OLYMPIC stuff true - the rest pure Disney
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I absolutely agree that this is a fun movie and should be re-released, people should be aware that the 'abused cowpony' portion of the movie is pure Disney poetic license. Nautical ("The Horse with the Flying Tail") was bred to be a jumper. He was by the QH stallion (palomino) Muchacho de Oro out of an Army Remount (mostly TB mare). His registered name was "Peter de Oro." His prior to the Olympic Team history was of being a temperamental jumper who was inclined to "stop" at water and ditch jumps. Hugh Wiley acquired him, and with the help of USET Coach Bert de Nemethy, trained him to be the Olympic level jumper he became. The Olympic team stuff is true, but he cowpony stuff, not so.
