Disney needs to re-release this soon, 16 May 2000
Author: cobb-2 from Mt Vernon, WA

This is a wonderful movie, which launched mine and I am sure other peoples interest and amateur careers in show jumping. The rider who rode him for the US Equestrian Team, Hugh Whiley passed away recently. He had a very active career long after Nautical. After Nautical retires, Hugh Whiley would always have young kids and other riders asking him about Nautical and wanting to know how he was and where he was.
