One of the worst movies I've ever seen.
21 April 2003 | by (Stockholm/Luleå) – See all my reviews

I am sorry to say it, but this has to be one of the worst disappointments of my entire life.

As a horse owner for more than ten years, I have in fact read many books about girls and horses of the same kind that this movie is supposed to be based on.

However, those stories always had a point--the girl would do *anything* for the horse, even if that involved getting dirty, losing her friends, forgetting about school and her homework and get loathed by the boys. Another important thing is the realism when it comes to the treatment of the horses. The authors of these books and stories often have lots of experience with horses themselves, and the stories use to contain lots of useful advice, no matter if the stories itself sometimes come out a bit unrealistic.

But this movie fails on all points. The main character is weak (surprisingly awful acting from the main characters--if you can talk about acting at all!), and I would not have allowed her to get near any of my horses. The (rather non-existent) story is flawed, unrealistic and also contains lots of continuity errors. The car-crash scene must be one of the most awkward scenes in the entire history of film making. I mean, for God's sake, if she had any knowledge whatsoever about horses, why on EARTH did she try to bike with the horse in tow?!!! And what makes it even more awkward is that when it's supposed to be dramatic, and the horse is "running away" with her, he's merely trotting, the halter-strap is not even tense!

And the fact that she's wearing a white, pure summer dress throughout the entire movie and that it is her love interest who saves them all in the end--well, that's just sickening.

But the most upsetting scene is no doubt when the horse nearly dies, and she just stands there, her dress still white and unstained, holding the halter strap, yelling "help, help"... in a so not convincing way...

The only positive thing about the movie is all the beautiful horses. But not even these will make it worth seeing. I feel sorry for them, having to act in this poor excuse for a film.

If you like this kind of stories that this film is supposed to be based upon, go read the story itself instead. Don't waste any time or money on this movie.
