Trivia

Annette Funicello's horse-riding character harbors a fear of jumping, and this extended off-camera as well. Funicello writes that her horse obviously sensed her fear and threw her many times during filming. Funicello got scant sympathy, unfortunately, from director William Fairchild, who didn't want Annette on the film and snidely referred to her as "Walt Disney's pet". See more »

Clears the Timeless Light Entertainment Hurdle
12 January 2003 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

Even though the Horsemasters is over 40 years old it is nearly timeless, as the people and studio who made it kept it centered on horses (and the stable and the people) and away from objects and references which would have made it a dated movie by now!

Frankly I had wished the story would have focused more on the Janet Monro character and less on Annette and the Brat Pack (much more like what was done in the Melissa Gilbert movie Sylvester) which would have made it a much better movie as I was more interested in that aspect of the story line!

Anyway I hope Diseny finally puts this one out on DVD as their Diseny Network now only seems to run this gem once or twice a year and then only at around 3:00am in the morning, so if you are not an insomniac or if you do not own a good VCR your out of luck which is a pity as this is a great flick for the younger girls(5-13) out there.
