Storyline

This sequel to the 1944 Elizabeth Taylor film National Velvet focuses on Sarah Brown, a young, recently orphaned American girl sent to England to live with her aunt - a now grown Velvet Brown. The troubled Sarah is only interested in one thing; horses, and has clearly inherited her aunt's talent. She and her horse Arizona Pie (son of Velvet's Grand National winning stead The Pie) work their way up through the world of eventing, finally being selected for the British Olympic Squad, growing up and finding love along the way.

I loved it! Great family movie--Highly Recommended
10 November 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 13. I think I must have seen it 50 times if not more. I bought 2 copies of the book, and have collected more than a few items of memorabilia that have to do with the movie over the years. I was so jealous of Tatum O'Neal, I wished it was me in the picture. I have been to Ledyard-where they filmed Sarah's first visit to the US as a member of the US team and it was awesome to see the 3 day eventing up close and personal. I love horses and even had my own for quite a while. (I even wanted to change his name to Arizona Pie but figured since he'd had his name for sometime that every time I called him, I was afraid he wouldn't come!!!) I have a copy of the movie and treasure it like it's gold! This movie is for anyone young or old who loves horses. It's a great family movie and one to be watched over and over again.
