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 »

"Hum, hum, hum/Hum a strummin' song/whoa-oh-oh"
6 February 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A pleasant equestrian outing from Walt Disney has Annette Funicello learning the ropes in a strict British horse-riding school, hoping to overcome her fear of jumping. Perfectly decent film with excellent performances by Janet Munro as the resident teacher (she really is no-nonsense), Tommy Kirk (in one of his better, less-sleepy performances), Donald Pleasance as a humorless instructor, and radiant Annette (who also gets to sing "Strummin' Song", a finger-popping ditty). Only curmudgeons could dislike Annette in this film--she's an easy presence on the screen and her acting isn't bad at all. Prettily-photographed outdoor yarn is tailor-made for older adolescents.
