Wonderful movie that Disney should re-release and put on videotape
8 August 2002 | by (Melbourne, FL) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding documentary with tremendous appeal to all horse lovers--especially those equestrians interested in jumping or in true-life Cinderella stories. The former Olympic rider, Hugh Wiley, does a wonderful job with "Nautical," the palomino who can jump to the moon (well, almost). Disney definitely should resurrect this one--and put it on VHS or DVD!
