Wonderful movie
19 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie by accident while staying in hospital & thoroughly enjoyed it. Story covers trust, belief, family values, friendship & is a great movie for all ages (I am an oldie). The struggle of Biddle in overcoming his fear is well portrayed without being too overdone. The moments of comedy are a delight. The older brother faces his own problems as does the father who blames himself for the accident that causes our hero his eye problems. Amanda is wonderful - such a well trained & gentle horse. The movie again shows what trust & belief will overcome.Even shed a small tear. Highly recommends viewing. Wish it was obtainable on DVD.
