Soon after, the ranch owner's handicapped daughter Josie has a wild pony especially trained to pull her cart.

A captivating film for anyone who loves horses and ponies.
31 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have only ever seen this film once when I was a child,but I enjoyed it so much that I have never forgotten it and would love to see it again (if it became available on DVD or VHS in the UK).It is a Disney production (which I did not find out until I began looking for the film recently)and is set in Australia.The film focuses on two children,a boy and a girl (each from different families)who both fall in love with the same pony captured for them on separate occasions from the wild.They cannot agree whom the pony belongs to,so they have a test to make the pony choose his owner.This film totally gripped me as a pony lover,seeing the children in anguish over their beloved pet.But it all ends well and has touched my heart forever.This is a film not to be missed by both adults and children who have ever had a pony.It will fill you with emotion.
