Despite what you might have read here or elsewhere, the show wasn't based on the book by Anna Sewell, it wasn't an adaptation, it was more a continuation, so if you're expecting a reincarnation of the book on the small screen then you're not gonna get it, so gallop along please - nothing to see here...
The show was made by LWT in the UK, who put rather a lot of money into the production, especially for what was a programme made for children. It was originally broadcast on a Sunday early evening and because of that it reached a wide audience than just kids.
It's popularity ensured it actually made the top twenty in the viewing figures many times during its two seasons.
There was something special about the way it was filmed and presented on screen and was much different from other kids TV produced at the same time. It had beautiful scenery with Gothic overtones and really good acting and each episode highly entertaining.
