7 June 2003 | by (Harleysville, USA) – See all my reviews



This is a wonderful film about a horse with whom I was personally acquainted. It is a true story about his rise from the very bottom of the heap. When I first knew him, he was known as Injin Joe. I met him at the Devon Horse Show in Pennsylvania. I followed his career for several years. Then he dropped out of sight at Devon. I missed him very much, and hoped that nothing had happened to him.

Imagine my delighted surprise at seeing this film one day at our local movie theater! I absolutely adored seeing his early history and his subsequent career.

When he was at Devon, you always thought he was going to take the jump with him, but he would give a real buck at the top, which cleared the jump for him. In the movie, I saw that they had trained most of the buck out, but didn't get rid of the flip of the tail which gives the film its name.

I heartily recommend this film for anyone who loves horses and/or rags to riches stories

I would love to acquire a copy of this film, tape or DVD, to see again and to show to my Eventing daughter and grandchildren.
