Storyline

Rich gambler Barney Ingram's white prize stallion Cloverdale III is abducted by creditor Emmett Fallon, but he hits a school-bus and the horse ran off. Schoolkids Lucas Mitchell and Stephanie Ward believe "Emmett's" horse, find it and make a deal. It gets stabled with rich Madame Rene, renamed Lightning, but will be trained by the girl who dreams of a riding career. Barney's gambling debts meanwhile catch up, so he can't enjoy his much younger, ignorant lady-friend. Written by KGF Vissers

This movie is a pile of horse pucky
16 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Delightfully cheesy horse pucky, though. I agree wholeheartedly with the other reviewer--the use of stock footage of several different horses doesn't fool anyone! Not to mention the glaring continuity error--children under the age of 18 are NOT allowed to show stallions at almost all rated or USA Equestrian sanctioned horse shows. This movie is not entirely without its redeeming points though. There's a superb line of dialogue where Girl Rider wishes Bad Guy Competition Rider "Good luck" as he rides into the arena. He sneers at her and says, "When you're as GOOD as i am, you don't NEED luck." heh. awesome. I would love to get all of my barn buddies together and watch this while drinking alcoholic beverages.
