Und wieder spring ich über Pfützen is the German title
I saw this as a kid in Germany, and the movie has stuck with me ever since. I honestly don't remember a lot of it, except the boy had Polio and a love for horses. I remember some spectacular scenery. I've actually looked for this movie to watch it again, but can't find it anywhere. I'm hoping it stood the test of time, but considering the story (and I even remember the music) stuck with me all these years...well that has to stand for something. I don't know if there is an English version (I presume so), but if you come across it, give it a try. I think it might be one of those movies you either love or hate. If I find it again, and get to watch it, I'll update the review.
