998 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful story of success against all the odds; made all the more fantastic because the story is true. This horse was one step away from the glue factory when he was rescued and went on to glory on the U.S. Olympic Equestrian Team. This would be dramatic enough but made all the more so since the horse was a palomino. Not exactly known as jumpers. But this one certainly was and he was extraordinary. His talent became painfully evident to a string of owners because he would constantly escape from every corral they would put him in....one being seven feet high. Great story and one that is deserving of a re-release.
